The Swiss are famous for the ingenuity and elegance they bring to watchmaking. For over two centuries now, GIRARD-PERREGAUX has won renown for its many remarkable creations. From the research and development stage right through to the final adjustments made by their master watchmakers, the maker continues to enrich its heritage through its Haute Horlogerie collection. Following SIHH, they will launch the PVD version of the RD-01 chronograph next week. The watch was originally developed in cooperation with Laurent Picciotto of Chronopassion, Paris (All pieces will come with “Pour L.P.” engraved on the back). 43 mm dial features a steel case with black PVD-coating, anti-reflection sapphire crystal, and a see-through sapphire crystal case back fastened with 6 screws.
The movement is powered with GP 033C0 mechanical with automatic winding. With a vulcanized natural rubber strap and a steel PVD folding buckle as well as a power reserve of 46 hours, this limited edition of 250 pieces is the quintessence of the art of watchmaking. Carrying an equally impressive price tag of $9,000 (10,980CHF), it is not going to be sold exclusively through the GP boutiques but will be available throughout Girard-Perregaux dealers, worldwide.
