Reading Time: 2 minutes

The prestigious Swiss House Girard-Perregaux is celebrating its 220 years of watchmaking by creating an exhibition called: A TALE OF INSPIRATION – unveiling 220 years of watchmaking Art.

Girard-Perregaux Celebrating 220 years

I have already talked about this brand a few month ago thanks to its launch of the new 1966 Blue Dial Chronograph. With this great anniversary, it is the entire Brand that we can discover in a beautiful worldwide traveling exhibition. It will be the most beautiful and complete set of Girard-Perregaux Timepieces outside Switzerland. Some of the collections came directly from the Brand museum and you can also find some beautiful contemporary Timepieces. From the Museum, you can discover, for example, the ESMERALDA Pocket Timepieces. A beautiful and innovative Timepiece that created a huge buzz during Paris Universal exhibition of 1889.
