Girard Perregaux for Boucheron and Ermenegildo Zegna
Girard-Perregaux delivered a restricted release for Boucheron. Recently they additionally delivered a watch made as a team with Ermenegildo Zegna. Two joint efforts, two wonderful new watches!
Over the most recent years Girard-Perregaux delivered new models in the 1966 assortment and by and by I simply adored each and every model. So you may say I’m one-sided. These two new models are not explicitly declared as a feature of the Girard-Perregaux 1966 line, anyway the similarity is more than persuading (at any rate to me).
The new restricted version Girard-Perregaux pour Boucheron watch has a round case with essentially similar looks as the 1966 assortment. No pause, the case is 1mm greater than the complicated models of the Girard-Perregaux 1966 assortment, which have a distance across of 40mm. The case includes a similar chamfered bezel with a light silk finish. The center piece of the case has bends reaching out into lugs.
According to the press data of the Girard-Perregaux for Boucheron, Luigi Macaluso planned this case in 1985 for the brand’s Haute Horlogerie watches. The case is made of pink or white gold and measures 41 mm in width. It is 30 meter water-safe, which is equivalent to the other models of the 1966 collection.
Besides hours, minutes and little seconds it the Girard-Perregaux pour Boucheron highlights a moon stage sign and enormous date. You will likewise see Boucheron’s location: 26, place Vendome.
The date show is worth unique consideration, as indicated by the official statement. “It depends on the brand’s protected framework to ensure wonderful lucidness lacking the isolating line between the tens and units.” Wait, this sounds recognizable! I know just one brand where the two digits of the enormous date are ‘flush’. To be sure, that would be Glashütte Original .
This framework works diversely however. One of the two circles is straightforward and is on top of the other plate. This straightforward plate, showing the tens, is flimsy. Including an immediate date change system, it’s basically difficult to see the plates turn. It takes just 15/1000ths of a second, for the date to change!
Inside ticks the brand’s in-house programmed development, type GP03300-45, with a recurrence of 28,800 vibrations each hour. The development with 32 gems has 46 hours of force reserve.
Another watch including a development of the type GP03300 family (see photograph above) is made as a team with Ermenegildo Zegna (attempt to articulate that out burden). This watch is known as the Centennial Watch and was intended to commend the 100th commemoration of Ermenegildo Zegna.
The Centennial Watch includes a 40mm wide 18k pink gold case and inside ticks the programmed type GP0 3300-42. Other than hours, minutes and a little seconds register, it has a yearly schedule with a pointer for date and month. Clearly this is the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Annual Calendar and Equation of Time … just without the condition of time and the month pointer moved to the correct portion of the dial. After these changes and with another name on the dial, it’s as yet a wonderful watch!
The Girard-Perregaux pour Boucheron watch is restricted to 50 pieces for each case material (pink and white gold) and will be accessible solely in Boucheron stores.
The Centennial Watch is restricted to 100 pieces in pink gold and is just accessible in the best 20 Ermenegildo Zegna leader stores.
