The Haute Horlogerie brands Girard-Perregaux and JeanRichard are included under the holding company Sowind Group that also includes Sowind Manufacture, which develops and produces a complete portfolio of high-end watch movements (more than 100 variants) and collections of mechanical watches.
Since 1791, Girard-Perregaux has been reinventing the long tradition of Swiss watchmaking. It has succeeded in preserving and developing its unique expertise over a period of more than two centuries. Some of the most innovative designs and movements first created by Constant Girard-Perregaux in the 19th century, such as the Tourbillon with three gold Bridges, are still being produced today.
As a fervent defender of the craftsmanship that goes into the creation of beautiful timepieces, the Brand designs and produces its watches, including the movements, with the focus on perfection, pushing the boundaries ever further. More than simply an example of precision mechanics, each Girard-Perregaux timepiece is also a work of art, its spirit reflecting the care and attention lavished on it by its creators, from the engineer to the master watchmaker. Its collections are the result of a subtle marriage between tradition and state-of-the-art technology.
The pursuit of excellence, a respect for history, the fostering of innovation and a focus on exclusivity; the Brand’s philosophy is built on expertise and authenticity, but also has its roots in imagination and emotion.
