Watchmakers for over 200 years, Girard Perregaux has built an enduring legacy in the most demanding of luxury industries. Renowned for their exacting standards and their adamant refusal to compromise on any aspect of the watchmaking process, the Swiss firm has seduced the most prestigious names in the world, from prominent individual buyers to esteemed companies like Ferrari.
The 1950's were an important decade for Girard Perregaux. In 1951, they introduced a watch with a marvelous revolutionary new winding system - the Gyromatic.
Here are some of this watch's features:
* Highly-efficient "Gyromatic" mechanism to keep the watch powered by movements of the wrist
* Straightforward design eliminates vulnerabilities commonly found in other automatic movements such as couplets, rachets, and other delicate parts
* Very effective power transmission systems requires smaller wrist movement to keep the watch fully powered. This also insures the watch spends more time running at its peak power level for more accurate timekeeping
* Rugged stainless steel waterproof case
The midsize steel case is in excellent condition. The silver dial is original. The Girard Perregaux movement is clean.

The Girard-Perregaux brand was founded in 1791, when the talented watchmaker, Jean-Francois Bautte, put his name on the first timepiece he created. It is considered one of the oldest luxury watch brands throughout the industry. The brand Girard-Perregaux was established in 1856 in La Chaux-de-Fonds upon the marriage of Constant Girard to Marie Perregaux. Girard-Perregaux credited with creating the Tourbillon with Three Bridges upon receiving the gold medal at the 1889 Universal Exhibition in Paris. The brand is also credited with creating the concept of wearing a timepiece around the wrist, which found success through the commission of 2000 wristwatches by Emperor Wilhelm I for the German Imperial Navy. They introduced the Vintage 1945 Collection in 1945, which was inspired by Art Deco design incorporated with the brand’s trademark movements and features. The brand became the first Swiss company in 1970 to make a quartz movement on an industrial scale. Girard-Perregaux signed an agreement in 1993 with Ferrari that led to a partnership between 1994 and 2004, which saw the result of a number of complicated sporty timepieces.
