History of Writing Time
Girard Perregaux GP Circuito Illustration
As early as the 19th century, chronographs were born. Girard Perregaux began producing chronograph watches at the time. The ultra-precise and elegant pocket watches have created a legendary history of Girard-Perregaux dedicated to the pursuit of precision. The precise design is equipped with a double-second chronograph function, which is used to calculate the time interval in the middle, or two activities with the same start time and different end time.
These designs symbolize the vitality and spirit of the brand, and over time, watches from the 1920s and 1930s followed. Since then, GP Girard Perregaux has successfully created a number of chronograph sports watches renowned for reliability and stability, relying on professional technology. In the 1950s, Girard Perregaux designed chronographs specifically designed to meet the needs of engineers. Later in the 1960s, more sporty styles were introduced, as well as timepieces capable of calculating short periods of time, bringing to the younger generation chronographs that could calculate their athletic performance. At the same time, GP Girard Perregaux’s ‘Ready-Go’ three-timer watch specially designed for rally and motorcycle riders was also launched with great success.

In the 1990s, these classic designs inspired the management who loved racing at the time, so they relaunched the chronograph inspired by the 1960s design to pay tribute to the racing world.
This year’s Girard Perregaux presents the ‘Sport Competizione’ chronograph series, which is inspired by cars and pays tribute to the fast world. The newly designed lines perfectly integrate the retro style and the future style, reminiscent of the world famous 1987 ‘Club Italia’ chronograph watch. That golden age of quartz symbolized the rebuilding of an emerging market for quality and classic products.
