WatchTrippin 2018 - Visiting Girard-Perregaux - Episode IV
In today's episode of our WatchTrippin adventure, we headed with our team for La Chaux-de-Fonds in the Canton de Neuchâtel. This city is one of the most important center for Swiss watchmaking manufacturing with not only a serious number of brands found there, but also a multitude of suppliers of the industry.
But for the first part of this visit we focused on Girard-Perregaux, one of the oldest brand still in activity and had the chance of exploring in much detail their production. Over the years, this brand has come up with some pretty spectacular timepieces, gyrotourbillons being one of their trademark feature, but also the very innovative Constant Force escapement.
