Girard-Perregaux is a high-end Swiss Watch manufacturer
Formed in 1790 by 19-year old Jean-Francois Bautte, Girard-Perregaux has an history of innovation that has perpetuated through to today. In the 1960′s, the ‘Gyromatic’ line featured a high-frequency mechanical movement that produced extraordinary accuracy. In 1970, Girard-Perregaux became the first Swiss manufacturer to mass produce quartz watches.
The Gyromatic line from the 1960′s is very collectable and they can often be found at reasonable prices.
