Lot Essay

The Casquette, one of Girard-Perregaux's most iconic 70’s timepieces, has been rebooted by Bamford Watch Department just in time for Only Watch 2021.

Girard-Perregaux, a loyal supporter of Only Watch, has dedicated a unique piece for the now-legendary biennial auction.

The Manufacture, currently celebrating its 230th anniversary, has reimagined a 70’s icon, the ground-breaking Casquette.

Created in partnership with Bamford Watch Department, the Casquette Only Watch revisits the original but adds a notably modern twist.

HISTORY OF THE BRAND
Founded in 1791, Girard-Perregaux is one of the oldest fine watchmaking Manufactures still in operation and is appreciated by those in the know. This year the company celebrates its 230th anniversary, a fitting testament to the brand’s watchmaking expertise. Indeed, the firm’s history is dotted with exceptional creations that skilfully blend aesthetics and functionality. These models include the iconic Laureato, born in 1975, as well as the legendary Tourbillon ‘With Three Gold Bridges’, a watch that made the invisible visible, transforming bridges from just a technical element to an integral part of the timepiece - a first in watchmaking. Girard-Perregaux’s place at the vanguard of horological innovation is confirmed by over one hundred recorded patents together with numerous prizes and distinctions. It remains one of the few watchmakers to retain Manufacture status for over two centuries by mastering all the required horological skills in-house and making watches infused with a notable degree of authenticity. While Girard-Perregaux respects its heritage, it continues to look ahead, embracing new technologies, state of the art materials, and fresh takes on iconic shapes.
