Girard-Perregaux WinteRace 2019
In 2019, Girard-Perregaux was once again partner of the "WinteRace" and took the occasion to present its Quasar watch, unveiled mid-February at Watches & Wonders Miami.
For the third consecutive year, Girard-Perregaux was partner of the WinteRace, among the most anticipated regularity races in Italy, which was held from 28th of February to 3rd of March 2019. 50 teams with classic cars registered until 1976 competed on a 550 km long route in the Italian Dolomites landscape in two day stages.
For the second time in a row, the winner of this year’s edition of the WinteRace on classic cars is the team “Sisti-Gualandi” driving a Lancia Aprilia from 1937. On this occasion, Girard-Perregaux rewarded with its iconic "Laureato 42mm” black dial and exclusive strap dedicated to WinteRace, the team “Sala-Sala” on a Porsche 356 C from the year 1964 as best father-son crew. During the 4th Porsche WinteRace, a competition of modern Porsche Cars which follows the same rules as the one for classic cars, the Girard-Perregaux team “Valli-Bozzano”, driving a Porsche Boxster S 718 was able to position themselves at the 3rd place of the podium.
Unveiled in mid-February during "Watches and Wonders" in Miami, Girard-Perregaux choose to present its new Quasar model, under the auspices of the "Earth to Sky" theme, for the first time to the European public during the WinteRace 2019. From “Earth to Sky”, a philosophy that surely unites watchmaking with the world of motor sports, both dedicated to the constant search for new dimensions in technical and technological developments. This new timepiece unveils, for the first time, the show of the iconic Neo-Tourbillon Movement Under Three Bridges, in a skeleton version, through a case entirely made of sapphire glass.
