Girard-Perregaux - Liberating The Bridge

Girard-Perregaux Liberating The Bridge

Infinity means freedom for the Free Bridge.

After an enormous amount of work on the Manufacture and the structure of the collections since Girard-Perregaux was taken over by Patrick Pruniaux (also CEO of Ulysse Nardin) two years ago, the product families are gaining fresh momentum. He and his teams have chosen Infinity as the theme for 2020, a symbol of resilience in this highly unusual year, as well as a token of convergence for the four lines revisited at the Geneva Watch Days. This is notably the case for the new Free Bridge and its limited series of 88 Free Bridge Infinity pieces. An aesthetic signature of the brand for more than 150 years and regularly redesigned, the famous arched bridge appears to float above the dial, itself open onto the movement which benefits from the latest technologies, such as the silicon escapement and the variable inertia balance. These innovative features improve its performance by reducing the influence of shocks or temperature differences. The visual effect is further enhanced by the domed box-type sapphire crystal. The Free Bridge also serves as a bridge between Haute Horlogerie and lovers of beautiful watches by making this collection more accessible. Girard-Perregaux has succeeded in combining practicality with pleasure, tradition with contemporary technical and aesthetic quality.
