Ruari O'Connor wears Girard-Perregaux to SAG Awards
Actor Ruari O'Connor, nominated alongsid his "The Morning Show" cast for Ensemble in a Drama Series, wears the Girard-Perregaux Free Bridge in steel on the occasion of the 2022 Screen Actors Guild Awards
The Free Bridge and its close sibling, the Free Bridge Infinity Edition, are endowed with a distinctive arrow-shaped Neo that spans the base of the mainplate – like suspended in time - the shape of which upholds the Maison’s iconic arrow-shaped bridge design, but simultaneously reinterprets the contemporary structures often seen in architecture.
THE CALIBRE GP01800
The master watchmakers in La Chaux-de-Fonds have reinterpreted the tried and tested GP01800 in-house calibre, adding a sizeable dose of cutting-edge technology. Girard-Perregaux has used silicon to make the escapement and parts of the balance wheel. While silicon is used by some companies, it remains rare despite its many advantages. It is not liable to corrosion, is unaffected by changing temperature, lightweight and less susceptible to magnetic fields. These attributes confer an array of user-benefits. For example, where some parts made of conventional materials can behave differently at various temperatures, silicon components remain unaffected, delivering consistent timekeeping. In addition, silicon’s low coefficient of friction mitigates both wear and energy consumption.
