Girard-Perregaux, the top Swiss watchmaker, has launched the ‘1957’ watch. Inspired by the brand’s Gyromatic collection from the 1960s, this 40mm stainless steel watch celebrates its 225th anniversary with a luxurious vintage style.
   In the 1960s, it was a new era of life and a brilliant era that shined in the world. Many new artistic models were formed during this period: pop art, rock music, etc. were born at this time, and this concept also affected the creation of watches. Girard-Perregaux launched the revolutionary ‘Gyromatic’ series in 1957, which established an important milestone in the development of automatic watches. This is also a new model developed to improve the accuracy of timekeeping. It has evolved the clock The journey is profound. The Gyromatic self-winding mechanism in that year’s watch movement numbered Cal.19, the earliest vibration frequency was 18000, and later increased to 21600. The Girard-Perregaux self-winding mechanism has also been changed to a one-way automatic winding, which can more easily, efficiently and reliably transfer energy, which has opened a new era for the reduction of the size of automatic mechanical watches.
   The subtle design of ‘Gyromatic’ is used in many Girard Perregaux watches, including the ‘Gyromatic HF (High Frequency)’ self-winding watch, which is the F1 formula watch in the watch industry, and has made mechanical watch design. He has made great contributions and obtained many patents for the brand over the years. In 1966, the GP Girard-Perregaux was awarded the ‘German Observatory Centennial Award’ by the Neuchatel Observatory in Switzerland in recognition of GP Girard-Perregaux’s outstanding achievements. The following year, up to 73% of all scoring certifications were also obtained by GP Girard Perregaux High Frequency Watches, affirming GP Girard Perregaux’s contribution in the field of mechanical timepiece technology.

   To commemorate this glorious time, the brand once again launched this classic watch to commemorate the 225th anniversary of the GP Girard Perregaux. The ‘1957’ watch is equipped with crystal mirror glass, vintage champagne-colored surface, sharp-sword-shaped hands coated with luminous materials, and three-dimensional trapezoidal indexes, all inheriting the traditional craftsmanship of Girard-Perregaux.

   The surface of the stainless steel case is polished, and both sides are sanded. The sapphire crystal sets off the retro dial. The transparent back cover of ‘1957’ shows the fine design of the GP03300 movement. The movement has undergone many traditional processes of the 1970s, such as Geneva ripples and circular patterns on the main board and pendulum. In the production of ultra-thin movements, the gear thickness is lighter and thinner, and the gear axis is shorter. The components of all movements are more refined, making assembly and tuning more difficult. The essence of professional skills for more than two centuries is in the GP03300 movement. The craftsmanship of each watch is flawless, with the brand’s traditional aesthetics dating back to 1791.
