ELECTRIFYING GIRARD-PERREGAUX

Post by koimaster » November 30th 2020, 7:20pm

Some people are staunchly anti-quartz, horological purists as they may call themselves. Dedicated purely to mechanical horology. This is not for those people. This is for people who appreciate watchmaking no matter source of power. Those who do not discriminate between quartz and mechanical movements. This is the story of a Girard-Perregaux movement that dominated the quartz market: the Girard-Perregaux Caliber 350.

People remember the Beta 21 and when Hamilton introduced the Electric 500 in 1957, the Girard-Perregaux Cal. 350 is an often-forgotten step in the development of quartz/electric watch movements. A movement that introduced key technological developments to the market.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
