Escapement LM Watch of the Year — Girard Perregaux

0

The Girard-Perregaux Escape­ment LM was the win­ner of the title “Watch of the Year 2013” and was spon­sored by the online mag­a­zine called Time­Zone. It is not the first time that this pre­cious time­piece earns the hon­ors of glory.

New suc­cess for the Con­stant Girard-Perregaux Escapa­ment LM lux­ury watch was after win­ning the most reli­able indus­try award watch of the year 2013. Now for this model, whose rev­o­lu­tion­ary move­ment inau­gu­rated an era pio­neer, was awarded the title of Watch of the Year 2013  in the online com­mu­nity of TimeZone.

The result con­firms the qual­i­ties of the extra­or­di­nary prod­uct of the house of Chaux-de-Fonds, whose share price touches 116 thou­sand euro. This recog­ni­tion is the lat­est in a suc­cess­ful series, which began its pre­sen­ta­tion in April last year, which also includes:

- 2 awards at the SIAR

–Crit­ics Award

⁻Con­cept Watch

–Timesquare in China

- Mon­tres Pas­sion in Switzerland

- Spi­ral Mag­a­zine in Hong Kong

The Con­stant Escape­ment is a real tech­ni­cal rev­o­lu­tion that has amazed experts when they were pre­sented the pro­to­type of this inno­v­a­tive mech­a­nism, which has been enshrined in the move­ments that ani­mate the new mod­els of the col­lec­tion of lux­ury watches Girard-Perregaux.

Based on the rev­o­lu­tion­ary pro­to­type pre­sented in 2008, it took five years of research and devel­op­ment to per­fect the move­ment. The watch­mak­ing his­tory will be for­ever marked by this sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone in the field of chronom­e­try, drew with superb bal­ance and the sin­gu­lar­ity of the mechanism.

A rev­o­lu­tion­ary con­cept embod­ied in the “holy grail” of watch­mak­ing, the Con­stant Force. A break­through in the field of time mea­sure­ment with a new archi­tec­ture and a new design of the escape­ment was with 3 dif­fer­ent patents.

Unprece­dented accu­racy: a vic­tory over the loss of power in the tra­di­tional mechan­i­cal watches, through the con­stant sup­ply of power to the oscil­la­tor in order to main­tain a con­stant ampli­tude and rhythm.

The advanced mate­ri­als com­bine advanced tech­nol­ogy. The prod­uct uses a rib­bon of sil­i­con thick­ness of 14 microns, strate­gic com­po­nent 6 times thin­ner than a human hair. The inno­v­a­tive dou­ble bar­rel has a spring whose total length is 3 meters. Spec­tac­u­lar design inspired by the avant-garde tra­di­tion of Girard-Perregaux.
