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
–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.
