Girard Perregaux GP03300 movement
   The movement design is the most tedious and complex task for a watchmaker. It may take several years from the initial sketch to the final first products.
   High-end finishing is an essential basic requirement in the manufacture of the movement. After the part is processed and tested, it is necessary to carry out specific modification operations next. At Girard Perregaux, in particular the main splint and bridge are modified in the purest tradition, even though they may not be visible. These modifications prove the brand’s expertise in the field of ‘high-end watches’.
   Girard-Perregaux watches are widely recognized for their extreme precision. To do this, technology and experience are indispensable. This is a concept of pursuit of perfection, and the GP03300 movement is a true portrayal of this concept.

   The Girard-Perregaux 1966 series watches use elegant and unique cases, equipped with automatic winding movement, set the achievements of the brand’s innovation, can be called a gift to that era. In 1966, Girard-Perregaux released its first high-frequency movement, the Gyromatic HF movement with a balance wheel frequency of 36,000 times per hour.
   The first works were immediately sent to the Neuchâtel Observatory in Switzerland for testing, and the results were unquestionable — all Girard-Perregaux’s first works passed the test and won the observatory certificate. The watches of other brands that passed this test before are not mass-produced products, but are specially prepared for the test.
   The Neuchâtel State Council decided in 1966 to award Girard-Perregaux with the ‘Hundred Years Observatory Award’ in recognition of the brand’s outstanding achievements in research and development. In 1967, Girard-Perregaux received 662 certifications, accounting for 73% of all certifications issued by the Neuchâtel Observatory (Switzerland) for the classic watch category.
