On the heels of Girard-Perregaux’s 225th anniversary in 2016, the brand expands the Laureato collection at SIHH 2017 by catering to women’s wrists with the release of the surprising Laureato 34 and mid-sized 38 mm models.
Please join our Quill & Pad round table discussion, where we talk about what we did and didn’t like at the 2017 SIHH (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie). And get ready for a cornucopia of beautiful photos and colorful opinions!
In honor of the upcoming 27th edition of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), which opens its doors on January 16, 2017, we present you with an overview of 35 new models that have already been revealed – at least electronically.
The Quill & Pad panel reflects on watchmaking’s biggest night: the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, often described as the Oscars of watchmaking. In this segment, we chat about what we liked and what we didn’t like, which watches won and why we think they did.
We also express a bit of dismay at times.
Our panel members choose their winners in the Tourbillon category of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie between the Ulysse Nardin Executive Skeleton Tourbillon, Bovet 1822’s Ottantasei Flying Tourbillon, Girard-Perregaux’s La Esmeralda Tourbillon, Louis Moinet’s Sideralis Evo, the Rudis Sylva RS 16 Harmonious Oscillator, and the De Bethune DB28T Kind of Blue Tourbillon.
Welcome to the 2016 edition of Quill & Pad’s Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève predictions in which the team picks favorites and explains why. The pre-selected finalists are: Ulysse Nardin Skeleton Tourbillon Pearl, Bulgari Serpenti Incantati Tourbillon Lumière, Christophe Claret Marguerite, Girard-Perregaux Cat’s Eye Tourbillon with Gold Bridge, Louis Vuitton Tambour Color Blossom Spin Time, and Ludovic Ballouard Upside Down Art Deco.
Girard-Perregaux’s Neo-Tourbillon with Three Bridges is a relatively profound re-issue of an old favorite. While it retains the original codes and architecture of Constant Girard’s oeuvre, the major changes that have occurred have to do with the shape of the bridges, the crystal, and the completely redesigned caliber.

But without further ado, here are the brands and watches that went home with a well-deserved trophy.
