26 place Vendôme…
Since it was opened in 1999, the Girard-Perregaux Museum in La Chaux-de-Fonds has exhibited major collections of the prestigious Swiss manufacture’s antique watches and historical documents. Now, while the museum is being renovated, Girard-Perregaux has organized a temporary exhibition at the House of Boucheron (26 place Vendôme – 75001 Paris). Boucheron and Girard-Perregaux have close ties and have collaboratd on a number of projects over the years, so it seems natural that GP is making a 50 piece limited edition watch in hommage to Boucheron. In addition to the moon-phase subdial notated with “BOUCHERON”, GP has also replaced the “Swiss Made” marking on the bottom of the dial with “26 Place Vendome” — the address of the prestigous Parisian jeweler.
Girard Perregaux Hommage a Boucheron
Limited edition of 50 pieces
41mm white or pink gold case, moon phase, automatic movement GP03300-45, black alligator strap
I only wonder…will Maximillian Busser’s JWLRYMACHINE — another high profile horological collaboration with Boucheron — steal the show at 26 Place Vendome?
