Although the Girard Perregaux manufacture wasn’t officially established until 1856, its history dates back to 1791. It was that year that Jean Francois Bautte founded watch manufacturing company which later joined forces with Girard Perregaux and brought decade’s worth of experience to the table. The manufacture’s extensive history has been branded by renowned timepieces that combine a bold design with innovative technology. A key example of this is the legendary and prized Tourbillion with three gold bridges. Overhaul is recommended at the buyer’s expense. Long-term precision and regularity cannot be guaranteed. Size and weight may deviate from the manufacturer’s indication. All watches are hand-measured and weighed.
Conditions may not specify mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, dial, pendulum, separate base(s) or dome. Watches with water resistant cases may have been opened to inspect the movements; however no warranty is given that the watch(es) are currently water resistant. We do not warranty nor guarantee the authenticity of any individual component parts, including wheels, hands, crowns, crystals, screws, bracelets, leather bands, and strap hardware, as repairs, restoration, and other subsequent work may have resulted in the replacement of original parts.
Timepieces often contain extremely complex, fine, and rare mechanisms, as such, buyers should be aware that a general service, battery change, or further repair work, which is the sole responsibility of the buyer, may be necessary.
