Girard-Perregaux The Le Corbusier Trilogy
The Vintage 1945 case is meritorious indeed. Convex and curvy with distinctive lugs and a well behaved tucked-in crown. So far we have only featured it twice, both times its generous Art Deco form framed the brand's trio of arrow-headed bridges. The Girard-Perregaux Le Corbusier Collection are no less praiseworthy, with each presenting very different technical challenges to GP's craftsmen and women due to the nature of the materials used for their unique and quite frankly jaw-droppingly beautiful dials. This collection is best presented, not by description, but through images released by the brand.
Three will be produced each a tribute to Le Corbusier, a lifelong vanguard of design and architecture. A mother-of-pearl model, the Vintage 1945 le Corbusier La Chaux-de-Fonds, which takes seven days to meticulously handwork the slivers of the material to form the pattern and which is presented in an 18 carat pink gold case .....
The Vintage 1945 Le Corbusier Marseille, with a highly unusual concrete dial and presented in a stainless steel case ....
And the Vintage 1945 Le Corbusier Paris featuring a hand engraved metal dial, presented in a stainless steel case and which features the iconic "cowhide" strap.
Each model in the Girard-Perregaux Le Corbusier Trilogy will be powered by the GP 3300-0078 movement and each will be reassuringly limited to an ultra-exclusive 5 pieces per edition.
