About Girard Perregaux

There is no doubt that you will pronounce the name incorrectly, but what you really want to see is the look on your parents' faces when you whip out your first Girard-Perregaux watch. Both of your parents are watch connoisseurs who have a glass cabinet full of authentic Swiss watches. But for a super-luxurious piece of Swiss horology, your gifts of Girard-Perregaux timepieces will leave them slack-jawed. For your mother, you want the Girard-Perregaux 1945 Lady. This vintage, self-winding, mechanical watch has a steel frame inspired by the Art Deco movement and bordered by two rows of diamonds. For your father, only a Girard-Perregaux Laureato watch will do. The Laureato has a titanium body and luminous carbon fiber dials. You can find both the Lady and the Laureato among the wide selection of premium wristwatches offered by reputable sellers on eBay. And while picking out your parents' wedding anniversary gifts, you may be tempted to treat yourself to a Girard-Perregaux watch, too. Who would blame you for giving in to such priceless temptation?
