The Girard Perregaux 1966 CHÂTEAU LATOUR EDITION Watch is a masterpiece that brings together the worlds of fine wine and horology. This elegant timepiece is more than just a watch; it’s a celebration of centuries of history, blending the unique terroir of Bordeaux’s Château Latour with the precision craftsmanship of Girard-Perregaux.
With a heritage dating back to 1791, Girard-Perregaux has a long history of horological excellence, marked by achievements like winning the chronometry prize at the Neuchatel Observatory in 1867. Château Latour, founded in 1331, shares a similar commitment to excellence, being one of viniculture’s five ‘Premiers Crus Classes’ from the Médoc region.
The collaboration between these two esteemed entities underscores their shared narratives of excellence, history, and a deep connection to their origins. The Girard Perregaux 1966 Château Latour Edition Watch features dials crafted from pebbles sourced from the Château Latour vineyard, reflecting the importance of terroir in both wine and watchmaking. Each dial undergoes 30 hours of meticulous work, resulting in a unique piece of art.
This limited-edition timepiece features a pink-gold case, slender indices, golden leaf-shaped hands, and a simple date display. The sapphire-crystal caseback reveals the self-winding Caliber GP03300 movement, exquisitely finished with locally sourced components.
With only 18 numbered pieces available, the Girard Perregaux 1966 Château Latour Edition Watch is an exclusive collector’s item, reserved for private guests of the Château Latour estate and the Villa Girard-Perregaux in La Chaux-de-Fonds. It’s a true masterpiece that combines the artistry of watchmaking and winemaking. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of this exceptional collaboration, priced at $37,700.
