Girard-Perregaux Museum – After Burglary Status

Temporary Watchmaking Exhibition at Boucheron, 26 Place Vendôme, Paris 

 

Since opening in 1999, the Girard-Perregaux Museum has exhibited many important collections of watches from the past which have served to illustrate the history of one of the oldest and most prestigious Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufactures.

Currently undergoing renovation following a burglary, the Museum has organised a temporary exhibition in Paris, presenting part of its collection at Place Vendôme on the premises of jewellers Boucheron, a friend of the Brand and a partner in various projects. 

 

This is an opportunity to discover some of the Brand’s landmark creations, including the famous Tourbillon with three gold Bridges, once more in Paris, where it was awarded the gold medal at the Universal Exhibition in 1889 for its exceptional character. 

 

The Girard-Perregaux Museum will reopen its doors in La-Chaux-de-Fonds in 2011 to mark the Brand’s 220th anniversary. 

 

Open to the public from October 13-16, 2010
