On its launch in 1976, the unique Girard-Perregaux Casquette watch rethought conventional aesthetics with a futuristic LED show that supplied an avant-garde antidote to the prevalent analogue dial. Solely 8,200 examples had been remodeled a two-year manufacturing interval, making it in style with watch collectors, who later gave it its Casquette nickname.
Girard-Perregaux has now formalised the moniker and reintroduced the cult timekeeper in a stronger, extra practical iteration – Girard-Perregaux Casquette 2.0, which we first hailed on its 2022 launch and have now awarded the title Finest Time Traveller within the Wallpaper* Design Awards 2023. Crafted from ceramic and titanium, its gentle, scratch-resistant kind incorporates a quartz motion imbued with new options, together with a secret ingredient that lets the wearer select a big or sentimental date that may then be displayed at a particular time every day.
