The Best Thing I Saw in Basel ....

Was the Constant Escapement from Girard-Perregaux!
So what does EIGHT years of research and development give you?  The Constant Escapement, which in turn gives you a constant rate, and a constant amplitude.

Don't believe me?  Check it out -

Of course I realize that my humble "snaps" do not do this amazing watch justice - and it truly is something that you have to see in person to have the pleasant experience of your jaw dropping and hitting the floor ; )

Patek, Blancpain and Breguet make some nice watches of course - but this is far and away BEST IN SHOW!

Congratulations Girard-Perregaux, and welcome back to BaselWorld!
