Girard-Perregaux Debuts an Improved Neo Constant Escapement for Only Watch 2023


Girard-Perregaux has been a loyal supporter of Only Watch since 2007. For the biennial charity auction’s return this year, the Maison will offer the Neo Constant Escapement Only Watch Edition.

Modeled from Girard-Perregaux’s GPHG Aiguille D’Or award-winning Constant Escapement L.M. from 2013, the Only Watch edition serves as an improved iteration with new technical and aesthetic advancements. Attired in a 45mm, matte-finished, pink gold case the timepiece houses a symmetrical yet unconventional dial that showcases its inner workings.

Its caseback also boasts a practically identical design, with the front setting itself apart with an embedded golden track on the flange, skeletonized dauphine handset, power reserve indicator, black nickel-treated, and lume-filled indexes. Operating the timekeeper is an in-house GP09200-2196, a hand-winding mechanical movement providing up to 3 meters of water resistance, and a 7-day power reserve.

The one-off timepiece will be presented at Only Watch in Geneva coming November 5. It’s estimated to sell for 140,000 – 200,000 CHF (approximately $156,470 – $223,529 USD) and more information can be discovered at its designated webpage over at Only Watch’s official website.

Elsewhere in watches, Awake continues its Mission to Earth with a NASA-themed time-teller.
