Girard Perregaux was founded in 1852 by Constantin Othenin Girard. First the company was named Girard & Cie. After two years the founder was married to Marie Perregaux, where the name Girard Perregaux comes from. 1957 GP introduced the first Gyromatic movement. At that time the Gyromatic movements were one of the best and precise automatic movements on the market. 1966 GP came up with the first High-Frequency movement, providing 36000 beats per hour.
