Girard-Perregaux for Bol d’Or Mirabaud

Patience, talent, craftsmanship, all these qualities associated with Haute Horlogerie, which Girard-Perregaux is very well known for, are very similar to those needed in various nautical activities.

     

Girard-Perregaux is proud to enter into a partnership with the Societe Nautique de Genève (SNG) for the famous international yachting event: the Bol d’Or. Having been involved into yachting for many years now, Girard-Perregaux shares its core values with the Bol d’Or Mirabaud in this long term partnership:

– A major motivation to invest in R&D, which gives its products all their uniqueness and personality

– The aptitude and will to face new challenges, never being satisfied with the results achieved and always willing to progress

– A true team spirit, result of the diversity of competences and addition of know- how allowing to steadily increase the quality of the products

– A strong will to enter a competition in which all available resources have been invested, be they technical, strategic or human.

To celebrate this 69th edition of the Bol d’Or Mirabaud, Girard-Perregaux dedicates a unique sportive and nautical watch: the Sea Hawk Pro 1000m – Bol d’Or Mirabaud issued in a strictly limited edition of 69 pieces.

Girard-Perregaux is the “Presenting Sponsor” of the 69th edition of the Bol d’Or Mirabaud yachting race.

The Bol d’Or Mirabaud is the largest regatta in Europe on a closed basin. It is one of the major and most prestigious classics on the international racing calendar.

It consists of a race from Geneva to Le Bouveret and back, ie. once around the whole Geneva lake. The record is being hold by P.M. Leuenberger’s Triga IV in 5h01’51’ since 1994. For the 2006 edition, over 600 participants took part in the race.

The Bol d’Or Mirabaud 2007, presented by Girard-Perregaux, will be a very special event, as much for the competitors as for their guests and spectators.
