Girard Perregaux (2021) 2021
In 2021, Girard Perregaux (GP) held a private event during which Diaa Allam performed a live canvas painting of the brand’s “La Esmeralda” watch drawn in his signature style of Arabic Calligraphy. La Esmeralda is the famous prizewinning pocket watch made for the ‘Exposition Universelle’ in 1889. This legendary pocket watch blended extraordinary precision with several artistic crafts. As the Manufacture celebrates its 230th anniversary, it has revisited its iconic timepiece of 1889 and created a wristwatch that both celebrates The Maison’s heritage and showcases its amassed and considerable know-how.
