Girard-Perregaux relies on being a manufacturer of movements and watches and a manufacturer of cases and bands. They bring together some tens of different components: watchmakers, engineers, movement decorators, polishers, etc. This global approach, founded on the traditional know-how of the watch-making craftsmanship, allows them to create and direct the high-quality watches and movements from the assembly stages all the way to the final encasement.
The Girard-Perregaux Manufacture designs and develops its own movements:
- a large collection of high-end watch making movements, of which the Tourbillon with three gold bridges is the emblematic piece.
- a complete range of mechanical movements at automatic reassembly (GP2700, GP3200, GP3300, GP4500), that can fit all the types of watches, all by serving as the base for the module constructions of complicated mechanisms.
- Quartz movements

Famous quotes containing the word manufacture:
“The profession of magician, is one of the most perilous and arduous specialisations of the imagination. On the one hand there is the hostility of God and the police to be guarded against; on the other it is as difficult as music, as deep as poetry, as ingenious as stage-craft, as nervous as the manufacture of high explosives, and as delicate as the trade in narcotics.”
—William Bolitho (18901930)
“The great cry that rises from all our manufacturing cities, louder than the furnace blast, is all in very deed for thisthat we manufacture everything there except men.”
—John Ruskin (18191900)
“Yes, thats what I needed. Living flesh from humans for my experiments. What difference did it make if a few people had to die? Their flesh taught me how to manufacture arms, legs, faces that are human. Ill make a crippled world whole again.”
—Robert Tusker, and Michael Curtiz. Wells (Preston Foster)
