Patrick Pruniaux, CEO of Girard-Perregaux, has stated: “We are delighted to partner with Aston Martin, entrusting their team with arguably our most iconic timepiece, offering a new perspective on haute horlogerie.

Marek Reichman, Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin, has added: “The biggest challenge we faced with designing this new watch was scale, as you can imagine. We had to consider lines and proportions on a much smaller scale than we are used to in automotive design. That said, a good design is a good design, be it a watch or a car, and the principles remain the same. I am delighted with the finished watch and congratulate everyone who worked on this project, as this collaboration has produced a watch of great beauty.“.
