|1||Girard-Perregaux LED, 1976.|
The basic idea for this watch originated from Mr. Friedrich, who was the owner of Girard Perregaux at the time. The designer was Mr. Schöpfer, an independent creator. Three different editions of this beautiful watch exist: steel, gold-plated and makrolon. It was the first time that makrolon was used in a watch.
