With such a suavely elegant profile and stylish good looks, it’s no surprise that women gravitate strongly to the Girard-Perregaux Richeville Lady watch collection. Any time I’ve had the opportunity to spend time with our clients, working patiently through the various fine brands, these Girard-Perregaux timepieces invariably evoke a very positive response. Often, ladies want to try these on, and not infrequently – they don’t want to take them off!
Great watch designs like the Girard-Perregaux Richeville Lady appeal on a visceral level – you don’t sit down with pen and paper, add up the various features and intellectually analyze why you are drawn to them. But, were I to engage in such a silly exercise, I’d say the lovely Art Deco-era tonneau form is a big part of the subliminal attraction; the distinctive elongation of the lugs is ideal for the setting of diamonds, and it flatters the feminine wrist perfectly. What is more, this graceful shape compliments casual and formal modes of attire with equal panache.
Within the basic framework, too, there is a great abundance of tempting choices. 18K gold or stainless steel on straps or bracelet, optional round brilliant diamonds, and dials in a broad array of colors that range from classic Roman numerals to dreamy and playful Arabic figures enable each woman to choose the perfect expression of this superbly versatile and attractive Girard-Perregaux timepiece.
