Girard-Perregaux Watch Plot In “The Unusuals” Keeps Timepiece Fans Tuned In

A pastime enjoyed by many luxury watch fans is keeping up with their favorite timepieces on the silver screen and television. Be it Tom Selleck’s reliance on the Rolex GMT-Master as Magnum PI, Rambo’s preference for Panerai, or (modern) James Bond never being without his Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m, these bits of horological trivia are layers of interest nearly as entertaining as the shows themselves!

The Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Petite Second watch got its own story sideline in ABC’s “The Unusuals” drama. During a recent episode, the character of Detective Jason Walsh lends his Girard-Perregaux to his financially strapped girlfriend; unfortunately, while at a pawnshop to trade some jewelry for cash, she is accosted by robbers who make off with the cherished watch.  Girard-Perregaux’s Vintage 1945 collection numbers some of the most elegant and finely crafted rectangular timepieces on earth, a fact these fictional thugs were obviously well aware of!

I’m sure that this intriguing little plot twist was keenly appreciated by viewers of The Unusuals who own Girard-Perregaux and other similarly prestigious Swiss watches. It should help keep them stuck to their plasma screens to see what happens through the season.
