JeanRichard and Gully at the Opera Gallery

In September, the City of Lights hosted an original collaboration between JeanRichard and contemporary French artist Gully, who created a canvas for the watch brand as well as three 25-piece limited editions as part of the Graphiscope collection. The cream of Parisian society flocked to view them at the Opera Gallery, in the presence of Bruno Grande (JeanRichard’s CEO) and François-Henry Pinault (President of the Kering Group).


Girard-Perregaux and Nile Rodgers 

Grammy award winner, producer and co-founder of the group CHIC, and founder-president of the “We Are Family Foundation”, musician Nile Rodgers left his studios to visit La Chaux-de-Fonds to try out the art of watchmaking by assembling a number of pieces of a Girard-Perregaux watch mechanism himself. During the cocktail party which followed the “jamming session” with the Manufacture’s young watchmakers, Michele Sofisti (CEO) presented him with a limited edition version of the Shadow Hawk, adorned with the heart-shaped “We Are Family Foundation” logo.
