Girard-Perregaux produced co-branded watches with Ferrari from 1994 through 2004.

Overview

Girard-Perregaux Chronograph Tribute to Enzo Ferrari Tourbillon

In 1994, Ferrari struck a new deal with Girard-Perregaux to produce high-end co-branded watches. Most of these featured both names on the dial, with Girard-Perregaux or Ferrari at 6 or 12, but some featured only one or the other brand on the dial.

One of the first models was the popular Ref. 8020 chronograph, which usually featured the prancing horse at 12:00 along with a three-register chronograph display with date. Later models included a perpetual calendar chronograph, rattrapante, and small-seconds Ref. 8030. In the 2000s, Girard-Perregaux experimented with titanium cases, carbon fibre dials, and a world time chronograph. Particularly unusual models include the Laureato F 2004 with its octagonal bezel, the tonneau-cased Ferrari 250 GTO model, and the Tribute to Enzo Ferrari Tourbillon.
