Armelle Lagrange and Maïa Grangier
Once again this year, Girard-Perregaux had the pleasure of taking to the road alongside exceptional women in the 2017 edition of the Rallye des Caprices.
An official partnership which has for three consecutive years seen the Manufacture based in La Chaux-de-Fonds associate with this race that is unique in Switzerland, featuring all-women teams aboard collector’s cars.
Starting out from Geneva, on September 19th, the 25 collector’s cars competing in this demanding race wound their way along a Swiss roads that took in Verbier, Crans-Montana and Gstaad. A feminine team was representing Girard-Perregaux, and for this edition, a legendary car built in a 200-piece worldwide limited edition proudly sported a livery in the brand colours: a 1973 lightweight Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7.
The final leg of this “girls on the road” journey took them to the Bonmont Golf Club in Chéserex on September 22nd. The race organisers rewarded the women’s teams having displayed the greatest regularity throughout the race.
Regularity is a quality definitely shared by Girard-Perregaux and the watch brand was delighted to have the privilege of rewarding the winning driver/co-driver team Armelle Lagrange & Maïa Grangier with two Laureato ladies’ watches. They each received a Laureato 34 mm model, attired for the occasion with a strap featuring the Rallye des Caprices shade of blue.
