Zegna presents recreated collection
May '10
Ermenegildo Zegna Limited Edition items presentation took place at the Ermenegildo Zegna boutique in Dubai Mall, on the 12th of May 2010.

The first woven fabric created by Ermenegildo Zegna in 1910, has been recreated for the Centennial year in 2010.

Ermenegildo Zegna and Girard-Perregaux
2010 marks the Centennial year of Ermenegildo Zegna, one of Italy's longest standing family driven enterprises. Four generations of the Zegna family have pioneered the company's activities, in the creation of a truly global brand with stores in eighty six countries throughout the world.

To celebrate this anniversary, the prestigious Italian brand is launching a limited edition watch, created by a manufacturer which shares its passion for excellence: Girard-Perregaux, one of the flagships of Swiss "Haute Horlogerie".

This watch is the fruit of a close relationship between two brands whose names are associated with the quest for perfection and global mastery of a distinct expertise. The relationship between the Zegna family and the Macaluso family, owner of the prestigious Swiss Manufacture, is founded on a common approach in which the quest for excellence and passion for fine craftsmanship prevail.

“As Angelo Zegna my Great Grandfather, was first in watches then in textiles, we felt that creating a Centennial Watch had a significant meaning.” Gildo Zegna CEO of the Ermenegildo Zegna Group said “I was first introduced to Gino Macaluso, the CEO and owner of Girard-Perregaux, through a shared friend. Immediately a spark of collaborative activity was born. We share a common ground as we both have an affinity for craftsmanship and for precision instruments, our brands have a family vision with long-standing heritage, and we are both obsessed by nothing but the finest quality.”

"It seemed spontaneously right to dedicate a special watch specifically designed and thought of for Ermenegildo Zegna on the occasion of their Centennial.” Gino Macaluso CEO of Girard-Perregaux said “Ermenegildo Zegna is one of the most prestigious artisan manufacturing companies in the world, with its 100-year history of passion, social engagement and commitment, it confirms Italy's typical values. Girard-Perregaux, with its 219 years of history in 'Haute Horlogerie', is proud to be able to participate in these important celebrations "

As a product of this expertise, the centenary watch accurately expresses the Ermenegildo Zegna style whilst maintaining the quintessential spirit of a Girard-Perregaux. It also pays homage to the group's origins, as Angelo Zegna the father of the founder Ermenegildo, was a watchmaker by trade. As an essential part of masculine elegance, it is an enduring piece which weaves a link between the players of the past, the present and the future – reverence for the founders, harmony with the fashion designer's latest creations, a testament to their beauty for generations to come.

It's round, pink gold case has an air of timeless elegance, perfectly designed according to the great tradition of Girard-Perregaux. It houses a mechanism equipped with an annual calendar, notable for its highly original display. The date appears in a counter with the numerals delicately reproduced on the dial. The month is indicated in a window at 5 o'clock. The mechanism automatically allows for months of different lengths and only needs to be corrected once a year at most.
