Uehara Hiromi Won The Second Girard Perregaux François Perregaux Award

On December 17, 2015, Japanese pianist Hiromi Uehara won the second Girard Perregaux François Perregaux Award, and the brand CEO Antonio Calce awarded it. In addition, Uehara Hiromi also received a specially designed cat-eye watch.
   Girard Perregaux CEO Antonio Calce said at the awards ceremony: ‘We are pleased to present this award to pianist Hiromi Uehara. Uehara Hiroki is talented, and her music retains a tradition of creativity, vitality and innovation, but also Can successfully reach our contemporaries and even future generations of listeners. ‘
   François Perregaux (1834-1877), a member of the Girard-Perregaux family, was the first Swiss watchmaker to set foot on Japanese soil. He has always followed the Swiss watchmaking tradition while courageously pursuing new challenges. In tribute to his pioneering spirit, Girard Perregaux created the François Perregaux Award.
   Since its establishment in 1791, under the guidance of pioneering spirit, Girard Perregaux has successfully developed a number of major innovations in the field of fine watchmaking. Winners who embody this spirit will also receive a unique timepiece. Last year, Eiji Kawashima won the first Girard Perregaux François Perregaux Award as a goalkeeper in Japan.
   Uehara Hiromi performs an incredible poetic performance with both hands, comparable to fine watchmaking art. Her long-lasting passion for music and her courage to face challenges are reminiscent of François Perregaux’s unremitting efforts to promote Swiss watchmaking in Japan. Both geniuses are guided by tenacity, Girard Perregaux presents awards to Guangyuan Guangmei in celebration of the celebration.
