    Girard-Perregaux, was proud to honor U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team 
    gold medalist Alex Morgan and celebrate her accomplishments during 
    Fashion’s Night Out in New York City. Morgan helped lead  the U.S. Women’s 
    National Soccer Team to a gold medal at the London Summer Olympics with 
    three  goals and team-high four assists. 

    Guests including Olympians Tim Morehouse, Dagmara Wozniak and Emily Hughes 
    as well as Tom Murro and other personalities attended the celebration and enjoyed 
    a selection of rose and white gold Girard-Perregaux timepieces, Louis Latour 
    wines, “gold inspired” food by Tealicious with Chef Julian Medina and gold   

     “We are very happy to honor Alex Morgan in her accomplishments during the 
     games these past months”, said Sowind President of Americas (Girard-Perregaux 
     and JeanRichard) Michael Margolis. “Her work and dedication on and off the 
     field are an inspiration to us all.  Her last second goal against Canada still gives me,   
     and many soccer fans, the goosebumps.”

     “It was a great honor to represent the United States in these games and bringing 
     the gold medal back home was an amazing feeling”, said Morgan. “I am very  
     appreciative of Girard-Perregaux’s friendship. I love the elegance and attention 
     to detail they apply to  every single one of their timepieces and I had a really 
     great time celebrating Fashion’s Night Out and our Olympic achievements at their 
     beautiful boutique.”

    Morgan, a fan of the brand and watches, was seen wearing a Girard-Perregaux 
    Cat’s Eye watch.  The timepiece proves that, just like her intricate soccer 
    techniques, feminine shapes lend themselves wonderfully to complicated 
    movements. The Cat’s Eye Small Second features a  rose gold case and bezel 
    set with diamonds and a GP manufacture automatic movement. 
    The small second is discretely underlined at 9 o’clock while the date indicator 
    remains at 3 o’clock.
