Since its creation, the models of Girard-Perregaux’s 1966 collection have had a timeless appeal. This year, the magic continues with the latestwatch featuringa date and a small seconddisplay at 9 o’clock. Behind its elegant simplicity lies a well thought-out aesthetic and a tried and tested mechanism.
Theinspiration is classic yet expressive of its belonging to the modern world. With its pure lines, its eleganceis revealed in the attention to detail. The meticulous and subtle finishing draws on all the specialist expertise of the brand’s watchmakers and craftsmen.
The aesthetic is softened by the case, curved dial and a slightly spherical sapphire glass. The pink gold 41mm-diametercase boasts a diamond-polished sloping bezel which enhances its finesse. The applied hourmarkers which hem the dial have faceted ends to mark the slope. Under the foliate hands, the small second adopts a diamond-cut lattice which gives it depth, while the date sits opposite it at 3 o’clock.
The Girard-Perregaux 1966 Small Secondand Date watch is available in two versions of the dial, one in silvered opaline and the other in cognacwith the sheen of a sun-brushed finish.
The case’s sapphireglass on the case back opens onto the automaticmechanicalcaliberGP01890-0003, designed in the Manufacture’s R&D department, entirely made and assembled in its workshops. With its 54hours power reserve, it winds itself with the help of its pink gold rotor.
