1966 East to West

The concept of duality

Part of the charm of the 1966 East to West is the repeated juxtaposition of dissimilar entities. The 1966 is a classical timepiece, however, this DRx version, with its black DLC sandblasted case, onyx dial and DRx branding looks incredibly contemporary. Sometimes in life we observe differences that collectively deliver something incredible, something we term 'the concept of duality.' Traditional and modern. Simplicity and sophistication. And, most pertinently, East meets West.

The Calibre GP03300

The Calibre GP03300

In keeping with its longstanding tradition, Manufacture Girard-Perregaux has equipped this model with a tried and tested mechanical movement, Calibre GP3300, whose ultimate refinement reveals no less than five different finishes. The plate and bridges are meticulously stretched, bevelled, engraved, circular-grained and adorned with Côtes de Genève. The blued steel screws and gilded engravers are revealed through its sapphire crystal back.
