The new Girard-Perregaux 1966 Small Seconds and Date Watch has a timeless appeal just like all models from the 1966 collection. If you prefer classic elegance, then this GP novelty could be a perfect choice for you.
This watch features clean and, at the same time, strict lines. It is housed in a round pink gold case with the diameter of 41mm. The case is shielded with anti-reflective sapphire crystals and it is constructed to provide water resistance up to 30 meters (circa 100 feet). Its gorgeous case incorporates a diamond-polished sloping bezel which enhances its finesse.
Underneath the slightly spherical sapphire glass lies either a silver opaline dial (the referent number is 49543-52-131-BKBA) or a cognac-colored dial (the referent number is 49543-52-B31-BK6A). Each of these two dials is guilloché with a sunray pattern.
The dial comprises hour markers, leaf-shaped hour and minute hands, and the date aperture which is situated at the 3 o’clock position. On the opposite side, at the 9 o’clock position, there is a small seconds sub-dial. Further, the applied hour markers which edge the dial have faceted ends to mark the slope. Also, the small second counter has the additional window with the diamond effect finish which gives it depth.
Girard-Perregaux 1966 Small Seconds and Date is powered with the Caliber GP01890-0003 mechanical movement. The self-winding movement is assembled on the 28 jewels, winds with the pink gold rotor and provides no less than 54 hours of power reserve when fully charged. The impeccable mechanism oscillates at the rapid frequency of 28,800 beats per hour (4 Hz).
Thanks to the see-through case back of the watch, it is possible to observe the work of the mechanical self-winding movement which is entirely made and assembled in R&D’s workshops.
For the great feel on the wrist, Girard-Perregaux designers choose to attach the new watch to either black or brown alligator strap with a folding buckle in pink gold.
The meticulous and subtle finishing of the watch draws on all the specialist expertise of the Girard-Perregaux’s watchmakers and craftsmen. Since 1791, La Chaux-de-Fonds-based manufacturer has been making watch history. Last year, the Swiss watchmaker launched some quite interesting models, such as Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges in Pink Gold, Vintage 1945 XXL Chronograph, as well as an entirely new line of sport watches which includes three models of Sea Hawk Diver and two versions of Chrono Hawk model.
