Girard-Perregaux Revives 1966 Swiss Watch Elegance
Girard-Perregaux’s revival of its Swiss watch elegance has been unveiled with its latest watch sensation created on the lines of its 1966 watch line for ladies. The latest jewelry watch piece celebrates the bejeweled 1966 38-mm jewelry watch, famed for its authentic and powerful mechanical movement embellished with a choice of 807 odd diamonds.
The pink-gold creation constitutes the Girard-Perregaux hallmark with its automatic GP3200 winding movement. The sapphire crystal case-back combines creativity to practical elegance. With a power reserve of 42 hours, the 1966 pink variant is definitely a must for watch lovers!
The dazzling 1966 collection that was originally launched in 2006 is a tribute to an era when hallmarked watch brands such as Girard-Perregaux lavished on their creativity quotient in watch designs, technical know-how and performance precision.
A characteristic of the 1966 line rests on the workmanship of creating watch movement specialized for its automatic winding technique and ultra-thin cases that expressed the in-house ingenuity of Girard-Perregaux work domains.
Girard-Perregaux’s 1966 white gold chronograph model tagged close to $ 30,000 is at best a good possession for its bejeweled 36 power reserve. With an in-built column wheel chronograph, the white gold version is provided with stop seconds and minutes counter. The Girard-Perregaux 3300-0066mechanical movement with its automatic winding finds its mettle in the power reserve that could last for more than 46 hours as claimed by technical watch connoisseurs.
The chrono watch bears Geneva striped bridges with a noticeable gold rotor which is visible via its sapphire display back. Because of its modular frame, the movement of the chronograph remains hidden from view and lodged within the drive train components. The movement caliber is studded with around 38 jewels and definitely worth its mettle! The alligator-skin watch strap is set with a gem-studded ardillon buckle adding nostalgia to the piece.
The 2010 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva showcased the 1966 Chronograph model with its white gold case and blue dial reference which showed up in good stead at the SIHH 2011 too!
