Oct 05, 2010
Girard-Perregaux offers its support to the charity organization “MILK (Mainly I Love Kids) ” aimed at reaching out and helping disadvantaged children and young people. The company will auction its special edition 1966 Chronograph during a gala dinner to be held in Singapore. The timepiece has been specially designed for the MILK auction.

The unique Girard-Perregaux 1966 Chronograph watch for MILK is animated by the brand’s column-wheel chronograph movement. For the first time, the model boasts a skeleton dial, a 40mm pink gold case and a case-back personalized with the signature of Gino Macaluso, the Manufacture’s Chairman and President.

The Girard-Perregaux watch offers technical sophistication and authentic design. The design of the case is synonymous to timeless elegance, reflecting the well-maintained watchmaking tradition of Girard-Perregaux round watches. The harmoniously proportioned case features smooth curves and extended lugs to guarantee utmost comfort of wearing.

The skeleton dial is characterized by perfect readability. It is framed by the seconds and railway-style tachymeter scales. It allows to admire the complicated nature of the movement beating inside. The inner life of the watch is also revealed via its transparent case-back. For most precise reading, there is a long blued steel chronograph seconds hand in the center. The dial is also completed with leaf-shaped hands and applied hour markers and Arabic numerals.

The heart of the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Chronograph watch for MILK, the column-wheel chronograph movement, is constructed from 304 components.
