Girard-Perregauxs iconic 1966 collection, introduced in 2006, has been joined by a new timepiece the 1966 Chronograph watch. The timepieces from the collection stand out due to their subtle elegance and perfect craftsmanship.

The new Girard-Perregaux watch has inherited the classic spirit of its predecessors in both its style and functionality.

The case of the watch, 40 mm in diameter, is crafted from pink or white gold. The thoroughly fashioned curvature and lugs provide perfect comfort on the wrist. The precious material reveals meticulous finishing.

The 1966 Chronograph watch is a traditional chronograph presented via a 30-minute counter and a central seconds hand. The chronograph function is really easy-to-read on the perfectly balanced dial. The edge of the dial shows the tachometric scale. The dial is protected by a sapphire crystal.

The heart of the Girard-Perregaux watch is a column-wheel chronograph movement developed and produced independently by the Manufacture. The 304-component self-winding movement operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The movement gives an advantage of a 36-hour power reserve.

Connoisseur of the inner life of mechanical watches can admire the sophisticated mechanism and the fascinating quality of its finish through the transparent sapphire crystal case-back.

The timepiece is 30-meter water-resistant. It embraces the wrist with an alligator strap fitted with an ardillon buckle.
