Girard-Perregaux Monte-Carlo 1973 Flyback Chronograph Watch

Jul 07, 2009
Girard-Perregaux has created a new timepiece devoted to the Monte-Carlo Rally 1973. The zest of the new chronograph watch is its heart-winning retro style, along with a flyback function.

The Girard-Perregaux Monte-Carlo 1973 Flyback Chronograph watch features a stainless steel case, measuring 40mm in diameter. The case construction incorporates an engraved tachymeter bezel, finely polished lugs and stalk-like chronograph pushers.

The silvered blue-accented dial of the Girard-Perregaux watch is completed with applied polished hour markers, baton-shaped hands, and black chronograph sub-dials. In the upper part of the dial, right beneath the Girard-Perregaux signature, you will notice the inscription "Monte-Carlo 1973" in red, commemorating the historically important year of the competition.

The Monte-Carlo 1973 Flyback Chronograph watch accommodates a self-winding Girard-Perregaux movement - the GP0337A caliber. The movement, with a balance frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, gives an advantage of a 46-hour power reserve. The chronograph function of the watch allows to record independent time intervals with 1/8 second precision. The flyback chronograph is presented via 30-minute and 12-hour sub-dials. The timepiece also provides a continuous small seconds and an easily-adjustable date functions. The caliber boasts fine decoration.

The timepiece incorporates a solid case-back secured by seven screws. It is 30-meter water-resistant. It is available in a limited number of 250 pieces.

The Girard-Perregaux Monte-Carlo 1973 Flyback Chronograph watch is coupled with an alligator leather strap equipped with a stainless steel deployant buckle. It is housed in an original presentation case demonstrating «Automobile Club de Monaco” symbol.

The year 1973 marked the 42nd edition of the Monte-Carlo Rally and became memorable for a number of reasons. In 1973, the new World Championship for car Brands were launched. A woman became for the first time the overall co-winner of the intense race.
