1966 41 MM

Sober elegance

The Watch Quote™ - October 7th, 2012

A worthy heir to the prestigious creations that have earned the Manufacture’s reputation for excellence, the new Girard-Perregaux 1966 watch presents refined style within a diameter of 41 millimetres. An ode to functionality, the timepiece marks the hours with the timeless spirit of classic watchmaking.



With its three hands on an opaline dial, time finds its most elegant expression. The pink gold case – re-designed for the occasion – adapts itself perfectly to the wrist. The pure lines and hand-crafted finishes that are uncompromising yet without ostentation pay homage to great watchmaking tradition.

On the lightly curved dial, four applied hour markers take the form of a slender baton to signal the hours. The two leaf-shaped hands are joined by a central seconds hand in blue steel, evoking the great watchmaking classics, while the date is discreetly visible at 3 o’clock. All these marks of distinction herald a refined timepiece par excellence.



The enlarged case is adapted to the dimensions of the self-winding mechanical calibre GP4500, designed at the Manufacture’s R&D department and entirely produced and assembled within its workshops. Composed of 188 pieces, the calibre has a power reserve of 54 hours. Its pink gold oscillating weight, engraved with the name of the brand, is adorned with Côtes de Genève decoration.

The Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection has naturally established itself as one of the brand’s icons thanks to its character and excellence. Ever since, it has boasted Manufacture movements that possess all the historical, technical and aesthetic expertise of Girard-Perregaux.
