Early this year, the watchmaker Girard-Perregaux has introduced the Collections Vintage 1966 & 1945. Both collections are a tribute to the blue color. The founder and creator Girard-Perregaux, Jean-François Bautte, granted in the 19th century an important part to the blue color in the creation of its timepieces. It was a revolution at the time and the color has remained an emblem of the brand.

Girard-Perregaux 1966 line

This new, perfectly accomplished timepiece has a slightly-domed deep blue tone dial. With a subtle “sunburst” on the dial, the light seems to dance with every movement of the dial giving to this blue an almost hypnotic effect. The functions of the watch display the date at 3 o’clock but also very elegant hour markers and golden hands.

The magnificent case in pink gold has a diameter of 38 mm and a thickness of 8.62 mm equipped with a mechanical self-winding manufacture movement. The watch has a power reserve of 46 hours and a beautiful alligator strap that fits perfectly the blue dial.
