Girard-Perregaux 1966 Chronograph now in 42 mm with Date
One of Girard-Perregaux’s works of art, the 1966 Chronograph, is currently additionally accessible in a somewhat bigger 42 mm case and with a date function.
Although bigger, it actually has the work of art and immortal looks as other models from the GP 1966 Collection, similar to the 1966 Annual Calendar and EOT and the 1966 Full Calendar . Its case actually shows the notable exquisite bends and highlights the short hauls, which are planned so the watch will embrace your wrist. Sounds promising or are there additionally some other remarks?
Well indeed, similar to our companions from Hodinkee previously expressed in their audit of the 1966 Chronograph (the ‘regular’ 40 mm form), the movement’s measurements aren’t truly fit for a 40 mm size case. We concur that this radiant in-house development would better fit in a more modest size case, say around 38 mm. Why? Consider it a perfectionist assessment, yet I favor a development that consummately fits for a situation. Then again, broadening the case’s distance across gives more space to the tachymeter scale and keeps the dial very quiet in spite of the fact that there’s a ton to see.
The development, type 3300-0057, depends on the Girard-Perregaux in-house type 3300. This type is utilized as base for a considerable lot of their watches like the previously mentioned and in any event, for the Sea Hawk Pro 1000m we investigated a year ago. It’s a lovely, dependable and wonderfully completed movement.
Despite the puristic analysis, I should say that Girard-Perregaux again made a totally delightful watch, that consummately suits in the rich GP 1966 Collection, which will come at a cost of € 25.400 Euro.
