The 1966 Collection by Girard-Perregaux is defined by its spotless, unadulterated and refined plan. Its rich styling has as of now been portrayed here when we surveyed the 1966 Blue Dial or with the more ongoing 41mm version . This assortment likewise incorporates numerous complications, for example, an Equation of Time and Annual Calendar , a full schedule and even a Minute Repeater . The lone missing capacity was a subsequent time-zone. This void is now loaded up with the presentation of the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Dual Time.
The Girard-Perregaux 1966 Dual Time features design codes commonplace of the 1966 assortment. Nonetheless, it adds not only an additional hand to show a subsequent time-zone however it likewise introduces a new format and some more profundity to an extremely traditional and clean plan. The 40mm 18k pink gold case utilizes similar rich bends, with short carries and adjusted case-groups, so the oddity isn’t here (and it’s something worth being thankful for in light of the fact that this case is incredibly pleasant to behold and to wear).
Aesthetically, the most prominent improvement is in the showcase and the dial. Accessible in a splendid off-white or a dim charcoal, it comes with bended and distending gold records, coordinating the case and the hands. Inside this dial, a 24-hour track, marginally appearing differently in relation to the primary plate, demonstrates the additional time-zone, and is pointed with a red hand. At 6, we can locate a valuable date work, shown by a pivoting hand within a roundabout sub-dial. This sub-counter is orbited with a gold ring making extra differentiation and a refined last touch. The various advances, layers and tones of this dial makes a more complicated inclination and carry a wonderful profundity to a plan typically very (perhaps as well) clean.
On the correct side of the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Dual Time we find two pushers (on the two sides of the fluted crown, much the same as a chronograph). These are utilized to quickly change the hour hand to the nearby time, forward or in reverse by 1-hour increases. The change is along these lines simple and the pushers richly incorporated. The watch is fueled by the renowned type GP-3300 (and with the additional capacities, it becomes the GP-3300-0094). It brags 46 hours power-hold and ticks at a cutting edge 4Hz recurrence. The pleasant completing (Geneva stripes, gold rotor, blued screws and cleaned inclined points) can be seen through the sapphire caseback.
On the wrist, this additional complexity and profundity doesn’t change the exquisite sensation of the past and basic versions of the Girard-Perregaux 1966. The size is unquestionably limited and will impeccably compliment a dress outfit. Just, by adding a few complications, GP have recharged the 1966 with a new, rich and adjusted plan. The new capacities – GMT and date – are functional and have been elegantly coordinated, eliminating none of the characteristic magnificence of the 1966.
The Girard-Perregaux 1966 Dual Time, regardless of the release, is evaluated at 24,200 euros.
