GP 1966 LIMITED EDITION PALLADIUM

GIRARD-PERREGAUX 1966
LIMITED EDITION PALLADIUM MODELS

The Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection has quickly become one of the Brand's icons. Named in honour of the Neuchatel Observatory's Centenary Prize, awarded to the Manufacture in 1966 for its achievements in the field of chronometry, it embodies Girard-Perregaux's expertise both in terms of style and technical performance.

This year, Girard-Perregaux has chosen to create two limited edition models, each in only 199 pieces, with a palladium case which perfectly complements their timeless elegance.

GIRARD-PERREGAUX 1966 FULL CALENDAR PALLADIUM

Brought to life by its palladium case, the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Full Calendar combines the functions and style of a great watchmaking classic, reworked in a unique metal. This limited edition integrates a full calendar displaying the date, day of the week, month and moon phases.

Time moves fluidly around its perfectly-proportioned dial. Accompanying the path traced by its fine, leaf-shaped hands, two windows placed side-by-side at 12 o'clock display the day of the week and the month. The moon follows its path at 6 o'clock, ornamenting the date indicator. Beautiful symmetry, optimal readability: the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Full Calendar satisfies the most refined tastes in terms of both pure design and distinctive style. On the back, the sapphire case-back reveals the GP033M0 mechanical self-winding movement designed by the Manufacture.

With its incomparable whiteness, the palladium case emphasises the outstanding character of these timepieces, available in only 199 numbered pieces. Part of the platinum family, this metal is twenty times less abundant than gold, and more resistant. Palladium is a rare metal much sought after for its numerous qualities. In particular, it does not require any rhodium plating, nor does it tarnish. This makes it the ideal metal for a watch with timeless character, such as the Girard-Perregaux 1966.

GIRARD-PERREGAUX 1966 SMALL SECOND PALLADIUM

Palladium's natural brilliance underlines the purity of this Girard-Perregaux 1966 limited edition. Its aesthetic qualities focus on the essentials of the design: the perfection of the finishes and readability of the functions of a watchmaking classic, enriched by a remarkable metal.

Palladium is a rare metal from the platinum group, with numerous qualities: more resistant to external damage than gold, it is very pure, does not tarnish, needs no treatment and has a brilliant whiteness. It is in perfect harmony with the elegance of the Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection, revealing beautifully the clarity of the round dial. The 38-millimetre case has been carefully polished to bring out the sheer brilliance of the metal. A special finish on the bezel gives the piece an unparalleled sheen.

The clean design belies the complexity involved in the production of this watch. From the movement comprising hundreds of components right up to the brilliant case, each element was given meticulous attention.
   
The movement, like the case, is produced by the Manufacture. It integrates the date and a small second, which are displayed at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock respectively. The sapphire case-back reveals the self-winding mechanism, which oscillates at 28,800 vibrations per hour. Based on a calibre with proven reliability - the GP3300 - its finishes are in keeping with Girard-Perregaux's Haute Horlogerie tradition.
