Haute Time: Girard-Perregaux Launches 1966 Blue Dial Chronograph

New Blue Dial Chrono from Girard-Perregaux

With Father’s Day looming around the corner, the qualms of gift buying have been swept off your shoulder with the release of Girard-Perregaux’s new 1966 Blue Dial Chronograph.

The master watchmakers are celebrating a 220th anniversary with a gleaming blue dial version of their 1966 Chronograph. A 40mm white gold case sets off the blue dial and is coupled with a sleek black alligator strap. The elegant look conceals a multifaceted system of 338 components of the brand’s automatic, self-winding movement, which can be admired from the back of the case through anti-reflective sapphire crystal. This classic watch characterizes the technical and stylistic expertise of a brand forever in pursuit of perfection.

In 1966 Girard-Perregaux was awarded the Centenary Prize from the Neuchâtel Observatory crediting its research in the field of precision. The Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection pays homage to this spirit of ingenuity and has become an icon of the name.

The concise lines and simple structure of this model exude the sophisticated production process. Assembled in their workshops, the case and its screws are deliberately crafted for comfort on the wrist and painstakingly finished to reveal the exquisite lustre of the white gold.
