The 1966 line from Girard-Perregaux is easily the purest from this manufacture of haute horlogerie.
What makes the 1966 line so interesting is that it is everything a fine watch should be, but with a dose of real world wearability. They are all sized correctly with traditional aesthetics and a super fine finishing. Most of them are self-winding and feature complications you can actually use, like a dual time.
The local time is displayed via two luminous gold leaf-shaped hands over a railroad-style minute track, while the home time is shown on a satin-finished 24-hour track on the inner dial.
On the new dual time timepiece the local time is incredibly easy to set via two pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock. Each pusher is engraved with a plus or minus to let you know which way the hand will move.
This watch has a superb look and is great for everyday wear!
