Last year the Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection grabbed our attention as a very functional and wearable offering. Furthermore the 1966 Limited Edition in enamel was a simply incredible piece due to the intricate miniature detailing and cloisonné work. A year later, Girard-Perregaux has revealed the 1966 with a guilloché dial.

 

The technique ‘Guilloché’ refers to engraving a dial in hollowed, concentric patterns utilizing a large hand-turned rose-engine lathe. The new model employs this process to give the flinqué dial a webbed appearance, with each arabesque section beginning at the center and ending at the hour markers.

 

Along with the ‘Guilloché’ engraving, a raised bezel gives the 1966 further depth. The watch features a wonderful balance between the engravings, black printing, pink gold batons and feuille hands. Additionally the date window is carved out, and the effect of matting creates a highly inclusive design.

One of the outstanding features of the Girard-Perregaux’s 1966 watches is their face size. Typically we have seen dress watches at 40-41mm range, but the 1966 has ever so slightly downsized to 38 mm. Those few mm make a world of difference for many wrist sizes out there along with simple design cues.

 

Within the new 1966, the caliber GP03300 beats at 4 Hz. It is a self-winding manufacture movement that is finished with circular graining, Geneva stripes and an 18k gold rotor. The power reserve measures in at approximately 46 hours. Along with the mens watch, the 1966 is offered as a 30 mm ladies’ model with a bezel set with 60 diamonds. The men’s and ladies’ models are both offered with black alligator straps, curved to follow the contours of the case.
