This year, the legendary Swiss watch brand Girard-Perregaux is celebrating its 220th anniversary. On this joyful occasion, one more timepiece is making its appearance featuring an elegant blue dial. The Girard-Perregaux Manufacture has added an elegant touch of blue to the white gold chronograph in its Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection. This classic watch characterises the technical and stylistic expertise of a Brand forever in pursuit of perfection.
In 1966, Girard-Perregaux received the Centenary Prize from the Neuchâtel Observatory in recognition of its research in the field of precision. The Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection pays tribute to this spirit of innovation, and has become an icon of the Brand.
Girard-Perregaux opted for a column wheel chronograph with a 30-minute counter and a central second hand. A tachymeter scale reinforces the character of the model.
