GIRARD-PERREGAUX 1966 JEWELLERY

The legendary 1966 collection from Swiss watch manufacture Girard-Perregaux gets a new sparkling member who is dressed in 807 diamonds just to tell the time. The case is in White or pink gold and measuring 38 mm diameter. The new dazzling GIRARD-PERREGAUX 1966 Jewellery model remains faithful to the great classics of watchmaking. Its elegance is revealed both in the sparkle of the 807 diamonds that carpet the watch and in the harmony emitted by its silhouette.

Haloed with a gem-set bezel, the slightly curved dial, entirely paved with “brilliant”-cut precious stones, required hours of meticulous gem-setting work. The twinkling diamonds are arranged in concentric fashion striking hypnotic effect. Keeping watch over time, the “leaf”-type hour and minute hands and four applied hour markers lend their elegance to the sophistication of the piece.

The alligator-skin strap comfortably encircles the wrist, closing with a delicately gem-set ardillon buckle. The purity of the piece is completed by the beauty of its mechanism. The mechanical movement with automatic winding manufactured at Girard-Perregaux is equipped with a power reserve of over 46 hours.

Visible through the sapphire-crystal case back, its gold oscillating weight is engraved with circular Côtes de Genève decoration. Renowned for its delicacy and reliability, the calibre 3300 is the worthy heir to 221 years of watchmaking expertise.
