Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 XXL Small Second – Steel Case, Blue dial

The Vintage 1945 XXL collection combines an attractive rectangular case with features representing the most authentic Art Deco style of watchmaking. The new Vintage 1945 XXL Small Second introduces a blue dial as well with iridescent reflections into the range for the first time. Like the case, the dial presents a profile that is twice as curved further emphasized by a vertical brushed effect. This contrasts with the satin finish of the small second indication, whose red figure “60” represents the sole touch of bright color to be found in the ensemble. The edge of the dial is surrounded by a railtrack minute circle accompanied by polished “Breguet” applique numerals. The Dauphine-type minute and hour hands are faceted and delicately curved by hand to follow the shape of the dial thus creating a sparkling interplay of light.

The imposing 36.20 mm x 35.25 mm polished steel case features two vertical gadroons at 12 and 6 o’clock. Equipped with a GP03300-0051 mechanical, self-winding Manufacture movement, the Vintage 1945 XXL Small Second timepiece indicates the hours, minutes and small seconds.

The model is available in two different versions. The first is equipped with a navy blue alligator strap while the second is fitted with a steel bracelet.
