Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Lady

The new Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Lady boasts a new face with a dial elegantly adorned with a row of diamonds. Its art deco inspired stainless steel case is also gem set and houses the exceptional GP02700 movement.

Shimmering with iridescent reflections, the dial of the vintage 1945 lady naturally represents the exquisite art deco inspired design that is so characteristic of this collection. It is highlighted by a double curve that forms a convex dome, creating a regular and harmonious unity of volumes. The setting of 42 brilliant-cut diamonds at its centre recalls the rail track minute display of the original models of the collection. The Arabic numerals 3, 9 and 12 are clearly distinguished, while the date appears in a discreet aperture at 6 o’clock.

Delicately shaped yet sturdy, the dauphine type hands have a diamond-finish surface that creates a darting interplay of reflections. The watchmaker reworks each hand by hand so as to curve it to match the inclination of the dial.

Flanked by its two lateral shafts, the steel case is delicately cambered.  Each horn is set with 15 diamonds to form two dazzling rows of stones. At 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock two gadroons emphasize the lugs and give a structure to it as a whole.

The case-back, secured by screws, is fitted with a sapphire crystal that affords a view of the movement’s oscillating weight, decorated with a tapestry motif. Technically and aesthetically outstanding, the calibre is among the smallest to be found in watchmaking, with its diameter of only 19.4 mm.
