Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 & 1966 Infinity Editions

With their elegant black onyx dials, the Vintage 1945 Infinity Edition and the 1966 Infinity Editions by Girard-Perregaux capture the elegance of a black tie soirée.

These timepieces reinterpret the design codes of their respective eras but employ onyx as a new form of expression. The Vintage 1945 Infinity is housed in a steel case measuring 36.10 x 35.25 mm, while the 1966 Infinity is available in a 30 mm case for ladies, with a 40 mm version for men.

The original Girard-Perregaux 1945 beautifully captured the charm of the Art Deco movement. This styling is now carried over to the Vintage 1945 Infinity Edition. Its stylish rectangular case follows the curving profile of the wrist, delivering a superb ergonomic fit. Dauphine-type hour and minute hands soar over pink gold indexes to succinctly impart meaning.

The crown and bracelet are perfectly integrated into the case with elegant gadroons positioned above and below the dial. The in-house Manufacture movement features a patented ‘grande date’ display. This function employs two separate discs, spaced just 0.1mm apart. It is comprised of 282 components and proclaims the date in a highly legible form.

The 1966 Infinity Edition’s pure appearance is manifest, courtesy of its slender case, round dial, leaf-shaped hands and pink gold indexes – classic features in every sense. It is supplied with a matching leather strap perfectly integrated with the case.

Furthermore, a see-through case-back affords views of the self-winding movement and accompanying pink gold oscillating weight. The company’s monogram is presented at 12 o’clock in pink gold, completing this artistic ensemble.
