Girard Perregaux opts for a minimalist style to present a new material for its renowned 1966 collection: Steel.
The new star of the collection flirts with the fine line between genres – male/female, classic/contemporary – while preserving the iconic aesthetic and the in-house manufacture movement of the 1966 collection. The Girard-Perregaux 1966 40 mm Steel has secured its reputation as a must-have timepiece.
Like a tuxedo, its lines are geometric; cut for its slim case with sophisticated finishes, visible on all components. The clean design of the Girard-Perregaux 1966 40 mm Steel extends to the silvered opaline dial, which features beveled indexes. Like the buttons on the shirt’s cuff, the indexes lend the timepiece a distinguished classicism. Under the domed sapphire crystal, the "leaf" type hands unique to the 1966 collection mark the hours and minutes. The large second hand, as well as all of the time indication elements, are silver in colour. Just like a buttonhole, the date at 3 o'clock adds the perfect finishing touch to the composition.
