Inspired by Art Deco style, the Vintage 1945 Lady unveils a dial adorned with a row of diamonds and a steel case that is itself, also gem set. It houses the manufacture mechanical caliber GP02700 - one of the smallest to be found in watchmaking, with its diameter of only 19.4mm - offering hour, minute, and date functions.

Shimmering with iridescent reflections, the dial of the Vintage 1945 Lady represents the Art Deco inspired design that is 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 center recalls the rail track minute display of the original models of the collection.
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. 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.

The watch is worn on a steel or black alligator strap, equipped with a triple safety folding buckle in steel.
