Recently, Girard-Perregaux , which is presently overseen by a similar man as sister-brand Ulysse Nardin , has gone through a strong development, with sportier plans and advancement in the development of its developments. One of the mainstays of the assortment stays the exquisite 1966 watch. In the past viewed as a to some degree ‘restrained’ dress piece consolidating valuable metals, the most recent form of this watch, the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Blue Moon, has deserted a portion of its exemplary temperament.
One of the current themes at Girard-Perregaux is the brand’s “Earth to Sky” theme which has been applied on a few watches, for example, the striking Laureato Skeleton or the recently divulged Laureato Absolute. Watches embracing this theme play on dull shades with dark cases and dark blue dials and accents. Shockingly, this combination functions admirably in the metal on lively pieces. Today, the brand discloses this theme on a totally unique watch, its unmistakable dress watch, the 1966 – and in keeping the sky theme, it includes a moon display.
The new Girard-Perregaux 1966 Blue Moon depends on a model effectively accessible in the assortment, the 1966 Date and Moon Phases. Case, extents and development are this indistinguishable in today’s setting, nonetheless, a few subtleties have been refreshed to give this watch an advanced presence and a less proper clothing. The 40mm steel case, for example, is presently miniature impacted for a matte surface, and afterward dark DLC-covered. The lash is made of rubberised alligator, again for more modernity.
As for the dial, not exclusively does Girard-Perregaux present another tone for this 1966 Blue Moon – a stylish slope blue plan over a sunray-brushed foundation – yet additionally changes the files for more stretched applied batons (indeed, the exemplary plan of the 1966). The hands are cleaned leaf type. At 6 o’clock, we discover a pleasantly offset sub-dial with moon and date by hand.
Powering this 1966 Blue Moon is the in-house type GP03300-0115, a notable base that is utilized in many time-just watches of the assortment, and as a base for complications. This genuinely straightforward automatic development beats at 4Hz and brags 46 hours power save. Its enrichment is pleasant, with Geneva stripes, cleaned inclines and perlage.
