Girard-Perregaux 1966 Blue Moon
Girard-Perregaux treats this timepiece to a new face by combining its understated and dynamic style.
Bluelike the Earth. Black like the cosmos. In 2019, Girard-Perregaux has initiated a symbolic dialogue with the universe, which is taking a poetic turn this summer with the 1966 Blue Moon.
The exosphere is the outermost layer of the Earth's atmosphere. Deep black by nature, it almost merges into interplanetary space. Likewise, as if on the very frontiers of the void, black largely dominates this revisited classic. Its black DLC treated microblasted steel case and its integrated alligator le at her strap with matt black rubber effect enhanced with elegant blue topstitching are like night itself. The deep blue a dorning the delicately curved dial thereby visually resonates like an echo the globe itself.
The hours, minutes and centre seconds hands are now joined by a pointer type date display at 6 o clock featuring a red dot on the 31st day surrounding the timeless elegance of a moon phase indication which simplifies read off and facilitates adjustment. Throughout the year, this timepiece reveals the changing faces of the night star.
Time is marked off by curved leaf type hands sweeping over baton type hour markers, all featuring contemporary dimensions (40mm) yet without succumbing to ephemeral trends.
In keeping with its long standing tradition, Manufacture Girard-Perregaux has equipped this model with a tried and trusted and supremely refined movement Calibre GP3300-0115 comprises 276 components graced with six different finishes crafted by master watchmakers.
The meticulously circular grained, chamfered and mirror polished mainplate and bridges, the blued screws and the oscillating weight adorned with Côtes de Genève are subtly revealed through its metallised glareproofed sapphire caseback. The 1966 Blue Moon delivers a power reserve of at least 46 hours, and iswater resistant to 3 ATM equivalent to 30 metres.
