A heritage of tradition – Carrying the legacy of Girard-Perregaux's clean, refined style, the Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection embodies the Brand's all-encompassing expertise in creating great watchmaking classics.
The latest creation in this line, the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Small second model, with a design of the utmost purity, bears the distinctive hallmarks of a refined timepiece right down to the smallest details.
The new Girard-Perregaux 1966 Small second, with a 40-millimetre round case, embraces this philosophy perfectly. The design is largely inspired by Girard-Perregaux's 19th century pocket watches. For a contemporary homage to this secular tradition, it quickly became clear that enamel was the only choice for the dial. This traditional technique, now only mastered by a very few experts, consists of fixing the enamel powder and ensuring its harmonious balance through heat during delicate firing stages. Complementing this inspiration are elegant painted Arabic numerals which punctuate the movement of the blued steel leaf-shaped hour and minute hands, while the small second hand marks its path around a counter at 6 o'clock.
This model beats in time to a new automatic movement, developed from the Girard-Perregaux calibre 3300. In line with the Brand's ongoing quest for excellence, this masterpiece of watch creation offers a small second display centred at 6 o'clock to perfectly balance the design.
Ever since 1791, Girard-Perregaux has been pursuing its course in the best tradition of Fine Watchmaking. The Maison’s history has been characterised by legendary timepieces that combine cutting-edge design with innovative technology.Find out more >
