Pre-Basel 2014: Introducing the Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 and 1966 with blue dials

Girard-Perregaux now offers its signature Vintage 1945 and 1966 models with dark blue, metallic finish dials. Both models are powered by the in-house GP cal. 3300 automatic movement.

Both of Girard-Perregaux’s retro-inspired signature models, the Vintage 1945 and 1966 will soon be available with metallic blue dials. Girard-Perregaux is typically adept at classical designs, and these are no exception. Though they different versions of existing models, the new dials add a bit of colour to otherwise conservative designs.  The round 1966 has a sunburst brushed blue dial, paired with a 38 mm rose gold case that is a slim 8.62 mm high.

And the Vintage 1945 XXL is in steel, with slightly more muted blue dial finished with vertical brushing. A red “60” on the sub-seconds gives the dial a dash of colour. This is available on a leather strap or a steel bracelet, with the case measuring 36.20 mm by 35.25 mm.

Both watches contain the in-house GP cal. 3300, a compact automatic movement with a 46 hour power reserve.

Pricing is still unknown, but based on retail prices for equivalent current models, expect the 1966 to be in the region of US$16,000 and the Vintage 1945 to be about US$7000 to US$8000.
