Timeless classic of the superlatives – Girard Perregaux 1966 Full Calendar
When a hundred years of experience, passionate handicraft and uncompromising perfection meet the king's class of watchmaking is not far away. The majestic Girard Perregaux 1966 Full Calendar combines the harmony of a classic dress watch with a functional maximum and shows why Swiss watches have always been considered as the measure of all things.
295 components for an outstanding calibre
Simplicity, dynamic contours and an excellent wearing comfort characterize the merely 10.8 mm high case of the Full Calendar. Its design has traditional curves that form a visual symbiosis with the purposely simple dial. This houses the namesake full calendar with weekday and month display in discreet viewing windows as well as the display for the day in the shape of a circular scale at the 6 o'clock position. This scale is framed by the unobtrusive but visible lunar phase of the Full Calendar.
As expected, material and processing quality of the Girard Perregaux 1966 are at the highest level. The shell made of massive, 18ct rose gold encases the heart of the timekeeper, a company-owned automatic calibre with a sovereign power reserve of 46 hours. It gives the Full Calendar not only excellent precision values but also fascinates by its complex construction: As much as 295 components are assembled in professional manual labor and afterwards finished with picture-perfect Côtes de Genève. This love for detail is a matter of course for the prestigious brand from La Chaux-de-Fonds so that also the sportive Hawk Collection or the Vintage watches by Girard Perregaux play in the big league of luxury timepieces in addition to the Full Calendar.
Mechanical top performances since 1791
Numerous milestones of horology are related to the performances of the manufactory: It was awarded at the world exhibitions in Paris in 1867 and in 1889 for its pocket chronometer with three-bridge movement and tourbillon, while the gyromatic caliber that was presented in 1957 signaled a phase of significantly more precise automatic watches. The brand that belongs to the Kering Group today can look back to a company history of more than 200 years and thus ranks among the oldest existing watch manufacturers.
The current product portfolio by the manufacturer comprises several Swiss watches of the superlatives. While you will decide for the 1966 series as a classic-oriented person, you should have a look at the edgy Vintage 1945 models as enthusiast of the extraordinary. They have a unique charm and are equipped with an elegant lunar phase.
