The Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 XXL Collection features some of the finest timepieces ever. The Large Date and Moon Phases Transparent Dial Watch offers a combination of proven techniques with brilliant aesthetics in order to showcase the time indications. Carved in steel the timepiece is rich in so many ways, from contrasting dials, satin finishes, and beautiful decorative relief, masterpieces of art.
The exquisite timepiece is crafted by a charcoal-gray spherical dial, and an elegant vertically-applied satin finish, completed by a steel bracelet, contemporary and stylish, featuring a alternating polished and satin finish. The soft surface of the dial is detailed by the discreet relief of the applied Breguet numerals and the counters whose fitted circles and azure decorations shimmer like sunshine reflecting on glass.
The Vintage 1945 XXL Large Date and Moon Phase Transparent Dial Watch has other indications in addition to the hours and minutes, the date and lunar quarters. Sitting on opposite sides of the dial, at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, the large date aligns the framework for the phases of the moon. This timepiece allows time to be presented in the absolute purest form of watchmaking tradition. The date is displayed in the grandest fashion by two extremely thin disks, one for tens and one for units. With instantaneous date change, the watch is very classic and totally uncluttered.
The collection’s rectangular case is carved out of steel, very ergonomic and very Girard-Perregaux. The contours fit the wrist beautifully and finished in such a way that the light reflects the detailing and shines like the brightest star in the sky. Every detail of this timepiece complements each other, from the straight lines to the curves, from the decorative arts that embrace this collection, each trademark feature that endows these pieces and has created the enduring legacy that stands tall for the brand.
The GP03300 caliber beats like a perfect drum, never missing a single beat, and powering this collection and showcases the delicate workmanship through the sapphire crystal case back. The timepieces are designed, manufactured and assembled in the brands workshops at La Chaux-de-fonds in Switzerland. The traditions of the brand continue with this collection and every mm of the 35.25 mm watch that might seem small in comparison to the name. For everyone looking for a classic timepiece, that is elegant, exquisite and accurate, then look no more.
