Girard Perregaux 1966 Series Palladium Limited Full Calendar

In 2006, Girard-Perregaux launched the Girard-Perregaux 1966 series. For the 40th anniversary of the 100th Anniversary Award of the Neuchatel Observatory, the Chronometer Factory was awarded 1966 with outstanding precision timepiece technology. The Girard-Perregaux 1966 series contains the elegant image style and top technical level of the watch factory, and soon became the new generation of Girard-Perregaux classics.

    The Girard-Perregaux 1966 Palladium limited series full calendar is presented in a rare palladium metal case. The practical functions of date, day, month and month are perfectly combined with the timeless style, which is a new generation of watchmaking art classic. Against the backdrop of perfect line proportions, time dances gracefully on the dial: slim young leaf-shaped hands, the day and month display windows on both sides of the 12 o’clock position, and the moon phase and date display at 6 o’clock in a balanced and symmetrical layout for clear display It is also pleasing to the eye, with both exquisiteness and unique style; the crystal glass case back sees the exquisite workmanship of the GP033M0 automatic GP movement made by GP Girard-Perregaux. The dazzling white palladium case showcases a distinguished value of 199 pieces: palladium is a member of the platinum family, which is twenty times rarer than gold, and its hardness and wear resistance are much stronger than gold, without the need for rhodium plating The bright light never fades; its rare and precious characteristics perfectly echo the timeless style of the Girard-Perregaux 1966 series.
