New Girard-Perregaux 1966 Designer Watch with Blue Dial

The Girard-Perregaux 1966 designer watch with blue dial and 41 mm case is a novelty in the brand’s regular 1966 collection. This new 1966 Blue Dial model is a very attractive timepiece: clear, elegant, thin, with a perfect size and a very interesting color combination of dark blue dial and pink gold case. This luxury watch looks equally well with business and casual styles. And it's really hard to find any disadvantages in this model.

The 1966 Blue Dial model unlike its predecessor features not only a new case size, 41 mm instead of 38 mm, but also a larger movement. The 38 mm version comes with a 25 mm movement and its case back looks a little bit empty. For the 41 mm version, the Girard-Perregaux luxury watch brand has chosen a movement with a diameter of 30 mm. Instead of the well-known GP3300 caliber, the 1966 model with a 41 mm case is supplied with the in-house GP1800 caliber composed of 190 components. Despite these differences in architecture, both models have the same very nice finish, videlicet polished beveled angles, circular graining on the main plate, bridges decorated with straight Côtes de Genève pattern and a gold oscillating weight engraved with the brand name and also adorned with Geneva stripes. One more advantage of the bigger size is the possibility to set the large main spring, which entails minimum 54 hours of power reserve. As for the appearance of the sapphire crystal case back, the image has also been improved because the new movement has better filled the case.
 



Another difference between the old and new 1966 high-end watches relates to the materials used in the production. Along with the case made of 18 karat pink gold, the 1966 Blue Dial model is also available in a version made of 18 karat white gold with a matching pin buckle. The same beautiful dial contains perfectly executed indicators. Hands and applied index markers are made of gold corresponding to the case material. As the movement has become larger, a date window has shifted further along the scale, thereby giving this new Swiss watch a more balanced design. However, the date aperture remains white for both versions. In addition, the 1966 Blue Dial model features a slightly spherical crystal and also a diamond polished bezel, which enhances the delicacy of the timepiece. The choice between these fine watches with 38 mm or 41 mm case depends entirely on individual preferences. The diameter of 38 mm is rather small, but such a timepiece can be also seen as ladies watch according to current standards. At the same time, the model with the diameter of 41 mm will probably be very popular among potential buyers and Girard-Perregaux fans.
