Girard-Perregaux has added to its popular 1945 collection. At 32mm x 32mm this watch seems somewhat smaller among today's larger models; however, its perfect balance and gentle colors exude a sense of harmony. On the four corners of the watch case are small ledges called godrons. The godrons warp around the corners adding to the art deco geometric aspect of the watch. Although the case is small its movement is intensely accurate: The Mechanical with automatic winding GP3300. With a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, 28 jewels and 46 hours minimum power reserve, the movement can be viewed via a sapphire crystal case back.
The dial is rich in design, materials and color. The pink gold dauphine hands indicate to applied pink gold hour markers. The date is between the 1 and 2 o'clock and the subsidiary seconds dial is centered above the 9'o clock. The watch exudes an expression of distinction and worth.
