In the same way that 1966 was a landmark for Swiss Watch manufacturer Girard-Perregaux, 2013 looks bright for the company’s now homage-paying collection. A thin case and feminine charm accurately describe Girard-Perregaux newest timepiece for women: The Girard-Perregaux 1966 Lady Feminine Mystique.
So, why was 1966 such an important year in watchmaking for Girard-Perregaux? The 60’s marked the beginning of watch manufacturers using Research & Development teams to reshape and establish better quality timepiece models.
Luckily for Girard-Perregaux, their R&D people did so well that they received 73% of the chronometer awards presented by the Neuchatel Observatory the following year. To commemorate this decade of dedication Girard-Perregaux produced a special 1966 collection and the latest installment has just been released.
The Girard-Perregaux 1966 Lady Feminine Mystique comes in white or pink gold and has an astonishing 80 carefully cut diamonds supported by the bezel set.
With the Girard-Perregaux name tastefully engraved below the 12 o’clock its hard to forget the tenacity that brought this company so many chronometer awards nearly a half-century ago.
A transparent sapphire glass backing allows you to see the caliber GP03200 and gold oscillator, revealing the intricacy of this modern mechanism.
Except for the Roman Numerals six and 12 o’clock all of the other hands land on diamond studs as the hours pass. These decorative pieces highlight the exceptional care that Girard-Perregaux went through to make this watch stunning for any female wrist.
The Lady Feminine Mystique comes with a white or black calfskin band, which is eloquently accented by the gold rim and pin buckle.
In its classic look, the Girard-Perregaux’s newest 1966 model is crafted specifically for dedicated women destined for success.
The Lady Feminine Mystique is sure to redefine the essence of elegance in 2013.
