Girard-Perregaux 1966 Guilloche Mens Thumb 150Among Girard-Perregaux’s releases at Baselworld this year are new pieces in the 1966 collection for men and women. The new Girard-Perregaux 1966 features a rose-gold case and fine guilloché on the dial.

Holding the new 1966 up to the light gives quite a view. The loping guilloché pattern stems out from the center of the dial in 12 sectors. The dial itself is in silver with a flinqué enameling technique applied to it. Applied indexes at 12, 3, 6 and 9 are baton-shaped and painted in a gold to match the case. A date window is at 3 o’clock. The hands are feuille-shaped.

There are sapphire crystals on both the front and back of the case. The rose-gold case has a mildly sloping bezel, leading down to polished lugs. The watch comes on a black alligator strap with overstitching; the pin buckle is also in rose gold. The watch costs $16,300.

    Absolutely stunningly simple and timeless. The guilloché and enamel on the dial must be amazing to look at. Would love to see this in the flesh
