The Girard-Perregaux 1966 Tourbillon timepiece is a highly sophisticated piece of craftsmanship that reflects the tradition of Swiss watch making. It is not surprising that Girard-Perregaux has chosen to unveil the 1966 Tourbillon timepiece as the watch of choice in celebrating its 220 years in the industry.
With its 40mm case, the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Tourbillon timepiece is said to combine the best of both worlds: stunning design and cutting-edge functionalities in one neat package. Every millimeter of the case showcases clean, elegant lines. The silver dial contains Arabic numerals and the time is indicated by leaf-shaped markers. The curvature of the case is specifically designed to provide ultimate comfort to the wearer. The pink gold case was also subjected to careful finishing prior to its launch in the market to enhance the gleam of the gold’s surface. There are six screws in the casing; each manually engraved as a tribute to the tourbillons of the 19th century.
At the heart of this watch is Girard-Perregaux 9610 calibre. This movement contains 224 parts and ingenious engineering features. It has a vibration rate of 21,600 an hour. The mechanism was inspired by the century pocket tourbillons of the 19th century.
