Introducing: The Girard-Perregaux 1966 Dual Time, A User-Friendly And Cost-Friendly Travel Companion
It presents a genuine test to the Chronométrie Dual Time from Montblanc , another attractive and sensibly estimated dual time in hardened steel. Be that as it may, the GP presents a natural quickset capacity for the nearby time, constrained by pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock, while home time is set customarily through the crown at 3 o’clock. It’s an extraordinarily easy to use translation of the dual time, which we’re not complaining about.
The hands of the new 1966 Dual Time are currently generally leaf-molded and made in strong hardened steel, including the red home-time hand. The hour markers are slimmer, not, at this point associated by a railroad-style minute track, and the date show – which is constrained by the corrector at 8 o’clock – presently sits completely on top of the 24-hour focus ring at 6 o’clock.
Oddly, these minor changes combine to make a watch that feels more suitable for night wear, regardless of whether it’s not, at this point made with the past metal generally held for such occasions.
The new Dual Time indeed runs on the production assembled GP03300-0119, a programmed development that beats at 4Hz. It’s delightfully completed – combining perlage and Geneva stripes well – and it’s advanced pleasantly through a sapphire case back.
The Girard-Perregaux 1966 Dual Time comes on a dark crocodile tie with a steel pin clasp, and is accessible from $10,500.
