Girard Perregaux

1966 Minute Repeater

Girard Perregaux’s high end watches — minute repeaters and tourbillons — offer unparalleled quality and value. This minute repeater is a true gentleman’s watch. It is rose gold with a gorgeous enamel dial, Breguet numerals and hands, and yet has a contemporary 42mm case. The true magic is in the movement, however. First, there is an incredible depth to the architecture of the calibre. The entire piece has been engineered to create the most possible internal air value for the chimes to sound their best, and indeed they do. This watch sounds as good as almost any minute repeaters I have heard. It is loud, clear, and clean. Check out the video review to hear it in action.
