  • Catalogue Essay

    The Swiss luxury watchmaking Manufacture, Girard-Perregaux based in la Chaux-de-Fonds unveils a unique piece in order to support the 6th edition of the biennial charity auction for the benefit of research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
    Authentic artistic icon, worthy successor of Girard-Perregaux's history, the Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 XXL Large Date and Moon-Phases Only Watch reveals for the first time a case in titanium DLC and a transparent dial carved in blue polycrystalline, a hint to the color of the Foundation's logo. Its genesis: a contemporary style, perfect symmetry and a mechanical manufactured movement.
    In terms of technical specifications, all the indications of time are harmoniously arranged and readable at a glance. At 12 o'clock, the large jumping date displays the date on a pair of discs- one of which is transparent - in an exclusive patented system of the brand. The moon-phases indicator at 6 o'clock provides a perfect visual balance while the hands and the applied Arabic numerals indicate the hours in a sheer simplicity. The case-back side, open on the visible movement, features the emblematic signature of Only Watch.
    Designed in the purest Art Deco style, the rectangular "1945" case - named for the year of its creation - forms part of the repertoire of iconic Girard-Perregaux classics, and the GP03300-0105 manufactured caliber match its dimensions, which is highly unusual for watches with distinctive shapes. With 282 components, the frequency of the self-winding caliber is fixed at 28,800 vibrations per hour.
    Preciously decorated in line with the highest standards of fine watchmaking, the list of its high-end finishes is like an anthology of decorative traditions.
