Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 XXL large date, Moon-Phases.

The Vintage 1945 XXL Collection combines proven techniques with uncluttered aesthetics to give its time indications their maximum impact.

The Vintage 1945 Large Date, Moon-Phases model indicates, as well as the hours and minutes, the date and lunar quarters also. Situated on opposite sides of the dial at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock respectively, the large date fixes the framework for the phases of the moon. The large date is displayed by means of two extremely thin disks, one for the tens, and the other for the units. The date change takes place instantly, in one ten-thousandth of a second.

The new Girard-Perregaux timepieces beat to the rhythm of the GP03300 caliber, the delicate workmanship of which can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back. Entirely designed, manufactured and assembled in the firm's workshops at La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland, the automatic mechanical movement is decorated in keeping with the time-honored requirements of watchmaking tradition.

The layout is beautiful, the Arabic numerals are floating, big date, Curvature crystal add on an Art Deco 1945. The end of WWII, the time we should celebrate. Quick glance in this Pink gold big watch has certain images of Jaeger LeCoultre’s Reverso, but the slug design is different.

Price is more comfortable for someone like me to buy, a very reasonable price for a 222 years of Heritage and history… What do you think!?
