1966 41mm

“This is my favourite time. They call it blue time when everything is so beautiful, so smooth and so bright,” sang Françoise Hardy in 1969 and it’s that very calm and glowing blue that radiates from the latest in the 1966 collection. This timeless piece is named after the year the first high frequency movement was designed by Girard-Perregaux. Its precious rose or white gold case houses a self-winding movement which provides a 54-hour power reserve and brings to life the hour, minute, second and date functions. These functions lie on a blue delicate sunburst dial with slim baton-shaped indices and applied quarter markers. Leaf-shaped hands and a slim central seconds glide above whilst the black-on-white date display at 3 o’ clock features the sole Arabic numeral on the piece. Price: 15’200 CHF (rose gold) – 16’300 CHF (white gold)
