Introducing the Girard-Perregaux Competizione
La Chaux-de-Fonds-based Girard-Perregaux was founded in 1791 and is celebrating its 225th anniversary this year with a new collection rooted in motor racing: Competizione. The brand has unveiled two versions a self-winding chronograph: the vintage-style “Stradale” and the seriously sporty “Circuito”.
The Stradale has a 42mm steel case whilst the Circuito is made of a titanium and carbon composite (with black DLC pushers and a titanium crown).
The classic model has a silver and black dial whilst the sportier piece has a black honeycomb openwork disc. Both versions have the same hands: silver baton-shape hour and minute hands, a red chronograph seconds hand (in the centre) and small seconds hand (at 3). The date appears at 4.30, the minute counter at 9 and the hour counter at 6.
