The elegant round body case, with a slightly yellow retro-looking disc surface, brings together Girard Perregaux’s top technology and aesthetic value, showing the timeless style of the 1966 series. This series was reappeared in 2006 (the first in 1966), its subtle elegance and top mechanical technology combined with two swords, and immediately became the new generation of Girard-Perregaux classics. The new work of 2010 inherits the features of both the 1966 series and elegance, with carefully curated lines and lug contours, polished and refined to perfection. The dial is equipped with a central chronograph hand and a 30-minute timer, which is clear and easy to read. The edges of the dial are tachymeter scales, and the overall layout is balanced. It has the elegant style of an antique chronograph.
