Girard Perregaux are one of the few Swiss brands to still retain Manufacture status, with the ability to complete all of the necessary horological skills in-house. The Vintage 1945 is an Art Deco style in a modern size case which wears beautifully due to the curved case-back and down-tilted lugs that let it hug the wrist. The movement is the in-house self-winding Calibre 3306, with 32 jewels and a 46-hour power reserve, displaying hours, minutes and small seconds. It also features complex patented calibre that displays the date and moon phases without compromising the time- hands. It takes one ten thousandth of a second to change the date, which is displayed on two overlapping fine discs, one of which is glass. The effect of this is invisible separation between the numbers. No other twin-date watches have come close to achieving this. The dial is a subtle off-white colour that adds to the vintage feel. It is beautifully executed with applied rose gold indices and hour markers. The rose gold hands are faceted (not just stamped out), and the moon and stars are also depicted in rose gold against a deep blue background. Everything has been designed to catch the light, and this effect is then accentuated by an elongated, arched (rather than domed) crystal, and the overall effect is stunning. This example is a full set with everything that would have come with the watch when new, including original Warranty card and all booklets. It has also recently undergone a full service by Swisstec, who are Girard Perregaux’s official UK service centre, at a cost of £1000. The watch has been worn sparingly since, and as a result is immaculate, and also benefits from Manufacturer’s Warranty until 9th November 2021 (the service card is provided). The watch comes on a GP alligator strap and 18k Rose Gold Deployant clasp. The rose-gold version of 1945 XXL Large Date Moon Phase currently has an RRP of £22,800, and the quality of the watch fully justifies that price tag.
