GIRARD PERREGAUX - VINTAGE 1945 XXL CHRONOGRAPH

Girard-Perregaux has introduced new versions of the Vintage 1945 XXL Chronograph. The models are now available with a striking charcoal grey dial with vertical satin finishing and a new bracelet.

The Vintage 1945 XXL Chronograph was entirely updated at the end of 2012 and transformed from tri-compax to a bi-compax chronograph. The new charcoal grey dial was already available on the Vintage 1945 and with this update it is now available on all steel models from the Vintage 1945 collection. The GP03300 base calibre remains the same in each version with a different module for either the large date and moon phase indications or for the chronograph with two registers.

The automatically wound movement is visible through a sapphire crystal in the case back and is entirely designed, manufactured and assembled in the firm’s workshops at La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland.

This new model comes on a bracelet that can be adjusted in length by a folding triple steel clasp equipped with a security catch.
