Best of the Best 2012: Women's Watches: Classic Design: Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Lady

  • Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Lady

While usually considered a traditional men’s brand, Girard-Perregaux repeatedly has proven adept at adding contemporary elements to its classical shapes to make them more appealing to women. Its Vintage 1945 Lady ($29,900) is the latest proof of this particular aptitude. By upending the proportions of perhaps its most time-honored case design and adding bold colors, the company has created a timepiece that is more stylish and more versatile than offerings from many other, more fashion-oriented watchmakers. As evidenced by the sunray dial, Arabic numeral appliqués, and impeccably set diamonds, the watch showcases the superb finishing that has long characterized pieces from Girard-Perregaux.
