Girard-Perregaux Revives a Classic

  • Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 XXL
  • Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 XXL

Girard-Perregaux has decided that the best way to update its rectangular and iconic Vintage 1945 model was to give it some curves. The roundness, however, is only apparent once you strap the new XXL model ($23,100) onto your wrist. The company has curved the case both longitudinally and horizontally to create a dramatic, wrist-hugging bubble that still preserves the original proportions of the design. Classic elements, like Breguet numerals, Dauphine hands, and a perfectly sized subsidiary seconds display, tie this latest incarnation to the spirit of the original Art Deco design.
