Every year, the major watch brands will show their most beautiful timepieces, in order to win the attention of professional watch connoisseurs! Unfortunately, this is not an easy task. The key is to be able to master the balance between technology and design. Just one of the best is not enough. Today, the Girard-Perregaux 1966 hollow watch 49549 is a masterpiece that combines technology and design!
Girard-Perregaux 1966 Skeleton Watch 49549 is different from previous stencil watches. Many brands have to focus on slashing as much as possible, and creating more and more internal knuckles to show traditional manual grinding techniques, often forgetting to keep Balance and readability. Girard-Perregaux’s choice of this time pays more attention to the subtle layering and contrasting finishes, thus creating a very attractive and perfect whole.
Girard-Perregaux 1966 hollow watch 49549 dials are now completely open for the movement, only 12 o’clock gold balance is constantly ticking, gold small seconds hand carefully placed at 10 o’clock. I really appreciate the here with three colors wisely distinguishing three levels: gold: for the outermost rose gold case, the inner edge of the movement ring is printed with gold minute track, hour mark, and hands Gray: The plated hollow splint in the middle layer, the hollow splint has no engraving and decorative pattern, only the brushed texture, the edge of the splint has a perfect polished chamfer, and there are many sharp inner corners in the hollow, indicating that this is done by hand. Silver: All screws, gear trains and barrels (the barrel is also hollowed out, which means there is naturally a power reserve indication.) Due to the high contrast between the polished gold hands and the matte anthracite movement, this watch remains It’s easy to read the time.
The back of the Girard-Perregaux 1966 hollow watch 49549 is also visual enjoyment. It has a large gold turn watch – the hollow is very naughty and has an asymmetrical design, which has a kind of dynamic. All splints are also polished and chamfered as the front side. The GP1800 caliber has 173 components, Girard-Perregaux’s unique “Microvar” screw balance with a frequency of 4 Hz and a single barrel guarantees a power reserve of up to 54 hours.
