See the Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 XXL Large Date and Moon Phases at the Cellini 430 Park Avenue Boutique.

The sober lines of the Vintage 1945 evoke the aesthetic heritage of the early 20th century that Girard-Perregaux has so consistently espoused.

In a vibrant tribute to Art Deco, the straight lines melt into curves and back again in perfect balance. The rectangular case places the Art Deco notion of geometry at the heart of its design.

The case and sapphire crystal are curved from top to bottom and from left to right ; a convex profile more difficult to shape than a case with straight lines. The dauphine hands are delicately curved by hand to fit the shape of the dial perfectly. Various details such as the applied Arabic numerals, small seconds counter and the railway minute track are inspired by the first Vintage 1945 model.

Calibre GP03300

A GP unique patented large date is displayed by means of two extremely thin disks, one for the tens, and the other for the units so that there is no visible separation between the numerals. To be almost invisible, the transparent disc is extremely thin: only 0.10 mm thick. The date change is instant, taking only one ten-thousandth of a second.
