For the watch manufacturer Girard-Perregaux, the introduction of the Girard Perregaux in 1966 was a milestone in the company's history. With this collection, the Swiss watch manufacturer literally built a bridge between the past and the present. The Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection is a strong reminder of the intensive research work carried out by the company in the 1960s. For the watchmaker, this decade was decisive for the future. The distinguishing feature of this collection is the combination of the clear design of the form and the simple arrangement of the functions of this ladies' watch. And yet highlights were created in the Girard Perregaux 1966 with the display of the moon phase on the dial. The Girard Perregaux 1966 clearly stands out from the Tourbillon with the three gold bridges by Constant Girard (1825 to 1903), which won one of the gold medals at the Paris World Exhibition in 1889. However, the Girard Perregaux 1966 clearly sets itself apart and represents a whole new generation of watches.
