According to Girard-Perregaux’s CEO Patrick Pruniaux, “the Vintage 1945 Infinity Edition and both the1966 Infinity Editions in 40mm and 30mm capture the beauty of the past but are refined for today. Unlike many of our Haute Horlogerie models, these watches shun complexity, instead they encompass pure lines and graceful proportions thanks to their black onyx dials.” These timepieces reinterpret the design codes of their respective eras but employ onyx as a new form of expression. The Vintage 1945 Infinity is housed in a steel case measuring 36,10 x 35,25mm, while the 1966 Infinity is available in a 30mm case for ladies, with a 40mm version for men.
The original Girard-Perregaux 1945 beautifully captured the charm of the Art Deco movement. This styling is now carried over to the Vintage 1945 Infinity Edition. Its stylish rectangular case follows the curving profile of the wrist while dauphine-type hour and minute hands soar over pink gold indexes. The crown and bracelet are perfectly integrated into the case with elegant gadroons positioned above and below the dial. The in-house Manufacture movement features a patented ‘grande date’ display.
The 1966 Infinity Edition’s pure appearance is manifest, courtesy of its slender case, round dial, leaf-shaped hands and pink gold indexes. It is supplied with a matching leather strap perfectly integrated with the case. Furthermore, a see-through case-back affords views of the self-winding movement and accompanying pink gold oscillating weight. The company’s monogram is presented at 12 O’clock in pink gold.
The Vintage 1945 Infinity model is limited to just 88 pieces, while both the 30mm and 40mm versions of the 1966 Infinity are limited to 188 examples each.
