Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Black: Art Deco and Vintage Flair

The Girard-Perregaux Watches Vintage 1945 Collection of black and white dial automatic vintage-inspired wrist watches takes the Swiss brand back to the style of the Art Deco era, and a watch first conceived in 1945, where the large, curved stainless steel case and bezel, strap bracelet and clasp, movement, with its moon phases and gold detailing, sapphire and white or black with Arabic numeral dial are all reminiscent of a bye-gone era.  It should come as no surprise that Girard Perregaux, the renowned Swiss manufacture, would add a range of wristwatch models such as the limited edition Vintage 1945 Automatic Collection to its range of stainless steel and gold case wristwatches, as Art Deco style and the mechanics of an Art Deco with Arabic numerals watch have never gone out of fashion, at any price.

The large size stainless steel case, cambered in two directions, as was the sapphire crystal front and exhibition style sapphire crystal watch back, was the epitome of Art Deco style, and comfortable to boot. The silver Dauphine hands are a joy to behold, truly mechanics as art, as all the pictures from Girard Perregaux of the watch confirm.

Details of this titanium case black-themed beauty include the wonderful in house self-winding automatic mechanical movement, pink gold oscillating weight, a power reserve of some 46 hours and Haute Horlogerie detailing including Cotes de Geneve finishing, circular graining and beveling. The watch dial itself of the Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 XXL Large Date and Moon Phases is of grey-tinted sapphire right to the bezel, as to is the watch’s case back, revealing all the beauty of the vintage XXL chronograph movement. This movement permits the large date to be displayed by virtue of two extremely thin, transparent discs, and to see such mechanics in an art deco-inspired watch is incredible. The moon phases are similarly beautifully displayed to the front of the watch’s dial display courtesy of two large moon phase discs in gold. Whether buying the Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 XXL Large Date and Moon Phases new or pre-owned, this watch is truly a thing of beauty from the Swiss brand that will stand the test of time.

The black titanium case of the Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 Earth to Sky Edition, just like the red gold case and stainless steel case version of other Vintage 1945 models, closely follows the art deco traditions of the Girard Perregaux watches from 1945 itself, with amazing curvature to both case and sapphire crystal dial. Having only recently been launched, buyers may well have trouble when they come to try to find the Girard Perregaux Vintage 1945 Earth to Sky Edition pre-owned at the moment, but in the meantime, pre-owned collectors are sure to want to add this model from the Swiss brand to their wishlist, if they would prefer not to simply add the item to their shopping basket new right now. Few would question the beauty of these watches, particularly handsome with either black or white dial face, the predominant use of black rather than brown for the alligator leather bracelet straps with matching clasp and the absence of diamond to get the look just right. It is important to take the time to find a seller that is right for the purchaser, be that a lady or gentleman. Any official seller will know all the different reference numbers, be able to answer any question, know the difference between the black and white dial models and offer a full variety of size options, and of course, supply an original watch complete with original box and papers. Shipping is usually not a problem for any experienced seller, and this can be arranged in seconds these days. If you do not have a preferred seller, always shop around for the best price and size options, only that way will the buyer, especially if she is a lady, really enjoy the true pleasure of owning a Vintage 1945 Black automatic wrist from the Girard-Perregaux Watches Vintage 1945 Automatic Watch Collection.
