The Swiss luxury watchmaking Manufacture, Girard-Perregaux based in la Chaux-de-Fonds, unveils a unique piece in order to support the 6th edition of the biennial charity auction for the benefit of research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Authentic artistic icon, the Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 XXL Large Date and Moon Phases Only Watch reveals for the first time a case in titanium DLC and a transparent dial carved in blue polycrystalline, a hint to the color of the Foundation's logo. Its genesis; a contemporary style, perfect symmetry and a mechanical manufactured movement.
At 12 o'clock, the large jumping date displays the date on a pair of discs one of which is transparent in an exclusive patented system of the brand. The moon phase indicator at 6 o'clock provides a perfect visual balance while the hands and the applied Arabic numerals indicates the hours in a sheer simplicity. The case-back side, open on the visible movement, features the emblematic signature of Only Watch.
