A must read for every watch lover, Hodinkee continues to serve up thoughtful reviews of all manner of timepieces from manufacturers large and small. Recently they took possession of the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Full Calendar white gold, and spent some quality time looking at this magnificent, yet subtle, piece.
The overall wearability of this white gold full calendar from GP is excellent. It fits under a cuff without any effort, and the lugs wrap wonderfully around the wrist. This is a very usable watch, with just the right dose of function and form.
HODINKEE is one of the most widely read wristwatch publications in the world. Launched in 2008 by then 25-year-old Benjamin Clymer, the site quickly gained notoriety for earnest looks at some of the industry’s most interesting, and occasionally forgotten, timepieces.
