Girard-Perregaux 1966 Full Calendar

1966 Full Calendar is a wristwatch by Girard-Perregaux.

The Girard-Perregaux 1966 collection reminds of the many innovations of the manufacture during the 1960 years, for example the development of a mechanical precision movement with the then unheard amplitude of 36,000 A/h in 1965, which in the following year was awarded the Centenary Prize of the Neuchâtel Observatory.

The model 1966 Full Calendar offers an exceptional elegance and fineness: dial and case are pure beauty and represent the best properties of the classic watch. The fine gilded hands, two windows arranged side by side at the 12 to display the day of the week and month. The moon continues its run at the 6, framed by the date display.

The complication of the full calendar, which is somewhere between ordinary date display and perpetual calendar, is also called annual calendar.
