This year’s SIHH theme at Girard-Perregaux was black and dark blue and tagged Earth-to-Sky. There is a lot of potential and we have seen some amazing creations like the Cosmos. On the entry level end, Girard-Perregaux brought us a Earth-to-Sky edition of its 1966 time-only model, Ref 49555.
Steel case with black finishing and a dark blue sunburst dial. Hmm, I will be very honest, I don’t think the black theme goes well with the 1966 line. Laureato yes, that’s a sports watch line, but the 1966 has always been a precious metal dominated dress watch line. I think we could have been happy without a black version.
