from/my/collection: Girard-Perregaux Richeville Chronograph 27650

I have shown quite a bit my Girard-Perregaux Richeville Chronographs from the first tonneau generation, Chronographs 2710 and 2750 and even recently, the Richeville Ladies Chronograph 2650. So time to look at the second and thus far last generation of Richeville Chronographs, the Reference 27650.

Again, this Richeville Chronograph came in a large variety of case materials and dials. The case has grown quite a bit but at the same time also became more curved. Most notably, the second generation now has 3 sub-registers and a date window at 4:30 h. The date window is probably an unwelcome addition as it breaks the symmetry and on the darker dials the date stands out.

T.W.O versions of the 27650 Richeville are from/my/collection. A reverse panda with black dial and silver sub-dials and an all silver dial, although here, the dial is slightly cream coloured with silver sub-dials. As with most collections, they evolve over time and I no longer own the two Richeville 27650 Chronographs, but to demonstrate how much of a versatile collection the modern Richeville line is, here is a little collage of Richevilles.
