wristshot: Girard-Perregaux 9666 Quartz

Wristshot, 8th April: Something quite unusual on the wrist today. The Girard-Perregaux 9666 is a close cousin of the first Quartz from Girard-Perregaux, Ref 9444 but with a few quirks. It has the same first Quartz Caliber 351/352 and is from the backside actually a round watch while the case is an elliptical shape. However, the most unusual feature is the crown position at 7:30. I have no idea what the thinking behind the crown placement was, but I can say I really like this little quirk.
