Girard-Perregaux’s 1966 collection was first introduced in 2006 which until now has included only an automatic watch with date, and a complete calendar watch with moon phase indication and annual calendar. Now for release in 2010 Girard-Perregaux has developed an exciting and elegant new 1966 timepiece, the two-counter chronograph. It is estimated that the price for the 1966 Chronograph will be in the $25,000 USD range. Featuring the 3030C0 column-wheel chronograph movement developed and produced completely by the Girard-Perregaux. The self-winding movement beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and is made up of 304-component. It has a centrally-mounted rotor made from 18 carat gold that winds the mainspring in a single direction of rotation. The movement allows for a 36-hour power reserve.

The 1966 Chronograph features has a high polished 40 mm case which will be available in both 18 carat pink and white gold. The polished bezel surrounds a sapphire crystal that protects the dial. The pink gold model has a silver finished dial that displays the vintage style chronograph. The hour and minute hands are leaf shaped while the chronograph counter and central chronograph hands are crafted in blued steel. The case-back has another sapphire crystal window which reveals the stunning Girard-Perregaux manufacture caliber. The model is completed by a strap produced from alligator leather with a ardillon buckle in pink or white gold decorated with the Girard-Perregaux signature.
