Limited exclusively to 10 pieces in red gold and 10 in white gold, this 1966 Chronograph “Doctor’s Watch” will be offered exclusively at Dubail boutique at Place Vendôme in Paris. This obviously ‘retro’ watch is different from other GP 1966 chronos on a few counts including (most prominently) the bold orange circle, font style, and of course presence of pulsometer scale. As I’ve discussed in the past, I am a fan of pulsometers / pulsographe watches and the nostalgia they bring to me. We’ll take a closer look at this watch — and an original from the 1940s, below.
Girard-Perregaux 1966 Chronograph “Doctor’s Watch” for Dubail
40mm white or red gold case, automatic mechanical manufacture caliber GP030C0
Note also the proximity of the chrono counters to the center of the dial — and contrast it with what is perhaps one of the sources of inspiration for this piece, an original 1949′s Girard-Perregaux Doctors Watch:
