Girard-Perregaux 1966 Small Seconds and Date

Girard-Perregaux recently announced the 1966 Small Seconds and Date watch, available in two versions.  At 41mm, the pink gold case maintains the slightly larger case (+3mm) for the 1966 collection, as I first discussed last October (see: Girard-Perregaux 1966 41mm, Oct. 2012).  Along with the larger case size is the larger, automatic mechanical GP01890-0003 caliber with pink gold rotor, designed and made in the GP workshops.  A closer look at this pair of elegant wristwatches, below.

The first version is a brown dial with sun-brushed finish.

The second version has a silvered opaline dial.

A subtle detail of note is the outward sloping bezel.  This is complemented by the applied hour markers which, if you look closely, also have outward-sloping faceted ends.
