2016 is a special year for Girard-Perregaux replica watches because it is the year the manufacture celebrates its 225th anniversary. This makes it one of the oldest watch brands in the world. To celebrate this momentous milestone, Girard-Perregaux has boldly deconstructed one of its most popular watches, the 1966 to come up with this cool new Girard-Perregaux 1966 Skeleton.
The “art of skeletonization” surely needs no introduction to most longtime watch fans. When done right – because there is no shortage of horrendously and cheaply executed specimens out there – it should provide a unique look into the construction of the movement, without sacrificing legibility, styling, or wearability. From design to execution, new Girard-Perregaux 1966 Skeleton fake watches are very time consuming process indeed – for both aesthetic, as well as structural reasons.
The former is rather obvious: you wouldn’t want to end up with a design monstrosity that tries too hard to impress; the latter on the other hand is another important factor to consider as it affects the movement’s reliability and durability. Whatever is left from the skeletonized movement must remain strong enough to withstand the rigors of daily wear.
So, when it comes to this Girard-Perregaux 1966 Skeleton version, things do look a bit inside out – but there is nothing wrong with that. Its 38mm-wide and just 9.27mm-thick case Girard-Perregaux copy watches in 18k rose gold looks effortlessly elegant and wears equally so – as the shots by our James Stacey testify – while the heavily skeletonized movement further enforces that vibe with its beautifully curved bridges and cutouts.
