An Introduction About The Replica Girard Perregaux Competizione Chronograph Line

GP_HD_Competizione_PR

Replica Girard Perregaux was known for their racing chronographs, produced in the 1950s and 1960s, which were loved for the simplified case design and overall balance. With the Competizione Line, you can get that same vintage feel in a 42mm case. The Line has two versions, the Stradale and the Circuito. Both are essentially the same watch (same size case and same automatic movement with 46-hour power reserve) however one is made of steel (the Stradale with silver or black dial) and the other, titanium and carbon composite (the Circuito with honeycomb dial).

Replica Girard Perregaux had a pretty big year at Baselworld in 2016, releasing watches such as the 1966 Dual-Time and the Esmerelda Tourbillon, but one we haven’t talked about yet is the new Competizione Line of vintage-inspired chronographs. Within this new line, GP released two new watches – the Stradale and the Circuito.

The watch is powered by the GP03300 reference caliber automatic movement and is available with a black or silver dial (as mentioned earlier) and with a bracelet or alligator strap.The Stradale plays to the classicist collector, with its traditional lines and appearance. It features three-registers for constant seconds, 30-minute and 12-hour registers. Furthermore the date window (for all you date lovers out there) is nestled in between the constant seconds and 12-hour register at four o’clock.

The Circuito is the edgier version in the collection and features the same 42mm case in titanium and carbon composite. It has a black honeycomb dial with red accents and same register-date layout, along with the same automatic movement. This watch retails for $13,400 while the Stradale retails for $9,800 (with strap) and $10,500 (with bracelet) and are availble now.
