Shot of the day: Girard-Perregaux 2550 Vintage 94

Posted by

Speaking of rectangular Art Deco watches… The other day I shared a couple of examples – the Girard-Perregaux Vintage 1945 and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso…

Another survivor to be mentioned would be the Cartier Tank…

Among the Girard-Perregaux historical models, the Vintage 1945 is probably the most well-known – if we leave the Three Golden Bridges Tourbillon out of the competition as it is in a class of its own…

But there were one before the Vintage 1945 which came back as a “one shot” production – the Vintage 94!

Released in 1994 which gave the name Vintage 94!

The case is a feast for the eye and on the wrist – so comfortable! The super-doomed plexi completes the arcs of the lugs…

Manual wound movement and good size… And a beautiful engraving on the back.

Here is a scan from the 1940 Girard-Perregaux catalogue featuring several rectangular Art Deco designed watches… Yes, the original “Vintage 94” and “Vintage 1945” were just T.W.O of many back then!

More Art Deco design to be reported – stay tuned!
