It is deceptively simple and pretty. I think I actually prefer Girard-Perregaux's use of minimalism over a brand like Vacheron Constantin. This is their 1966 Perpetual Calendar watch with an automatic in-house movement and also a moon phase indicator. A lovely thing in 18k white or rose gold. Don't be fooled by its demure looks, it still costs around $50,000.
I agree that Gp is a more interesting brand than VC.....though I wouldnt probably buy this watch (my dream watch is the limited blue dialed version of the Breguet XX/XXI Aeronavale chrongraph.....which i would for certain kill for), its still a very tasty piece. And Ive always found GP to somehow capture the perfect mid-place between elegance and function. Just my opinion, but I think this is a very nice watch.
