To honour 225 years in the business of making watches, the new Girard-Perregaux Stradale Chronograph made its debut at Baselworld 2016.
Neat styling, in-house technology and perfect proportions ensure that this Girard-Perregaux Stradale would make a fine acquisition if you're in the market for a classic sporty timer this year. It forms part of the company's new Sports Competizione collection of which there are two models, the Stradale and its honey-comb dialled brother the Circuito.
The detailing is subtle, but effective. Slightly recessed snailed counters rest on satin-brushed dials, hints of scarletenable quick time-reading and a sneaky little date window has been slipped in at 4 o'clock.
The 42mm cases have each been given a mirror-polished bezel, long curvy lugs, piston-pushers and just a hint of satin-brushing on the band. It is ultimately functional, but also incredibly stylish.
