Girard Perregaux Vintage 1966 Enamel: White Gold or Rose Gold?

Jun 24, 2019,03:24 AM

Here you have the same dial, font, and hands. Only the color of the gold changes. 

Colder or warmer? Both are sublime. 

Personally, I prefer the white gold. But it is just a matter of taste. You can't really go wrong, here.

Only my opinion .....

but to me the white gold seems to enhance the striking beauty and clarity of the dial, whereas the other gold seems to detract from it. Like I say, only my opinion.

Gold all the long

Both watches are great but I prefer the Gold, it looks more luxury. But if you wish to keep a low profile then the white is preferable. Great looking timepiece!!! 💎

2-2. Thanks, Dave. [nt]

I think that beautiful dial looks a little washed out with the white gold...

The red gold provides better contrast, IMO. That is my preference. Can’t go wrong with either, though. Cheers Drew

this wonderful GP is about understatement....

I am usually do not have necessary a 'white metal' condition....I like both rose and yellow gold.... but in this case, the white gold fits better the 'understatement'....just my thoughts.

Both are so nice and present a good value IMO.

Very hard to choose. They both have their merits. The white gold is cool and discrete, but the enamel dial does add some sensuality. The rose gold is warm and more sensual. I prefer white metal, so I would go for that one. I do wish the bezel on this piec... 

6-6. Thanks, LS. [nt]

I share the thoughts about the bezel… It is too massiv. Think it was a compromise due to the small second position and the movement they had on the shelf… 🙄 What is the size of the watch?

One more vote for....
