Girard Perregaux Blue Moon

This Blacked Out Watch Is a Stealthy Take on a Traditional Complication


July 10, 2019 Watches By

Lately we’ve seen several more inventive takes on the moon phase display come across our desks, including this fun example from Christopher Ward.

Girard Perregaux’s latest creation features a more traditional moon phase layout with pointer date display, but the 40mm steel case is conspicuously black DLC-coated, making for a badass, stealthy look. Slotting into the 1966 Collection, the Blue Moon features a blue and black dial, a thin leaf handset, an automatic movement beating at 4Hz and a matte alligator strap with blue topstitching.

If you like the look of a classically inspired moon phase display but yearn for something more…tactical? This could be your move. Pricing is CHF8,950, or ~$9,033.
