For Only Watch 2015, Girard-Perregaux produced a one-off Vintage 1945 XXL with Large Date and Moon Phase in a titanium DLC case with a blue polycrystalline transparent dial.

This rectangular timepiece comes in a case measuring 36.10 mm x 35.25 mm by 11.74 mm thick. At twelve o’clock is a large jumping date indicator which displays the date on a pair of discs, one of which is transparent, and is the subject of a patent. A moon phase indicator combined with a continuous small seconds function sits at six o’clock. Arabic hour numerals and indexes have been applied to the dial, along with a printed minute track.

Powering the watch is automatic in-house caliber GP03300-0105 which runs at 4Hz, has 282 components (32 jewels) and a 46-hour power reserve. Functions include hour, minute, small second, large date and moon phases. (Ref. 25882-21-1544BH4A)

An open caseback offers a view of the movement and is signed with an “Only Watch” on the sapphire crystal. Water-resistance is 30 meters. This unique timepiece is presented with a black alligator leather strap with blue stitching and a DLC-treated steel buckle.
