While Girard-Perregaux's new Competizone Stradale is a completely new watch, it's a style that could easily be found on the wrist of a gentleman racer in the 1950s. It's timeless and elegant styling is inspired by their classic Club Italia watch, a timepiece that beautifully combined the sporty detailing of a chronograph in a watch that is right at home under a shirt cuff. 

Details include elongated lugs, a mix of polish and satin finishing, mushroom-style pushers, and an open case-back. The watch's movement is their GP03300-00122 automatic in-house with 46 hour power reserve. The movement is intricately finished with a ‘Côtes de Genève’ motif on the mainplate, bridges, and oscillating weight. The watch will be available with a silver or black dial on a brown alligator strap or steel bracelet.
