Why We Love it

The late 1960s, early 1970s were sort of like the Wild West, horologically speaking.  Brands were leaving their traditional beats, experimenting with new designs and complications. 1970s fashion had injected itself into the marketplace, making room for bright colors and large cushion cases, allowing for fresh takes on well-worn deigns.  

Just about every Swiss manufacture pulled out the stops during the '70s, making watches from this era some of the most interesting vintage pieces on the market today. Sadly, with the 1970s also came the Quartz Crisis, which buried a good portion of the Swiss watch industry. Smaller brands that couldn't compete with cheap, plentiful, battery-powered watches were swept away or absorbed by larger firms and conglomerates.  

While Girard-Perregaux was never forced to close its doors, the production of its mechanical timepieces was significantly affected by the advent of quartz. Interestingly, the brand produced its first quartz watch in 1970, a feat that would become a harbinger of the next few decades of the manufacture's focus.  

Ultimately, GP produced a fair number of quartz watches, setting industry standards along the way. That said, its chronographs of the mechanical, pre-Crisis variety remain most desirable and collectable. 

This piece, an Olimpico Chronograph Reference 9075, dates back to the 1960s and features a radially brushed, 39mm stainless steel case with a rotating, elapsed-time bezel; recessed, barrel chronograph pushers; and an unsigned crown. 

The reverse-panda dial features a triple-register display with a 30-minute totalizer at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour totalizer at 6 o’clock, and a running seconds display at 9 o’clock. The dial is treated to flashes of orange accents from its pulsations scale, subdial, and center chronograph ‘syringe’ seconds hand, offering just the right amount of contrast to an otherwise monochrome look. Rounding out the dial’s features is a matching handset and ‘exclamation’ indices — which by the way, have developed a cream patina — as well as a peripheral tachymeter scale.

Powered by a manually-wound Girard-Perregaux chronograph movement with column wheel, this piece is dressed to the nines with a Ralstra Nero Black Desk Diver leather strap with a matching steel pin buckle. 

On the hunt for a mid-century mechanical chronograph with the right amount of riz? These black-dialed, cushioned-cased variations of the Olimpico Chronograph don’t pop up too often, and frankly, they're the best looking out of the Ref. 9075 bunch.
