Girard-Perregaux the 1966 Chronographe «Doctor’s watch» Limited Edition for Retailer Dubail
Girard-Perregaux is introducing a very limited edition version of its 1966 Chronograph meant to recall the doctor's watches of the early twentieth century. This new watch takes the basic 1966 Chronograph and adds a pulsometer scale for taking a patient's pulse. Available in only twenty examples at Parisian retailer Dubail.
At first glance, there doesn't seem to be much difference between this limited edition doctor's watch and the other 1966 chronographs. But, you'll notice that the bright orange seconds register sits further from the case edge, closer to the center of the dial, and along the outer rim is a pulsometer scale. Much as a tachymeter scale helps a driver calculate speed, this lets a doctor quickly determine a patient's heart rate. Whatever number the seconds hand points to after the doctor counts 30 heart beats is the patient's heart rate. It's a simply calculation, but one that can save valuable time in emergencies.
