Vintage 1945 Lady

This is a very idealized version of  the Vintage 1945 with a brown lacquer dial featuring an inner chapter ring with 42 diamonds.  But it the diamond goodness doesn't stop there, with two sides of the bezel displaying 30 diamonds as well.

The case is stainless steel measuring  28.20 x 27.86 mm.  With an anti-reflective sapphire crystal on top, and a sapphire crystal display back.

But with Girard-Perregaux being a manufacturer, you always want to know about the movement -
Girard-Perregaux's GP02700-0003 is ticking away at a frequency of 28’800 Vib/h - (4 Hz).  It is 
a mechanical, self-winding movement, and boasts a power reserve of 36 hours.

It is available with either a stainless steel bracelet or a "chocolate" alligator strap.  I presume that "chocolate" refers to the color, and does not mean an actual "chocolate alligator".
