Girard-Perregaux ww.tc chronograph

Controlling the world

The Watch Quote™ - September 6th, 2012



Although one of Girard-Perregaux’s great classics, the chronograph ww.tc keeps up with the times. Combining practicality, design and technical sophistication, the main feature of the dial is contrast, an approach that highlights the watch’s strength of character and complexity while at the same time offering perfect legibility.

There is no doubt, time is complex. And so is the iconic Girard Perregaux ww.tc chronograph. The world time function provides a simultaneous display of all time zones on its dial, as well as date and small second, a chronograph function and a day/night indicator. In order to achieve even clearer legibility, Girard-Perregaux has improved the dial details and accentuated the color contrasts. Legibility benefits from a thoughtfully laid out dial, with the temporal information well-arranged and organized.



The result is a supremely practical watch with a more sporty style, while still retaining the elegance and sophistication that characterize the collection. The silver-finish multi-level dial excels itself in its coloring contrasting black and white, while red focuses the eye on the key elements. The indices, figures and hours and minutes hands are enhanced with a luminescent material. The day/night indicator is instantly identifiable, as are the chronograph counters which are finished in black.

The steel case, 43 mm in diameter and water resistant to 30 metres, houses a Manufacture GP033C0 movement which combines a chronograph and a world time indicator. Its exclusive system is based on a coupling mechanism featuring a ring that indicates 24 time zones for 24 named cities. This 13’’’ automatic winder caliber has a 46 hour power reserve. The workmanship, visible through the sapphire crystal case back, is hand finished in the purest traditions of watch-making: the plate features circular graining, the bridges and oscillating weight host the Côtes de Genève embellishment, and the steel screws are blued.
