Girard-Perregaux may have been founded as a small workshop in 1791, but in modern watchmaking it has become synonymous with uniquely styled, but always beautifully crafted and functional luxury timepieces.
The unusually named ww.tc collection – short for “worldwide time control” – has long been an iconic line of watches for Girard-Perregaux. First introduced as a watch boasting the rare but convenient combination of a full world time indication and a 12-hour chronograph, the ww.tc was recently introduced in a slimmer, simpler format.
With the new 1966 ww.tc, Girard-Perregaux has refreshed its world time, having made it easier to use, as well as updated it with a sleeker design. Worry not, though, the updated 1966 ww.tc retains every bit of the original model’s striking aesthetic: now an elegant 40mm in diameter, some 3mm smaller than previous ww.tc chronographs, the new ww.tc is available in either steel or pink gold.
Long-time connoisseurs of Girard-Perregaux will quickly recognize how the ww.tc’s trademark secondary crown remains at nine o’clock, being the crown to control the world-time function while the crown for setting the time remains at its regular, three o’clock position.
Girard-Perregaux has also refreshed the ww.tc by giving the 1966 model a more classical bent, a restyling that serves to highlight the world time functionality of the watch by emphasising the cities disc.
Gone are the large luminous indices on dial, now replaced by straightforward baton markers. Additional changes such as the leaf-shaped hands and blued steel seconds hand, along with slimmer, streamlined case have cumulatively rendered the new 1966 ww.tc a more graceful timepiece that is no less timeless and lasting than its predecessors.
The GP3300 movement inside is automatic and in-house, allowing you to enjoy all its convenient functionality as you travel the world. The Girard-Perregaux 1966 ww.tc is a most complete package and fitting “Watch Of The Month”.
