A luxury watch is the quintessential statement of success and class; a combination of both function and style. For the man on the move and constant jet-setter, a watch almost becomes a burden with frequents time zone changes requiring regular adjustments. However, the WW.TC (world-wide time control) collection created by Swiss watch manufacturer, Girard-Perregaux, provides a simultaneous display of all time zones on its dial without losing its legibility. Along with offering a clear presentation of all time zones on its dial, the Girard-Perregaux WW.TC chronograph also supplies the date, small second, a chronograph function and a day/night indicator, a combination that results in an effortlessly elegant and incredibly practical watch with a sporty style and undeniable sophistication.
By contrasting black and white and using a pop of red key elements, the multi-level dial is organized to perfectly draw the eye in and allow for clearer viewing. Coupled with this, the figures, hours and minutes hands are further enhanced with a luminescent coating, and a day/night indicator that is easily identifiable. The WW.TC also contains a special ring with 24 names of cities for 24 times zones spaced perfectly around the dial. With this feature, the lucky wearer has a simple way to navigate through the endless maze of time zones. This masculine Girard-Perregaux mechanism has a round 43 mm in diameter steel case that is water-resistant to 30 meters (100 feet) and a sleek alligator skin strap with a folding steel clasp. The case is crafted from top-of-the-line stainless steel and is a hefty 13.4 mm thick, with both sides covered in scratch-resistant sapphire crystals with antireflective coatings.
With a measurement of 13 ligne this elegant device is built on 63 jewels with a full 46 hours of power reserve. Through the sapphire crystal case back the wearer is able to view the inner beauty and craftsmanship of the mechanism, with workmanship that is showcases the finest traditions of watchmaking with a circular-grained plate, the Côtes de Gen?ve embellished pattern, and steel screws that are blued. These timeless pieces can be purchased for $16,800 and are sure to rest comfortably on the wearer’s wrist for years to come.
