Girard-Perregaux Traveller WW.TC Titanium DLC and Pink Gold
This year, Girard-Perregaux presented several new variations of its iconic Traveller WW.TC, using titanium or pink gold. If the pink gold versions are intended as a tribute to their past — 1860 François Perregaux had become the first Swiss watchmaker to settle in Japan on a long-term basis so as to develop his business interests there — the Titanium DLC has a more contemporary allure.
The “world times” function displays time in all 24 time zones into which the planet is divided. Each zone is represented on the flange of the dial by the name of a major city located within it. The time can then be read by means of a rotating ring placed on the dial’s inner edge. Displaying numbers from 1 to 24, it makes a complete rotation once every 24 hours. Displaying numbers from 1 to 24, it makes a complete rotation once every 24 hours. Its background colouring is divided into two halves, one light-toned and featuring the sun and the other black with a crescent moon, providing a day/night indication.
In addition, the Traveller WW.TC comes with a chronograph function too, with a large central second and date display, shown in a window highlighted by a border at 1:30.
The 44 mm case contains 30 different elements, the dial is protected by a sapphire crystal, just as the see-trough case back. Inside you’ll find the GP03300 automatic movement, with 46 hours of power reserve, a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 HZ) and offers hour, minute, small second, chronograph and date functions as well as world times with day/night indicator.
