As the Girard-Perregaux website states, their latest timepiece, the WW.TC Chronograph is the last word in intelligent engineering. The white ceramic case is contrasted by black rubber detailing and the light-colored dial is juxtaposed delightfully with dark counters that emphasize the time indicators; furthermore, the sapphire glass is smoked to provide an extra layer of detail highlighting the uniqueness of the contrasting yet esthetically pleasing details.
All time zones are displayed on the watch; functioning with flyback, the timepiece also displays the date and small seconds. Inside a protective casing of titanium, the chronograph’s manufacture movement GP3 300-0028 can be seen through the sapphire glass back of the case. The self-winding mechanism features a power reserve of 46 hours.
The finishing details of the timepiece are done by hand, and flourishes include a pearled mainplate, bridges and oscillating weights done in Geneva Stripes, and screws of blued steel.
While the watch is certainly practical and functional with its easy to read information, it is still a very avant-garde timepiece that maintains a high degree of elegance making it a suitable timepiece for any occasion.
Other technical specifications of the watch are a white ceramic case with a steel and white ceramic bezel, 43 mm diameter, and water resistance down to 100 meters. The mechanism vibrates at a 28,800 vibrations per hour, and the watch comes with a black rubber strap and titanium folding clasp. There are only 20 WW.TC Chronographs available and each will retail for $25,900.
