Girard-Perregaux’s iconic world time complication, the ww.tc is for the first time is available in the most stylish collection of urban watches from the Maison: 1966.
With 80 patents to its name, Girard-Perregaux now encompasses the full range of watchmaking skills, from movement development through to finishing operations. The ww.tc holds a place of its own within this prestigious context. Perpetuating the noble tradition of short-time measurement and custodian of significant Fine Watchmaking expertise, the Manufacture is indeed one of the rare few to have combined the chronograph and world time functions. This association gave rise to the ww.tc, the abbreviation for World Wide Time Control. Its two characteristic crowns on either side of the case soon made it one of the brand’s most iconic models.
The transparent case-back reveals a mechanism meticulously straight-grained, chamfered, circular-grained and adorned with Côtes de Genève. The Girard-Perregaux 1966 ww.tc is available in two versions: one in pink gold with a black alligator leather strap; and the other in steel.
