The Girard-Perregaux ww.tc is certainly one of the all time great travel watches in the “haute horlogerie” category. A virtual representative for the world time function, the ww.tc is useful, extremely intuitive to operate, and technically impeccable.
Perhaps my favorite variation of this Girard-Perregaux collection is the ww.tc Perpetual Calendar watch. In lieu of the chronograph, the world time and 24-hour displays are supplemented by a prestigious complication that keeps track of the day, the date, and the month – the complex mechanism automatically accomplishes date adjustments from month to month, and lets you know the leap year as well. A beautiful moonphase indicator unifies the elegant dial perfectly, its gold moon and stars contrasting the pleasing Foch of the cities of the world and 24-hour disc. It is also worth noting that the absence of chronograph pushpieces adds an additional measure of formality to an already classical design. As with other Girard-Perregaux ww.tc watches, the Perpetual Calendar can be easily adjusted to reflect your locale simply by turning the crown at 9 o’clock.
The great appeal of the ww.tc Perpetual Calendar is that there’s no need to choose between a practical complication and one which is in the “high prestige” category. With this timepiece, you get both, all in a wonderfully executed classical package of the highest quality.
