This Stunning Girard-Perregaux 1966 WW.TC Reminds Us Of Better Times
Those of you with sophisticated tastes and the bank accounts to match are well aware that there is a wide array of options when you’re looking for a clean, reasonably sized, mechanical world-timing watch. But the gorgeous timepiece you’re about to see right now, the Girard-Perregaux WW.TC 1966, seems to be in a league of its own.
In an age of digitalization, this exquisite watch comes powered by an in-house movement, with a stunning 24-hour world time caliber. Set to be showcased for the first time at SIHH 2017, the WW.TC 1966 shows off a chic 40 mm case, paying tribute to the classic design cues found on pocket watches, while employing the brand’s GP03300 world time caliber.
The Girard-Perregaux 1966 WW.TC comes sans the date and the chronograph modules, with a rotating 24-hour disc, a small seconds subdial and a generous 46-hour power reserve acting as classy companions. The resulting clean design allows the wearer to see the movement through a sapphire glass case-back, finished off with contrasted graining, chamfering, and Côtes de Genève stripes.
If you’re wondering about costs, the Girard-Perregaux 1966 WW.TC should be on the affordable side, considerably cheaper to buy than the $16,000 starting price of the 2013 chronograph series – although, we’re not sure just yet.
