Girard-Perregaux presents an exceptional limited edition as part of its ww.tc world time collection for Thomas Erber’s second Cabinet de Curiosités.
For the occasion, Girard-Perregaux’s emblematic world time chronograph has opted for a style based on contrasts. It is housed for the first time in a white ceramic case that sets off the black rubber coating of the crowns and push pieces. To add a note of mystery, the Manufacture has chosen a smoked sapphire glass, making this ww.tc Cabinet de Curiosités 2011 edition series even more unique.
The sapphire glass reveals the white dial and the model’s various functions. The colour red is used to draw attention to the chronograph second hand and the divisions of the three counters, as well as to highlight London – where the event will be held – on the ring indicating the cities.
The enigmatic style of the ww.tc Cabinet de Curiosités continues on the case-back, with its tinted sapphire glass displaying the self-winding Girard-Perregaux GP03387 movement. This famous calibre, specially created for the ww.tc collection, combines simultaneous display of the date, small second and world time zones with a fly-back chronograph. It is housed inside an inner protective shell in ultra-resistant titanium, specifically created by the Manufacture’s engineers.
The Girard-Perregaux ww.tc Cabinet de Curiosités is limited to five pieces and will be on show exclusively at Browns in London from November 21 2011.
