    All around the world : Girard Perregaux Traveller WW.TC Titanium DLC

    The Girard Perregaux Traveller WW.TC (which stands for Worldwide Time Control) was first introduced in 2000, and as complications go, it is certainly one of the more useful one for hour by hour international dealings in the modern world. The latest version, in Black DLC coated Titanium, opts for an intense black look. And offers world times and chronograph functions.


    The world time function enables the wearer to instantly know the time anywhere in the world. Its chronograph function, with its coal black hue and its specially rubber treated alligator textured strap highlight its sporting and technical character.


    The centre of the dial in the Traveller WW.TC Titanium DLC watch features a three-dimensional representation of the latitudes and longitudes covering the Earth. Uniformly black, this serves as a backdrop to the hours and minutes displays. Both the hands and the hour-markers feature luminous coatings to make them easily visible day and night. The tri-compax style chronograph is equipped with a bright red central seconds hand, with its minutes and hours marked by two separate counters at 9 o'clock and 6 o'clock.


    Practical and easy to read, the world time function is displayed on the perimeter of the dial thanks to a inner ring indicating both the hours and the periods of day and night. The ring is constantly in motion and completes a full revolution in 24 hours.

    An outer second ring is static, and shows the world’s 24 different time zones. The time in a particular place can be read instantly thanks to the numeral next to the city concerned. The single crown at 3 o’clock can control all its functions.


    Featuring 30 different parts, the 44mm diameter case is carved out of titanium, chosen for its toughness and light weight. The deep black colour achieved with a special diamond-like carbon surface treatment. With the dial protected by a wide, highly resistant sapphire crystal, the case back is held in place by 6 screws and also includes a sapphire crystal aperture to reveal the watch's caliber.


    The in-house GP03300 self-winding mechanical movement was developed by Girard-Perregaux engineers and watchmakers. Produced, assembled and adjusted at the Manufacture, it includes 476 different parts. The movement has a 46-hour power reserve, and beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour with minute, small second, chronograph and date functions as well as world times with day/night indicator.


    The GP Traveller WW.TC Titanium DLC retails for EUR 17,100 inclusive of tax.

    Awesome piece but that price point is such a bad deal

    There certainly would be a lot of wrist presence, but I'd be leery because black titanium would seemingly be pretty easy to scratch...

    I guess a lot more folks travel these days. Seems every time I turn around, someone else is offering a new GMT/dual time watch. The upside being at least the "power reserve" rage may have tamed and we are being offered an actual complication instead of a feature that has nothing to do with time. LOL.

    All the best.
