    Which Girard Perregaux WWTC

    Been thinking about purchasing a world timer and Ive pretty much settled on the GP. I found these two examples for about the same price, but Im having a hard time deciding.

    I prefer the panda dial on the steel model. I dont currently have a titanium watch, so the black dial could bring something different to my collection. I also like having the bracelet, as sourcing a steel bracelet may not be an easy task.

    Hard choice. Personally, I would go for the one that is the easiest to read (especially when the light is not great).

    Personally, I think world timers should stand on their own, so no chronograph complication. Therefore, I would suggest something like these:

    I totally agree with Arcadelt... I'd much prefer no chronograph on the world timer. That last one pictured is great.

    If you are inclined to go bracelet, then go bracelet. This isn't some dainty dress watch that requires a leather strap to look right; a bracelet makes this a much more versatile piece.

    With a bracelet, you never have to worry about sweating into it; you never have to worry about splashing it when you wash your hands; you never have to worry about getting caught out in the rain; and your long term maintenance costs are lower, as you never have to replace a stinky leather strap.

    Having noted that my stated preference is for a bracelet, my observed preference is for leather straps, as I own more watches with leather straps than metal bracelets. So I live these leather strap frustrations, but I continue to go back to the leather strap well, because there is just something about a beautiful watch on a leather strap.

    I have the titanium on a leather strap.

    I feel the white Chrono will be easier to read, and that white diail is gorgeous...
    But the Ti is more lighter...
    Good luck on this one

    Those GP worldtimers are a great choice. I've been eyeing these models for several years. I also prefer the less busy looks of the non-chrono versions, but if legibility isn't an issue, I'd get the panda.

    agree with this so much that I have the 2nd watch in this post. wwtc 1966 in leather strap. My advice is get that, but with the bracelet. the clasp on the leather wore and it stopped locking in place after a couple of months. the metal bracelet has a different clasp.

    Id go for the grey dial power reserve version that arcadelt posted. Chrono isnt necessary in this case unless you really want one. Also, I prefer when GP models only have the full brand name on the dial and not the GP Girard Perregaux duplication in such close proximity. Make it one or the other. Same applies to Audemars Piguet and other perpetrators.
