Girard-Perregaux Steel Chronograph

Created in 2000, the (world wide time control) collection quickly became one of the Girard-Perregaux Manufacture’s iconic lines, combining sophisticated style with watchmaking expertise. Its “world time” function provides a simultaneous display of all time zones on its dial.

The secret of its exclusive system is a coupling mechanism used for driving a ring displaying the time for 24 time zones, represented by the same number of cities. The hour ring has a day/night contrast function which makes it easier to read.

The original model in this collection, the chronograph is available in a new steel version. The case is entirely satin-finished and has a matt black “stepped” dial, which has been subtly reworked in the same style, playing with the contrasts of black and white; the 24-hour ring has been redesigned with two arrows showing its direction of rotation, and new baton-style hands indicate the hours and minutes.

The case, in stainless steel, measures 43mm x 13.4mm. It has double sapphire crystals and is water resistant to 50 meters.

Movement is the Swiss automatic Girard-Perregaux in-house caliber GP033C0 with 63 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 46 hours. It features circular graining on the main plate, Cotes de Geneva finish on the bridges and rotor, and blued steel screws.

Functions are hours, minutes, small second, date, world time with day/night indicator, and chronograph.

It comes in a matt black alligator strap or on a satin finish steel bracelet.
