To time universal well proportionate, discreet and mechanical Chronographs are never outdated – it’s what Girard-Perregaux proves once again with his new 1966 WW. TC. The 1966 collection already contains watches with dials in email, whirlpools, repetitions of the minutes as well as watches skeletons. In addition, a watch to time universal. This model is not just convenient for frequent travelers – it goes very well with a suit, does not, and combines a discreet appearance with impressive technique.
We have nothing against sports watches to time universal and most striking – Patek Philippe introduced a model this year in the world of watchmaking and the 2016 jewelry show in Basel and the watch from Seiko Prospex pleases us also – but a slightly elegant minimization can’t hurt.
Watches with a complication of machine time actually have advantages over the watches with other complications: they provide their information at a glance of it, without pushing any button and as soon as any what laptop (sorry Siri).
The case of the WW 1966. TC has been reduced to a diameter of 40 mm and Girard-Perregaux took all sport attributes – among others the chronograph. Thus, the manufacturer has created a wonderful dressed watch in which the universal time display has been realized in a discreet and elegantly alluring way. A peripheral ring surrounds the dial in two rows with the names of the cities that symbolize the time zones that correspond to them. The 24 hour display is placed on the inner ring and is responsible for the display of various time zones – with a different color for the day and night.
The second is 6 hours on a sub-dial. His blue needle and the only splash of color on the dial. Despite its small diameter and the complexity of views of the dial, Girard-Perregaux watch has managed to not overload it.
The 1966 WW. TC is powered by a movement manufacture Girard-Perregaux. It offers a generous 46 hours power reserve, beating at 28,800 alternations at the time.
This watch is complemented by a strap in alligator – and certainly in two versions: with a case rose gold or stainless steel.
