In 2014 Girard-Perregaux introduced the Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT, a classy GMT watch specific to worldwide vacationers and frequent flyers. We authored about this here.
Girard-Perregaux presents the Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT inside a re-creation having a transparent dial which discloses the big date mechanism.
This new Girard-Perregaux watch features three watch complications: large date, moon phases and 2nd time zone.
A patented solution, the big date mechanism consists of two superimposed disks built-into the in-house calibre. The juxtaposition from the disks, such as acquired from the transparent Folanorm sheet having a thickness of just .10 mm, guarantees a visually perfect display by which there’s no visible separation backward and forward disks.
Situated between 7 and eight o’clock, the moon phase representation is very realistic because of a unique metallic treatment. Within this watch the moon phase indication is directly connected to the barrel for any greater amount of precision. Modified with a corrector button situated at 8 o’clock, it’s encircled with a circular satin-blown ring featuring a little second hand at its center.
The data concerning the second time zone is supplied with the sub-dial between 4 and 5 o’clock using the lines from the Earth’s parallels merged in to the azure very to focus on this helpful function.
Water-resistant at as much as ten atmospheres (roughly 100 meters / 330 ft), the satin-blown and polished situation in steel or pink gold having a 44 mm diameter along with a thickness of 12.10 mm houses the GP 03300-0109 automatic calibre.
Visible with the transparent situation-back, the movement guarantees 46 hrs of energy reserve and beats in a frequency of 28,800 oscillations each hour.
Matched up for an alligator skin strap, the brand new Girard-Perregaux Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT includes a cost of Swiss Francs 18,250 / Euro 17,800 / US$ 18,000 in stainless (ref. 49655-11-231-BB6A) or Swiss Francs 34,900 / Euro 34,000 / US$ 34,000 in pink gold (ref. 49655-52-232-BB6A).
