The Traveller ww.tc from Girard-Perregaux

Yes, we've all seen the ww.tc from Girard-Perregaux but this one is a bit different!  This is the latest iteration of the classic world time model from GP and is a proud member of the newly launched Traveller collection.  Many of the design elements look familiar - most specifically the dial.  In an interesting layout, GP opted to have the date at 2 o'clock to avoid cluttering up the space between the registers.  This was a wise move, although it takes a bit of adjustment to adapt to the date being in a "foreign territory" it is far easier to read this way.

So here are the details direct from GP HQ:
