Traveller moonphases and large date from Girard-Perregaux

Girard-Perregaux announced the creation of a new family of timekeepers - Traveller, and this is one of the first members of the collection - the Traveller moonphases and large date.

Now when I saw the name, my thoughts first went to the Girard-Perregaux Traveller II which had an alarm and a second time zone feature.  But tin this instance the family name Traveller is not necessarily intertwined with telling time in different locations at the same time.

Hours, minutes, seconds, moonphase, large date and power reserve are indicated.  Here are the details:

  1. Not warming up to the new case design. Big fan of GPs and have 3, including Traveller II GMT/Alarm. The crown guard style and 44mm size are both deal breakers for me.
