Girard-Perregaux – Financial

Here is a timepiece for those who follows the trading hours of world’s leading stock exchanges. The – Financial by Girard-Perregaux is the world’s first chronograph to indicate the different times around the world as well as the hours when four stock markets – New York, London, Hong Kong and Tokyo – are open for business.

This original and ingenious marriage between technology and aesthetics depends on two mobile discs around the dial: a 24-hour ring is synchronised with the hour hand. A second disc can be adjusted with the crown at 9 o’clock; it displays the names of the twenty-four cities and the periods when the four bourses are open for business. When the red pointer on the hour ring is opposite one of these periods, that particular market is open.

In keeping with the Brand’s passion for detail, the – Financial has been perfectly designed. The hour ring features a day/night contrast, making it easier to read, and harmonises with the silver or anthracite dial.

The large gold case, 43 mm in diameter, houses Girard-Perregaux GP033C0 automatic mechanical movement. This sophisticated mechanism can be admired through an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. Two limited, individually-numbered series are also available for ardent steel-case enthusiasts.
