Swiss luxury watch brand Girard-Perregaux unveils a special edition timepiece featuring titanium oxide case, from its ww.tc line for Only Watch 2011 Charity Auction.
Clad in black and white, and underlining with a hint of red its attachment to the charitable initiatives from the Principality of Monaco, the Girard-Perregaux ww.tc Only Watch 2011 is the expression of unique elegance.
This model combines ultimate style with the Girard-Perregaux tradition of innovation, which for this special piece proposes a rare combination of materials and a high-tech structure.
The House’s engineers have for the first time used ultra-light titanium oxide to produce the white single-piece watch-case middle of the ww.tc Only Watch 2011. This first-ever feat was then combined with the forty parts making up the case itself, including a ceramic bezel and a titanium internal protective container.
This innovative frame houses the precious Girard-Perregaux GP03387 self-winding movement consisting of over 450 parts. This calibre combines the simultaneous display of the date, small seconds, world times and a “fly-back” chronograph.
Finally, to confirm the uniqueness of the ww.tc Only Watch 2011, the Manufacture has chosen a case-back in smoked sapphire crystal, thus revealing its savoir-faire put to use in favour of this great cause.
