Black and white. Night and Day. World times. Flyback. The new ww.tc chronograph white ceramic shows its contrasts.

Bold: the white ceramic case set against the black rubber push buttons and crowns. Coordinated: the light-colored dial with its dark counters highlighting the time indicators. Unexpected: a smoked sapphire glass to reinforce the look of the piece. Adding to the effects of contrast, it vaunts its non-conformist side and underlines the creativity of the Manufacture’s designers and developers.
Behind the design, the last word in intelligent engineering. While the “world times” function displays all the time zones simultaneously, the date, the small seconds, the chronograph function with flyback and day/night indicator complete the information of this formidable timepiece: time flows, is measured and lived to the full, without compromise.
Visible through the case’s sapphire back, the manufacture movement GP3300-0028 sits inside a protective titanium housing, developed by Girard-Perregaux’s engineers. This self-winding 13’’’ caliber offers 46 hours of power reserve. All finishing was carried out by hand in the Manufacture’s purest tradition: the mainplate is pearled, the bridges and the oscillating weight are decorated with Geneva Stripes, and the screws are in blued steel.
The instantly eye-catching look of the ww.tc chronograph white ceramic is only rivaled by the excellence of what’s inside. Perfectly legible, perfectly functional, the watch asserts its difference in a style of its own, an avant-garde look which does not however depart from the collection’s intrinsic elegance. ■
