Meet Girard-Perregaux WW.TC Chronograph Mondo Exploris Watch

Dec 02, 2011
Girard-Perregaux is glad to bring forth its new WW.TC Chronograph Mondo Exploris watch, strictly limited to just 8 pieces.

A collaborative project between the brand and the luxury magazine Caesar, the new Girard-Perregaux watch is interpreted in a three-body stainless steel case. Its satin-finished surface contributes to the aesthetic appeal of the model’s design. The case measures 43mm in diameter and 13.40mm in height.

The timepiece is equipped with a rounded bezel, two screw-down crowns at 3 and 9 o’clock as well as chronograph push-pieces at 2 and 4 o’clock. The bezel safely holds a top glare-proofed sapphire crystal. The sapphire glass is also used for the bottom of the case, engraved with AE & Mondo Exploris logos. The water-resistance of the model is assured down to 5 atm.

The new Girard-Perregaux WW.TC Chronograph Mondo Exploris watch is constructed around a manufactory-made self-winding mechanical Girard-Perregaux GP033C0 movement. Paved with 63 jewels, it operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides a 46-hour power reserve. The decorative elements of the mechanism include circular graining on a main plate, Cotes de Geneve motif on an oscillating weight bridges as well as blued steel screws.

The caliber animates a set of function, presented on a matt black "stepped" dial. It is completed with a luminous Arabic numeral at 12 o’clock, 8 round-shaped hour indexes and transferred Girard-Perregaux, Mondo Exploris and AE logos. The display indicates central hours and minutes by means of white baton hands. The small seconds tick away in a counter at 3 o’clock.

The chronograph features are presented through a 30-minute sub-dial at 9 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock as well as a central seconds hand. The date indication is arranged in an aperture between 1 and 2 o’clock. Additionally, the display offers a GMT function with an outer 24-city disc printed with Caesar. It is joined by a black and red 24-hour revolving ring.

The new Girard-Perregaux watch is delivered on a black alligator leather strap with a stainless steel folding buckle. The brand also supplies an extra rubber strap.
