A year has hardly gone by and Girard-Perregaux is already updating this model. Guess they fear the timepiece might get jet-lagged, so introducing: Girard-Perregaux Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases and GMT.
First off, for those of you who own or saw last year’s model, this one has a transparent dial, which right away gives it another look. It seems showing the movement is a trend that is really in vogue for watchmakers, normally thru the caseback, but here they’ve made it see through on both ends. Though Girard-Perregaux achieves the transparent dial by the juxtaposition of two disks integrated into the caliber. So it seems your looking at the watch’s internal movement, when in fact you’re gazing at a 0.10mm transparent folanorm sheet. Either way it’s an interesting effect, further heightened by displaying the earth’s grid lines on the dial, for aesthetic reasons and keeping with the “traveler” motif.
The dial may be transparent but it’s still full of detail. It has a realistic moon-phase between the 7 and 8 o’clock position. A second time zone in a sub-dial between the 4 and 5 o’clock position. The Girard-Perregaux brand can be read extensively at the near the 9 o’clock index mark and has its initials “GP” under the 12 o’clock index mark. Just under that “GP” logo is a day-date display. The hands have super-LumiNova coating for telling time in the dark and it’s surrounded by a circular satin-brushed ring that marks the 60-seconds read by a small hand at the watch’s center.
This Girard-Perregaux Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases and GMT (references below) is in a 44m case with curvy lugs and a protruding crown. This model is powered by a GP 03300-0109 automatic caliber, with 35 jewels, and a power reserve of up to 46 hours. The watch is water resistant up to 100m (330 feet) and comes mounted to an alligator skin strap.
