This latest creation from Girard-Perregaux features three watch complications housed in a case with contemporary dimensions and a 44 mm diameter, and available in either stainless steel or pink gold. For the first time in the Traveller collection, the metallic gray sapphire dial subtly reveals its finest display at 12 o’clock, in the form of the large date mechanism. This mechanism is the subject of an exclusive Girard-Perregaux patent. It is a sophisticated device made up of two superimposed disks incorporated into the GP03300 automatic caliber. The juxtaposition of the disks, one of which has pieces made of transparent folanorm with a thickness of only 0.10 mm, ensures an aesthetically perfect display in which there is no visible separation between the two disks.
The most outstanding of these complications, the moon phase indication is perfectly represented by an impressive metallic treatment. A further subtle detail of this model is that the moon phase indication is directly attached to the barrel, thus allowing for a very high degree of accuracy. Adjusted by a corrector button situated at 8 o’clock, it is surrounded by a circular satin-brushed ring and features a small second hand at its center.
Positioned between 4 and 5 o’clock, the information about the second time zone is cleverly merged with the moon phase indicator. The timepiece’s highly accurate dial clearly fulfills its role as a subliminal invitation to travel. The influence of the meridians highlights its impressive volume. While the lines of the earth’s parallels merge into the sapphire crystal, the beveled applied hour-markers give an added richness of detail and interplay of light.
Water-resistant at up to 100 meters, the satin-brushed and polished case protects from external contact a GP 03300-0109 automatic manufacture caliber. Visible through the transparent case-back, the automatic movement reveals an oscillating weight inspired by the shape of the Girard-Perregaux tourbillon bridge. With 35 jewels and a 46-hour power reserve, the mechanism has a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour for maximum accuracy. Available with an alligator skin strap, this new model is attached to the wrist by a folding clasp that is a perfect combination of elegance and sportiness.
