Stepping into the millennium in the year 2000, Girard Perregaux revealed the brand’s new world time wristwatch, the WW.TC model (worldwide time control). Taking DNA from the brand’s Classique Elegance lineage, Luigi Macaluso, president of Girard Perregaux and former motor racing driver combined his vision with his passion for horology and motorsports. The creation was a 43 mm world time wristwatch with an added chronograph mechanism. The watch is moved by two opposite crowns, the two inner rotating ring of city and 24 hours can be adjusted on the get-go for modern jet-setters. Manufactured in solid white gold, the lot here offered is part of a very limited and exclusive edition for Ferrari. Only 25 pieces were available in white gold and this example is number 11, as testified by the engraving on the back. Produced in 2003 for the Italian market only, it features in the list of cities, Torino and Maranello instead of Paris. The initials of the GA beside the car on the back and dial, of course, in red, represents a tribute to Gianni Agnelli. On the dial are also the chronograph and GMT functions and a rotating bezel showing 25 cities with their respective time zones. The bezel is rotatable thanks to the crown positioned at 9 o’clock, screw-locked and personalized with the GP logo. The same goes for the winding crown at 3 o’clock, useful for winding, date and time setting. The back is secured by 6 screws and is engraved with the specifications and serial number of the special limited series. In the centre, a large flat sapphire crystal leaves the movement visible. Offered in excellent condition, this is a fantastic opportunity to own a limited edition Girard Perregaux’s vision of the world time and further personalized for Ferrari.
