Did you really like (and want) the special piece unique watch that Girard-Perregaux had auctioned at the 2011 Only Watch Auction? If so (and you weren't that one person to get it), then you sort of have another chance. Aside from the smoked sapphire crystal dial, this limited edition of just five pieces Girard-Perregaux ww.tc Cabinet de Curiosités watch has the same cool style with the white ceramic and titanium case. This is essentially the white version of the ww.tc Shadow watch that is part of their regular production right now. They do ceramic cases very well.
I wonder what this would look like on a while strap? How about a black and white striped NATO strap.... interesting thoughts. Limited to just five pieces, this watch is part of a unique series of relationships. The ww.tc Cabinet de Curiosities will be available exclusively at a concept store called Browns in London. I am not familiar with it, but it is said to be a lot like Colette in Paris.
Girard-Perregaux is actually working with a guy named Thomas Erber, who produced the Cabinet de Curiosities event. Last year it was actually at Colette, and it will be held at Browns this year in London. This watch (among whatever else will be there) will only be available from November 21st - December 23rd.
The ww.tc Cabinet de Curiosities watch is 43mm wide and contains the Girard-Perregaux in-house made caliber GP03378 automatic chronograph movement. This fantastic movement has a flyback chronograph, time, date, and special 24 hour disc that is used with a rotating bezel to offer a world time function. The overall ww.tc collection is among the finest world time watches around. I do quite enjoy this special version with the white ceramic case. I saw the Only Watch 2011 model in person and it looked fantastic. Not sure how this smoked dial version will turn out, but it should be cool as long as legibility is maintained. How much will this limited edition of five ww.tc Cabinet of Curiosities watch by Girard-Perregaux watch cost? Price is 17,900 British Pounds.
