For 2013 Girard-Perregaux overhauls the ww.tc collection with a facelift that increases the size of the watch and brings the entire concept more into the brand’s modern era. Compared to the existing ww.tc (world wide time control) collection, this modern incarnation of the classic is welcome, but we wouldn’t strictly call it an upgrade so much as an evolution. It is more a revision that sits comfortably next to the previous ww.tc models that came before. You could easily own either or both and be satisfied. Let’s take a hands-on look.
While the ww.tc collection used to live on its own, the 2013 version now exists in the “Traveller” collection of watches. Which for the time being also includes the attractive, but not exactly travel-oriented Traveller Moon Phase. We debuted the new Girard-Perregaux Traveller collection of watches here. The newest ww.tc is very much built on the original. To an extent, we are happy that Girard-Perregaux employed the wisdom of “if it isn’t broken don’t fix it,” so what you have is something a bit larger and more modern for the wrist.
