The ww.tc (World Wide Time Control) collection, created in the year 2000, has been constantly reinterpreted year by year. Its ability to instantly indicate the time anywhere in the world continues to be its main function, combined in this case with the classic Girard-Perregaux chronograph.
These functions are enclosed in a shotblast steel case of generous dimensions, having a 43 mm diameter. Under its sapphire crystal a world map unfolds with zones in contrasting shades and the Principality of Monaco as its center-point, revealing the world as seen by Zegg & Cerlati and illustrating this timepiece’s function of telling the time throughout the world. The duality of its colors reinforces the originality of this limited edition of the ww.tc, and showcases the complementary links between Tina Zegg and Carlo Cerlati. The carmine logo can be seen on the city ring, recalling Monaco’s traditional colors.
Finally, the vulcanized rubber strap gives this timepiece a robust and powerful character, underscoring its sporty and elegant profile.
The Girard-Perregaux ww.tc Zegg & Cerlati is limited to 15 pieces, and will be sold exclusively at the Zegg & Cerlati boutiques in Monaco.
