Girard-Perregaux ww.tc “Dark Night”
Unveiled at this year’s Jewelers’ Circular Keystone (JCK) expo in Las Vegas, Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux has crafted this impressive ww.tc (world-wide time control) “Dark Night” timepiece — a certain ‘grail watch’ for any discerning aviator. The smooth 43mm case is crafted from both ceramic and rubber, and houses an in-house 63-jewel Swiss automatic movement that beats at 28,800 vibrations per hour, with a power reserve for up to 46 hours. The movement was custom designed for this model, featuring a flyback chrono used by pilots, while also displaying 24 time zones with day and night indicators. Sadly, while only 25 pieces of the Dark Night will be made available to the United States market, Girard-Perregaux has the companion “Shadow” edition available for their global markets.
