Not only does it display the world time, but this timepiece is specifically designed with the discerning trader in mind, providing information on the trading hours of key financial markets such as Hong Kong, New York, London, and Tokyo.

    - In addition to its world time feature, the watch also boasts a chronograph and date function, exemplifying Girard-Perregaux's commitment to preserving their rich horological tradition by creating truly exceptional mechanical timepieces.

    - Crafted in a variety of materials, the current iteration of the watch is encased in versatile stainless steel and is limited to just 500 pieces. Among this limited edition, the current lot is numbered 30, which remains virtually unworn and comes complete with all its accompanying accessories. This makes it an exceedingly desirable collectible for international traders who appreciate the combination of mechanical prowess and stylish wristwear.

    - Please note that the proceeds of the sale of the present watch will be given by the Consignor to various charities.

  • Artist Biography

    Girard Perregaux

    Swiss • 1791

    Celebrating its 225th anniversary in 2016, the company earned its fame as the first vertically integrated Swiss watchmaking company, manufacturing high-grade movements, cases and dials within its premises. Particularly noteworthy are the brand's three-gold-bridge tourbillon pocket watches built by Constant Girard beginning in 1867 — considered amongst the most beautiful movement architectures ever made. An active participant in Switzerland's observatory chronometry competitions, the brand won so many precision awards that they were excluded from competing in 1901.

    Key models include nineteenth and twentieth century pocket watches with three gold bridges, modern tourbillon wristwatches with three gold bridges, minute repeating pocket and wristwatches, as well as sport watches such as the Laureato and Sea Hawk.
