Girard-Perregaux - Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT

The new Traveller Large Date, Moon Phases & GMT from Girard-Perregaux is conceived as a companion for international travelers and frequent fliers.


The case has a large diameter of 44 mm and a slim bezel in order to offer optimal legibility of the indication-rich dial, decorated with an outlined pattern inspired by the Earth's interlocking meridians and parallels.


The large date is positioned just below the GP logo at 12 o'clock using a patented mechanism which displays the date without separating the two numerals that make up the figure: the tens disk is opaque while the numerals representing the units are positioned on a transparent disk that is only 0.10 mm thick, just like a piece of paper.


The information relating to the second time-zone are indicated in the counter situated between 4 and 5 o'clock, while – symmetrically positioned between 7 and 8 o'clock – the continuous seconds counter also provides the indication of the current moon phase. The moon is metal-plated with a multiplicity of shades of gray on top of an extremely thin disk.



Available in steel with opaline silver dial (ref. 49655-11-132-BB6A), pink gold with eggshell dial (ref. 49655-52-131-BB6A) or pink gold with galvanic black dial (ref. 49655-52-631-BB6A), the case is water resistant to 100 metres / 330 feet and protects the GP03300-0093 self-winding manufacture calibre, visible through the transparent case-back.


Equipped with 35 jewels and a 46-hour power reserve, this movement beats at 28,000 vibrations per hour and is nicely finished with an oscillating weight inspired by the shape of the Girard-Perregaux tourbillon bridge.

Girard-Perregaux also presented a 50-piece limited edition as a tribute to John Harrison (1693-1776), a self-educated English carpenter and clockmaker recognized as the inventor of the marine chronometer, a long-sought after device for solving the problem of establishing the East-West position or longitude of a ship at sea, which revolutionized and extended the possibility of safe long-distance sea travel.

The problem was considered so complex, and following the Scilly naval disaster of 1707 so important, that the British Parliament offered the Longitude prize of twenty thousand pounds sterling – a considerable sum for the day. The prize was a tempting one for Harrison. Making a sea-going timekeeper that could keep accurate time to claim the prize became his life-long work. Although the main prize was never actually assigned, to all intents and purposes, Harrison had been the main winner and was awarded £8,750.

His invention would not only prove that longitude could indeed be calculated by the use at sea of marine clocks, marine chronometers and subsequently by specially devised watches, but it also had a great impact to encourage his contemporaries and competitors to throw themselves into the race to achieve truly accurate timekeeping.


The Girard-Perregaux Traveller Large Date, Moon Phase & GMT Tribute to John Harrison (ref. 49655-52-133-BBBA) is characterized by a special dial and a case-back carrying the words "Tribute to John Harrison".


One of the meridians engraved onto the dial is highlighted thanks to an added applied graduation. This is the prime meridian, corresponding to that of Greenwich in England which was used by Harrison to define a standard reference time. In addition, the second time-zone counter reproduces a map of Western Europe, in black on an anthracite-gray background with Great Britain, John Harrison's mother country, marked out in red.


Swiss retail prices in Swiss Francs are 15,700 for the steel version, 32,300 for the pink gold models and 34,300 for the Tribute to John Harrison limited edition.
