Swiss Watches

Although the Swiss brand's World Wide Time Control collection was first unveiled about ten years ago, the new Girard-Perregaux ww.tc World Wide Time Control Chronograph (ref. 49805-11-650-BA6A) automatic wristwatch doesn't look much different from the model that started it all. Coming in basically the same oversized stainless steel case and offering the same dial layout, it seems to differ from its numerous predecessors only with its color scheme (and even that one is just a carefully facelifted job that doesn't offer anything particularly new in the styling department.) Frankly, I must admit that I actually like this approach: like the iconic Speedmaster or the Navitimer with their easily recognizable styling, some watches just have to evolve as slowly as possible in order not to disappoint the loyal followers of the brand.

This autumn, right in time for the holiday shopping season, the aspiring Swiss-based watchmaker will hit the stores with a new limited edition watch. Called Baume & Mercier William Baume Jumping Hour (ref. M0A08857, also known as ref. 8857), it is what it is: a dressy automatic watch featuring a not so common jumping hour complication. What's even more exciting about this timepiece is that this is a true limited edition model: with just a handful of individually numbered time measuring devices to ever be released, there is a good chance that the wristwatch will become a rarity in no time at all.
