Girard-Perregaux timepieces steal limelight at Damas

Damas, leading retailer of stylish watches and jewellery in the Middle East, presents the latest collection by Swiss Haute-Horlogerie Manufacture Girard-Perregaux which include the Vintage 1945 Jackpot Tourbillon, ww.tc for men and women, and Girard-Perregaux 1966 Full Calendar.

Tawhid Abdullah, Managing Director of Damas, said: “Each Girard-Perregaux timepiece caters to a different segment and combines practical watchmaking complication with supreme elegance. The technology that breathes life into these unique wonders has nothing to do with chance.

These exceptional watches, destined to be worn on the wrists of a privileged few, the concentration on detail involved an intricate choice of materials and technical prowess.”

Vintage 1945 Jackpot Tourbillon:
Girard-Perregaux merges the worlds of game and chance and precision mechanics in this exclusive haute horlogerie model of unexpected complexity. For the first time, a watch combines a tourbillon and a slot machine equipped with a striking mechanism in perfect proportion with the Vintage 1945 case.

A window at 12 o'clock on the dial reveals a row of three symbols, while a cut-out at 6 o'clock lets one admire the gold Bridge and the tourbillon cage.

The game's magic is set in motion by pulling the handle on the right side of the case. The three reels spin and then stop randomly on one of the possible five symbols, while a hammer strikes a gong, producing the happy chime reminiscent of gaming machines in a casino.

Out of the 125 combinations, only one represents the jackpot: the three bells in a row. For this line the Brand decided to embark upon a completely new design - illustrating the Brand's complete mastery in creating rare and precious timekeepers.

ww.tc:
The timeless elegance of Girard-Perregaux's ww.tc line blends well with its resolutely modern functions. These watches can be used to read, simultaneously and very easily, the time in 24 time zones, represented by 24 international cities; hence the name, ww.tc, the abbreviation for World Wide Time Control.

The two novelties of this line, the ww.tc - Financial and the ww.tc - Lady, reflect once again Girard-Perregaux's great watchmaking tradition, its passion for design and modern and daring vision.

Girard-Perregaux 1966 Full Calendar:
The Girard-Perregaux 1966 Full Calendar harmonises functions and style of a grand watchmaking classic in an elegant interpretation. Its round case houses an extremely useful complication: a full calendar, enabling the date display, day of the week, month and phases of moon.

In support of the fine golden hands, two windows placed side by side at 12 o'clock display day of the week and month, while the moon follows its path at 6 o'clock.

This model satisfies the highest demands in terms of design refinement and distinguished style. The sapphire crystal case back reveals theautomatic-winding, mechanical movement GP033M0, designed by the brand. This creation enhances the Girard-Perregaux 1966 Collection and pays homage to the many innovations produced by it in the 1960s.

Girard-Perregaux watches are available at Damas Les Exclusive Boutiques in Burj Al Arab, SAKS Burjuman, Emirates Towers, Wafi City, Madinat Jumeirah and Emirates Palace – Abu Dhabi.
