ww.tc Financial

    The ww.tc Financial is the world’s first chronograph to indicate the different times around the world as well as the hours when four stock markets (New York, London, Hong Kong, and Tokyo) are open for business. This original and ingenious marriage between technology and aesthetics depends on two mobile disks around the dial: A 24-hour ring is synchronized with the hour hand. A second disk can be adjusted with the crown at 9 o’clock—it displays the names of 24 cities representing each time zone and the periods when the four bourses are open for business. When the red pointer on the hour ring is opposite one of these periods, that particular market is open. The large gold case, 43mm in diameter, houses a Girard-Perregaux automatic mechanical movement. Inside Information: Two limited, individually numbered series are planned for ardent steel-case enthusiasts.
