Girard-Perregaux Shopping Watch
I find the newest women's watch from Girard-Perregaux a little sexist (women aren't the only shoppers after all) but the watch is awfully attractive. The Girard-Perregaux ww.tc 24 Hour Shopping Watch gives the time in 24 time zones listing them, not by cities as most watches do, but by shopping destinations. The watch lists places famous for their fashion and luxury boutiques, such as Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Dubai, Ginza and Rode Drive. There are several different versions available and each one focuses on two specific venues: Faubourg Saint-Honoré and Orchard Road, or Montenapoleone and Central or Rue du Rhône and Nan Jing Xi Lu. The other time zones are indicated on the city ring by fifteen different sized diamonds, adding up to 0.18 carats. The dial has diamonds as some of the hour markets and the bezel is set with 54 diamonds (a total of 1.95 carats). The 41mm watch uses the Girard-Perregaux movement GP033G0, a mechanical movement with automatic winding. It has a sapphire crystal and a sapphire back. One nice detail is the onyx cabochons set into the watch crowns.
