Girard-Perregaux Shadow

PAM00327The Girard-Perregaux Shadow has a look that is a little more casual than the previous World Time models. I think it is the black ceramic case that takes some of the elegance from the watch and transforms the watch into a more sporty look. This in my opinion is not a negative but a refreshing new look for the World Time collection. I think it is a very stylish chronograph watch that takes advantage of cutting-edge materials to achieve the new and pleasant look.

The black ceramic case of the Shadow is 43 mm and has a beautiful satin-finish with rubber coated crowns and push-buttons. The ceramic is lighter than steel but much harder, it is biocompatible and hypoallergenic. The case-back is made of tinted sapphire glass which reveals the sophisticated movement. The black dial has and white red accents and the rotating world time disc shows the cities of the world. The inner rotating indicator is half black and half white showing the day and the night times. The hands and hour markers are luminous for easy readability. The Girard-Perregaux Shadow watch features a self-winding GP03387 caliber which has a flyback function and an adjustable date display with a power reserve of 46 hours. It comes on a black calfskin strap with a folding buckle. Water resistance is rated for 30 meters.
