The original Girard-Perregaux World Time Chronograph was introduced around 2000. By now, many variations of this iconic watch have been released, however, there are only 100 of this particular Ferrari model. The other 99 are almost impossible to find.
Check the Caseback:
What you see here has been manufactured for Ferrari to celebrate Ferrari’s 50 years in USA from 1954-2004. The partnership between Girard-Perregaux and the supercar maker ended in the same year, making this one of the last Ferrari pieces made. The GP on the dial is replaced with the Ferrari logo.
Check the Dial:
Another tell-tale sign of this very special model is located on the bi-directional internal rotating bezel, where you will find the American cities in red, as well as Maranello, the Italian home of Ferrari. This titanium beauty still has the sticker on the caseback and includes the original Ferrari box.

What’s Included? Original red hardwood Girard Perregaux Ferrari inner and outer box, original hangtag, no papers.
Condition: Very good overall, with signs of wear on the bezel, sides of the case, strap, and clasp. Nothing major that can’t be polished out in the next service. The date flips at 12:00 as it should. The chronograph resets to zero. The crowns screw in and out and operate as they should. The rubber strap has been cut to fit a 7″ wrist, but replacement straps shouldn’t be difficult to find if needed (22mm). The original sticker is still attached to the caseback. The cushion in the box is falling apart from age.
