Regular price $499.00 Sale

FOR SALE IS A STRIKING 60s GIRARD PERREGAUX GYROMATIC RECENTLY SERVICED AND IN FANTASTIC CONDITION

 

CASE: SHARP SOLID STEEL CASE MEASURING A NICE 35mm NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN BY 43mm LUG TO LUG.  SUCH A SIMPLE AND ELEGANT DESIGN WITH THE THIN BEZEL AND SLIM PROFILE.  BUT, FOR A WATCH OF THIS ERA IT IS QUITE LARGE AND WEARS NICELY DUE TO THAT THIN BEZEL/WIDE DIAL AND THAT LONG LUG TO LUG LENGTH.  THERE ARE SOME MINOR SCRATCHES AND SIGNS OF WEAR, BUT THIS THIN SHARP CASE MAINTAINS ITS ORIGINAL AND UNPOLISHED FINISH. CHECK OUT THOSE SHARP BEVELS THAT RUN THE LENGTH OF CASE.

 

DIAL: MINIMALISM AND SIMPLICITY DEFINED AND AS CLASSY AS THEY COME.  CHECK OUT THAT BEAUTIFUL SUNBURST SILVER DIAL IN EXCELLENT SHAPE WITH A NICE EVEN PATINA TONE THROUGHOUT THE DIAL.  I LOVE THOSE BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL APPLIED STEEL MARKERS AND THOSE PROMINENT LONG DAUPHINE HANDS. A VERY BALANCED AND HANDSOME FACE ON THIS GP. 

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A HIGH GRADE 39 JEWEL GILTED GYROMATIC AUTOMATIC.  THIS WATCH WAS SERVICED BY MY WATCHMAKER IN LATE JUNE OF 2018.

 

WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A COOL TAN QUALITY LEATHER STRAP WHICH REALLY LOOKS SPORTY ON THIS GUY. THIS GIRARD PERREGAUX IS A RELIC OF THE "JEWEL WARS" OF THE 60s WITH ITS COUNT OF 39.  THESE WERE REALLY HIGH GRADE PIECES OF THE ERA AND SUPER ELEGANT AS WELL. I LOVE THE SHARP SIMPLICITY ON THIS ONE AND THAT NICE HINT OF PATINA ON THAT DIAL WHICH GIVES THIS ONE PLENTY OF CHARACTER. THIS IS A GREAT EVERYDAY PIECE AND CAN BE EASILY DRESSED UP OR DRESSED DOWN WITH A SIMPLE STRAP CHANGE.
