1950's Girard Perregaux Gyromatic, Square, 14K Gold Filled - Automatic, Waterproof

Girard Perregaux

Item No. 4677

The 1950's were an important decade for Girard Perregaux. In 1951, they introduced a watch with a revolutionary new winding system that would become famous for its engineering feats, the Gyromatic. Because of its ingenious design and function, the Gyromatic watch became well-known.

We are pleased to offer this Girard Perregaux Gyromatic 39 jewels watch which has been beautifully restored. Here are some if its features:

* Highly-efficient self-winding Gyromatic mechanism keeps the watch powered by small movements of the wrist

* Simple design eliminates key vulnerabilities commonly found in other automatic movements such as couplets, ratchets, and other delicate parts

* Very effective power transmission systems requires smaller wrist movement to keep the watch fully powered, thereby insuring the watch spends more time running at peak power level for more accurate timekeeping

* Thirteen-nine jewel movement

* Unusual waterproof, cushion-shaped case. Despite the inherent difficulties associated with making rectangular cases impermeable, using an extremely high level of craftsmanship and an ingenious case design that features an inner movement holder, unique pressure sealing crystal, and four screws, Girard Perregaux succeeded in building a fully waterproof, cushion shaped case, an unusual feat in the 1950's.

* Thick, solid case that fits in well with the look of today's watches
