The handsome Girard Perregaux wristwatch showcased in today's offering is a striking example of one of the company's classic and beautiful vintage watches made for the South American market.
At 35mm in diameter not including the crown, this beauty fills out the wrist in a way many dress watches from the era do not.
It extra large 18K rose gold case with elegant bombe style lugs is its original contract GP case made for the South American market. Its striking guilloche dial complements the case gorgeously.
Powering it is fine original handwound Girard Perregaux movement.
Its elegant 18K case is in excellent condition. Its dial is bright and clean, previously refinished. And its LeCoultre movement is very clean.
One of our watchmakers has just freshly cleaned and oiled the fine handwound Girard Perregaux movement. It continues to run very accurately.
Included with the purchase is a 90-day C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate.
Watchmakers for over 200 years, Girard Perregaux has built an enduring watchmaking legacy. The company's watches have been worn by many heads of state, including Napoleon III, Queen Victoria, and King Farouk.
