Today's offering presents this beautiful original Girard Perregaux. Its wide Florentine bezel, vendôme lugs, and diamond faceted crystal all showcase its striking modernist design.
The cool, sophisticated crystal has twelve facets that radiate like a slice of pie from the center to each hour marker giving each hour its own section.
As a mens midsize, it is well-suited for someone with smaller wrists or a woman who would like a more full size watch.
Powering it is its handwound Girard Perregaux movement, which is very clean and running true.
Its part are all-original down to the dial, hands, winding crown, and diamond faceted crystal and it is in very pleasing condition. The dial is a vintage restoration that has warmed to a sepia tone.
It is lovingly inscribed on the back with a date of 1961.
Our watchmaker has freshly cleaned and oiled it. For the finishing touch we have installed a new crocodile strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year 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.
