    Rough value of this Girard Perregaux Gyromatic please?

    In pound sterling please.
    First post here, i own a watch identical to this:

    GIRARD-PERREGAUX Gyromatic Chronometer HF Date Watch | BIG BEN WATCHES by Big Ben Watches

    It has some very light surface scratches on the front, back and on the original bracelet itself. But nothing major which is easily noticeable.
    Could anyone say roughly what this is worth in pounds? As i am selling it on Ebay soon.
    Thank you!

    Hi. No - sorry - we do not attempt valuations in here. If you describe it carefully and photograph it properly then it will achieve its market value.

    Many of my pictures were posted via Webshots which has now closed - and so have disappeared from WUS. Sorry.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    Welcome. At the top of the Vintage forum page are a number of posts (stickies). They provide a wealth of information you may find useful. They also say why we don't do valuations online. Enjoy the forum!

    Ok, is it allowed for members to private message me rough valuations? If not, are there any websites which do?
    Thank you

    Sure, PM... but please don't ask me! All I would do is look at completed listings on eBay for sold GP HFs. Having at least one or two, I know they are not extremely valuable. Non-watch collectors usually think their watches are worth more than the market. Don't be fooled by websites that ask high prices. Note they remain unsold for a long long time.
