    Approximate age of this Girard Perregaux?

    Purchased from private owner in Chile for laughably low sum. Judging from the font of the dial, I'm guessing 1940's... Any ideas? I can't find a serial database...

    Could be anywhere between the very late 1930's to 1950's, just based on the lack of shock protection on the balance.

    I'd say it's mid- to late- 1940s, but something like 1950-1952 would be a possibility as well. I'd be leaning towards believing it's from the 40s, given the blued steel stick hands, which were quite popular back then.
