    Question Authentic vintage Girard Perregaux ?

    Hi,

    Can you tell me if this is an authentic Girard Perregaux vintage watch (see attached files) :

    mechanic Girard Perregaux 17 jewels, 32 mm with crown, number engraved is 091-642.
    It seems to be a vintage piece from 1970.

    Thanks

    The caseback and thus the case are GP. I can not see the movement in sufficient clarity to examine any markings. It should be marked with a script font Girard Perregaux 17 jewels and probably unadjusted. You can check Dr. Ranfft's movement archive for a matching movement (google will direct you). Ranfft will also give you an idea on the dating.

    The dial is probably refinished given the interior case discolorization... the dial would have suffered something similar... and its fairly pristine appearance.

    If the movement is real, it is probably real with a caveat on who knows what the original dial looked like...

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
