I just found this watch on Ebay, anyone knows the model or what kind of movement is used?
Did GP make their own movements in the 50s?
Thanks in advance for any answers.

No model name, and a poor redial.
And as I understand it the movement is faked as well so stay away.
Welcome to the Vintage forum. To elaborate on that: the movement is a bridge deviation of the common Adolf Schild "Wehrmachtskaliber" Cal. AS 1130:
bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: AS 1130
...which in some variations (also some used by GP) looked like this (see also last picture in link above):
bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Girard-Perregaux 27 (AS 1130)
The trouble is that the GP versions were redesignated and carried that redesignation (here: Cal. 27) on the bridges. Since that is missing and since it is easier to convincingly etch a name onto the mainspring gear than engrave it onto a bridge, this is probably not a real GP version of the AS 1130.
