    To elaborate: the dial states "Girard-Perregaux" - but that alone means little since dials can be faked easily. The movement says "Girard-Perregaux" - but the quality of the etching is so poor that it is quite obvious that it was done in a backyard outhouse or garage (presumably somewhere in Argentina or the Ukraine). The overall finissage of the movement is so factory-standard that only a dreamer of a buyer or a b*****d of a seller would (make) believe that this was manufactured by GP.....

    Thank you so much , especially Hartmut Richter for further information. I suspected that there is something fishy about the watch, but it wasn't certain for me. Meanwhile I found a new GP which I'm 90%sure it is authentic.Name:  52232409_2_1000x700_girard-perregaux-ceas-mecanic-fotografii.jpg

    Yep, that one ought to be genuine. The movement is a GP Cal. 14 BH which is effectively the same as an Adolf Schild Cal. AS 1221:

    The seller offers this bonus strap (most likely it's a handmade one) .I think it matches very well with the watch :D
