I purchased this watch over eBay, maybe a little hastily, but it is on its way to me and I like the look of it. So I am really just trying to get some information from someone more knowledgeable about Girard Perregaux vintage watches than me.
What I know about the watch is it appears to be in pretty decent shape, the seller proclaims it is the original dial and been serviced and keeping excellent time. We will see about all those claims. It is solid 18k gold, the case back has the appropriate markings, and everything seems to fit, except I cannot find one scintilla of information about the actual model of the watch.

I can't seem to post the photos to the thread.
So things I know about the watch
34mm without the crown
1209449 movement - Girard-Perregaux Caliber 12.09 - Circa 1960
Any information that others may have would be very much appreciated. Even if I could find out that it is a Franken made from two different GP watches, at least then I would know a little more. I am not too concerned about the nature of the watch as I plan on wearing the heck out of it (provided 34mm doesn't look too small on my wrist). Thanks for looking. Sorry I cannot post photos to this thread, please take a look at the folder link for more of them.
