    Girard Perregaux Mechanical Watch

    Hi All
    I was left a Gold Girard Perregaux mechanical watch. It still works like a dream and keeps time really well but know nothing about it...age, movement type, model etc. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi Cam,

    wow, pretty ugly (sorry) - unfortunately gilt not gold. The movement GP 507 is obviously the successor of this one:
    http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-...-Perregaux_504
    So the base movement is the FEF 6633 with simplified click device:
    bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: FEF 6633
    The change between both was near 1980. And as the style of your watch tends more to the 70s than the 80s, it was likely made around 1980. I'm afraid GP wasn't proud enough of it to give it a model name. In the quartz crisis the factories had to supply all the market demanded, and this included cheap items which look expensive.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft
