Hi guys. I'm looking at this GP movement:
It says Girard Perregaux, 263504.
I've found one with the same number, and a couple which look quite similar.
This one in particular: bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements: Girard-Perregaux 25.09 (AS 1525)
Can I count on the one shown being authentic?
It's attached to a two tone dial and I do not think the dial and case necessarily went with the movement originally. The dial is from a two hands movement though and does not seem to be restored that much, maybe cleaned a little, and is in good condition. I'll find out for sure when I have the watch in my hands.
The case does not say "Incabloc", but ranfft says these movements are Incabloc. Otherwise it has the stamps I expect.
I suspect the dial and case to be authentic, but I do not care much whether the movement and case/dial came paired originally or not.
Since this is my first "real" (or is it :P ) vintage watch (I have a fine, but of course shabbily made, Pobeda too) I'm taking it in as a tester before I throw my money after vintage of watches just to realize I don't care much for wearing them.
(I don't wear the Pobeda because it does not go with any of my clothes, although it did just have a good time watching Der Untergang with me...)
