    Looks good to me... A 12.09 from the early 60's to be exact.

    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Yes I agree with Eeeb that it's a genuine watch movement.
    Actually the number of vintage forgeries is pretty low, and it'll more likely be a Rolex or a very high end watch that is counterfeited. GP is pretty nice but not popular enough to fake.
    What is more of a vintage problem is some joker putting together a Frankenwatch - mixing movement, case and dial to make what looks to be the real deal. This is harder to detect in many situations. But I don't think your watch is one of those either.
