    Girard Perregaux... Update! Movement picture

    Here is the shot of the movement for the sweet GP

    Hey Cats,
    Finally! Got one of my grails, Girard Perregaux I'm quite happy with it

    Serial number on movement is 06 4985
    So can anybody tell me the year roughly and how this is considered, same old same old GP or is it a decent find.

    Enjoy!

    Peace,
    Preston

    Very nice.

    AFAIK, there is no G-P serial number list available on the internet. Others may know differently.

    This may be of interest:

    To me, it looks late 30's.

    Re: Girard Perregaux

    I can remember no facts to support myself but for some reason I think they went to the applied "GP" logo on the dial in the late '50s. Or maybe the early '60s. I'm not much help. If, though, you're able to find out what movement is in there you'll at least have a solid year range.

    The article on thepurists.com was an interesting read but, as it turns out, not a terribly accurate one. I have an early Gyromatic (47AE movement) with a Wadsworth case AND the classic Girard Perregaux logo, the only difference being the location of the "1791" and the absence of "swiss". I'll attach photos of the caseback inside and front/back shots of the whole thing for posterity (and also email the article's author). It'll also be a testament to the strength of Wadsworth cases - by the look of that scratch someone apparently used dynamite to open it at one point. Also, my pictures are lousy and I haven't yet refinished the case. Yep, that takes care of the disclaimers :).

    On another note, this thread reminded me how much I like GPs in general so I suppose I'll be wearing mine this evening. Good catch Preston.

    I hope I look as good as my Hamilton when I'm seventy. I guess time will tell.

    Re: Girard Perregaux

    Thanks for the comments guys. The link ( Thanks Marrick ) tells me that mine is a US made Wadsworth case. I'll take some pics when it's apart and post them to this thread later.

    Peace,
