    '60s or '70s based on the dial and it being a 17 jewel winder. Probably toward the lower end of that range. But I am not a real GP expert. I just play one on the Internet

    Nice piece!

    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

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

    Nice watch.

    Unfortunately, there is no list of GP serial numbers on the internet - not that I can see a number on yours. The watch may not have had a model name - they didn't all back then.

    GP is an underrated (IMHO) vintage brand, and very nice watches can be found for quite modest outlays.

    Send a inquiry to GP, I just sent one to Mido, on my Super Automatic. I had asked two questions, year built, and when they started using the Powerwind trademark. They answered the year built question (1953).

    I'm going to second Eeeb's estimation - it's a 60's or early 70's watch. That's a classic TV screen style; named obviously because the shape of the crystal is of a TV tube. Nice one. GP made the first high beat (36,000 bph) movements in the mid 60's which are some of the more sought after pieces from the brand.
