    Help: ID Men's Girard Perregaux circa 1982

    Hello everyone,

    I've received a GP from my father but sadly he never kept good care of this particular watch (read: scratches on crystal, missing original strap/buckle) or his records attributed to it. I am having some difficulty placing the model after a pretty thorough scouring of the web and thus I am hoping the knowledge base here might be able to help. I am not confident in opening the back so I don't have a photo of the movement but what I've been told is that it is an 18k case and it was purchased in 1982.

    In addition to the help in identifying this watch, I am looking for some advice on how much money I should sink into servicing it/replacing parts.

    Thanks for your time!

    Jon

    It is a gold plated case (the stainless back says that) not a solid gold one. It probably has an ETA quartz movement which, if it is working, needs only batteries. Crystals are easily replaced for $20/30. GP did not 'name' its watches, by in large.

    Nice watch.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    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!
