    It's Finally Mine. A Long Sought After Girard-Perregaux

    GIRARD PERREGAUX
    Gyromatic 39 Jewels Chronometer Grade
    Heavy 80 Mic. Gold Plated
    40.00 mm Lug To Lug And 30.00 mm Wide Excluding The Crown

    I've been after this watch for quite some time. I just never found one in such great condition. I got the watch for $50 less then my maximum, which I was prepared to increase if needed. On to the seller's pictures.

    all Gyromatic´s are quite fine, particularly these with 39 jewel and yours seems to be in very good condition.

    Congrats for the acquisition

    Beautiful watch. I have to say I love my G-P it gets lots of wrist time. I hope you enjoy yours just as much.

    Very nice indeed. On the movement shot the crown seems to be missing. Is it a split stem? It doesn't look like a frontloader.

    I believe it is a split stem. I wasn't able to find to many details about the movement. Hopefully Dr. Ranfft will chime in. Now you have me wondering.

    It's one of the case designs where the movement sits in a one-piece case with the crystal forming a "lid". The bezel (with lugs) then goes over top to hold it all in place.
