    I think to change the ruber for leather, but I need to get a curve entrance, like the ruber one.

    The 4th picture is from my daughter's wrist. Can you tell me something about this GP. I think is a rare diver (being a ladies watch). Thank you.

    GP called their automatics Gyromatic. They made a number of them but not many divers and, I suspect you are correct, the women's divers are even rarer.

    The first watch in the series, the Movado 360 may be one of their Calibre 408s. They are one of the first 36000 bph movements. Until quartz came along 36000 bph movements were the most accurate made for wristwatches.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "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!

    Hi everyone!!

    :thanks Erpardo, for sharing your collection.

    Am I wrong, and you are Mexican ? If positive, I think we should arrange a future meeting
    Particularly interesting to me are your Movado Kingmatics for obvious reasons, the engraved charriot on the back case are really beautiful!!

    You´re right in the sense that the ladie´s Gyromatic diver is uncommon.


    See you soon, compadre

    Hey Erpardo!

    thanks for sharing your beauties with us, you have a quite impressive collection of various timepieces...but we already knew that. right?

    Anyway, if you accept King's invitation and organize a GTG don't take your Movados, he'll make you sell/trade them with you

    Let us know if you manage to get a nice leather to that Rolex, that's really an awesome watch!!!

    Take care!

    Very nice collection Erpardo...

    I esp like the squarish Kingmatic.
    Movados are def an under-appreciated brand.

    Thanks for posting them.

    Peace,
    Scott
