    Late 1950ís Girard-Perregault Gyromatic Info

    Does anyone know anything about the Girard-Perregault Gyromatic watch from the late 50ís? I have my late father-in-laws watch that he received on his wedding day in 1959. I believe itís white gold and itís manual wind. He wore this watch almost every day until his passing. Thanks.

    With the excellent provenance, it seems like you already know more than we can tell you from that single dark photo. Is there something specific you wanted to know? Personally, I suspect the case is stainless, not white gold, but that information should be on the case-back, perhaps on the inside. Also, a gyromatic watch is obviously automatic-winding, not manual. If it requires manual winding, then something is broken.

    Great hour markers BTW.

    I think it’s stainless. My mother-in-law insists it’s white gold but I don’t think so. I didn’t know that it was automatic. I wound it up when I first handled it and it’s still running. My wife said her Dad wound it every morning so I thought it might be manual wind. Is This watch valuable? In not getting rid of it, just wondering.

    Appears to be a redial, looking on the close up picture. But I can be wrong...

    Yeah, I've been searching online and can't find another watch with the same dial.

    Sorry but we don't give valuations here - it's not possible to be precise. If it is a grotty redial (and it sure looks that way from here), it's value will be rather less than that of an original one, though.

    Hi,

    even if not valuable, why won't you wear it ? It still looks quite nice even for a redial. I bet there's an ETA 1256 with mobile stud inside, quite good stuff. Get it serviced and you'll have an cool piece on the wrist.
