    I am suspicious. The dial does not have a good taste to me and the unmarked movement has an acrid smell...

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

    Even when GP was a young company, as the general age of this watch would indicate (roughly 1940's), they were high-end. So what Eeeb said was my first though as well. Dial printing isn't of the highest quality. While the movement looks like a Valjoux (9-point column wheel), without GP's name on the chrono bridge or their import identifier on the balance bridge does raise an eyebrow.
    Does anybody else think that "17 Jewels Swiss" looks like it has been lasered on? Also a very small point, a watch that is about 70 years old wouldn't have its balance regulator exactly in the middle of the scale. I find that unlikely.
