    Any Love for GP?

    I look at the Public Forum quite often yet I never ever see anything posted about GP. I realize they've had a somewhat storied history but is there any love out there for this brand?

    I would think that these might perhaps be discussed and appreciated a lot more in the High End forum, but you're right, there doesn't seem to be so much mention of them in f2.

    They cater to a specific crowd, your average Joe cannot afford one, hence we hear less about them.

    ebay may disagree with you there...out of all high-enders you're probably most likely to find a deal on a GP. regardless of any of that, really like the photos in this thread - great-looking watches!

    True, but of the newer offerings they are priced quite high.

    Here's a Buy It Now on Fleabay for $1,600. Not crazy expensive. Although I'm not sure I've ever seen "Manufacture" above the GP before.

    Re: Any Love for GP?

    They get criticized a bit for low resale values (doesn't bother me) I've noticed and that might have something to do with it. I like some of their offerings, one I had and one that has caught my eye, we'll see . . .

    The old Traveler is one of my favorite watches. And it's "affordable".
