    Question Question for the movement experts/owners ...

    Somewhere down the line I'm interested in purchasing a watch with the Girard-Perregaux GP 3xxx series movement (most likely the GP 3300). I wanted to know from people who own a watch with this movement, or people who know a lot about it/have worked with it about its quality, durability/robustness, accuracy (including positional, temperature and isochronism variations, if possible) and the general feeling about the movement. I guess, it might cost an arm and a leg to get it serviced if problems develop

    Thank you in advance!

    It's good enough that Cartier uses it.

    Thank you for the reply! I'm looking at the Classic Elegance 49570 (perhaps in a year or a bit more), have you handled that watch? I'll probably have to buy pre-owned since that watch is discontinued ...

    Handled GP for a trial run for about six weeks, never saw that one.

    That's a really nice looking watch. Pretty much nothing about it I would change, and I don't say that too often!

    A nice review of its sibling with the same movement, Jason -

    I'm sorry, I made a small mistake. The Ref. 49570 in which I am interested has the larger GP4500 movement whereas the watch in the article has the GP3300, my bad.

    A slightly technical look at the GP4500 -
