This stunning example of a Girard Perregaux Gyromatic with a naturally consistent patina throughout the dial, is showcased with spearhead hour markers at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o’clock position. To fully appreciate the dial that photographs amazingly, it must be seen in person, as the warm chestnut almost toasted table sugar finish screams out in direct and indirect sunlight.
The natural patina of the hands just adds to the overall aged look which vintage collectors and enthusiasts hunt for. The aging of the hands matches up perfectly with the dial making them clearly visible but in no way detracting from the masterpiece patina that has occurred.
Housed in an unpolished 34 mm stainless steel case (40.35mm lug to lug), all original lines still remain as they did when they left the factory decades ago. The original and signed Girard Perregaux crown is fitted and winds with a buttery smooth action. Honest examples of Gyromatic’s are becoming increasingly difficult to source. This is a brand collectors and enthusiasts are starting to take notice of as they have been responsible for many patented innovations and iconic designs. This example is fitted on a brand-new super elegant and soft emerald green Fluco suede 18 mm strap.
The Girard Perregaux 21.19 Automatic movement is keeping excellent time and has been checked by a 40 year master watchmaker prior to sale.
