Housed inside a jumbo 38 mm cushion case, the dial of this Girard Perregaux high-frequency Gyromatic is hypnotizing.
The Tuxedo design of the dial is executed in a sophisticated yet still casual sporting fashion. The white center features non-imposing but legible original text and reduced size hand applied GP logo. Also, the observatory hand-painted design is a beautiful and under the radar added detail of this dial. The hand engraved and applied hour markers glisten in sunlight, and the black and steel hands give a seamless and clean look to the overall amount of complexity on the dial. The original white chapter ring emphasizes a dressy feel to this sporty case. The 22 mm suede strap with minimal white stitching complements the overall design. This piece is outfitted with an original GP signed 5.2 mm crown and its low-profile is another non-imposing complementary design elements making the sporty piece very refined.
The Girard Perregaux caliber 440 automatic movement was fully serviced prior to sale and is keeping to COSC standards. The movement dates to 1972, the same year of production as the piece, featuring a day & date complications, hacking ability and a 17 jewel 36,000 V/H high frequency movement.
