Amongst a collection of extremely rare Girard Perregaux Gyromatic’s one can put this as the pinnacle piece. This Girard Perregaux High-Frequency Chronometer dates to 1965.
The sine wave GP logo symbolizes the high frequency movement and it predates the more well-known models which wrote “high-frequency” on the dial. The Chronometer grade 32.7 caliber was the first automatic movement with a frequency of 36,000 Vibrations per Hour. This movement was later renamed the 32A movement, which has recently become heavily desired by collectors.
The unpolished 34 mm stainless steel cushion case shows off this extremely rare dial variant and features the original signed GP crown. If looked at the correct angle there is the slightest brushed linen finish. A true connoisseur’s piece, the hours are marked with hand cut and applied stainless steel stick markers, and stainless-steel hands.
This extremely rare piece is sold on a custom 17 mm royal blue stingray strap. We are extremely proud to offer a piece of this historical significance and rarity.
