I've recently discovered this brand and the craftsmanship of their modern watches is amazing. They have a long history, are independently owned and make everything in house - haute horology in my book. While not having the same name recognition as PP, AP, ALS and VC, I'd say from my reading...
Interested in trading two watches. One Bell & Ross BR 123, good condition with 2 deployant clasps and all boxes and papers. Second is a Girard Perregaux vintage 1945 mechanical wound ladies watch. All boxes and papers as well. Have nothing really in mind, but am open to offers!
I'm new to this forum and to watches in general :)
My interest in vintage Girard Perregaux began when I had an idea for a birthday gift for my father. His first watch was purchased in 1965 - a very simple manual GP. I remember him wearing it when I was younger. Unfortunately, that watch was...
I just bought a GP alarm watch :)
As you can see from the photo, the crystal is scratched.
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but is there a way to replace the crystal? How do I go about finding one that fits? Are there known "models" of crystals that fits this particular watch? Presumably...
Hi everyone, this is my first post. I'm new to all this, so please be forgiving :)
if this watch is genuine/original? I haven't seen another dial like it before
historical info about the watch?
Many thanks in advance :)
This is my first post after a while being educated by you all- please be gentle!
My "new" vintage 1953 Girard perragaux arrived in the post yesterday, and so far is keeping good time!
All is well you say?
Well, I opened the back last night and found the fine adjustment needle (if...
For sale is a vintage Girard Perregaux Gyromatic with a linen dial.
The linen dial on this watch is beautiful and in excellent condition...a fairly rare find. Everything is original, untouched dial and hands. An excellent dress watch or entry into the world of vintage watches.
I was wondering if any of you could tell me more about this vintage GP Seahawk I have bought recently. The case is 14 K Gold with SS back, and it looks and runs great. My guess is that it could be of late 40s / early 50s but would anybody know some details about the...
I saw this in the window display of a pawn shop, and for £180 I decided to take a punt. I know absolutely nothing about this watch so if anyone could help shed some light I would love that. Real, fake, model name, ref. no., year of production/era, value etc etc. Don't hold back...
Grandpa's watch - Imgur
So, I was just given the above watch by my mother. It was my grandfather's watch, but I don't know much beyond that.
I was interested in age, servicing, care, and any other information anyone might feel is interesting. It still seems to work. The inside of the...

New to vintage watches here and seeking advice before taking the plunge on eBay? Should a novice like me avoid purchasing on eBay or from outside the US? Does the Valjoux 22 have a good history and can I expect this watch to perform adequately today? If I'm able to purchase for a good...
