Looking for a new home for this beautiful Diver from Girard-Perregaux Gyromatic. 100% all authentic!
As I've never seen this dial configuration on a Gyromatic, I did asked GP Museum in Switzerland for authentification and have attached their reply in French on the last pic.
The translation is: It is a model of the Deep Diver collection. Without a reference number, I can not be precise about the figures and the year of production. The Caliber 47 (base ETA 1256) is one of the first to receive the Gyromatic winding system. Its production began in 1957, but according to its design, the watch is rather from the late 1960s. In my opinion, everything is authentic, including the dial and hands.
Dial is very attractive, very clean, all scripts clearly visible, no visible scratches or damages. The original Tritium was unfortunately replaced by white luminova so I had the dial and hands relumed with matching vintage tonality by James from the UK.
The 40mm w/o case in very nice original condition, never polished and shows it's original sun polish only some marks here and there so please check the pics.
Glass shows some small scratches but nothing really visible and original crown is in good condition!
It's caliber 47 (base ETA 1256) movement runs perfectly, keeping very good time but unable to tell it's service history.
The beautiful original Green Bakelite bezel is in used condition.
No box included with this watch, only the letter by GP stating it's authenticity seen in this add.
Our asking price is 3.200€ and am open to reasonable offers, preferring a Bank wire, I have many references from collectors all around the world. PayPal is also good if best for you adding 4,5%.
Courier shipping to be discussed with the buyer.
Feel free to ask for more pics and any question is welcome.
I give a full refund in case of any problem or if the watch would not be as described.
Thanks for the attention and to OTD for this space.
Thanks to all for your time,
