The Watch

The brand’s origins date back to Geneva Switzerland in 1791, where Jean-François Bautte, a fine pocket watchmaker and goldsmith built workshops and created his first watches. It wasn’t until 1906 that the two companies became acquainted when Constant Girard-Gallet actually bought the Bautte company from Jacques Bautte and the modern Girard-Perregaux was formed. 

The brand name was established in 1856 in the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds, thanks to the marriage of Constant Girard and Marie Perregaux. Here we have a 1950s Girard-Perregaux Gyromatic 39 with a 34mm stainless steel case. Thin angled straight lugs comfortably fit on your wrist. A lug to lug length of 40mm and a thickness of 9mm gives the watch an impressive wrist presence. On the right side is a signed crown.  A thin polished bezel holds a domed crystal. The sunburst silver dial has fine chamfer-edged applied indexes marking the hours. At 3 o’clock a framed date window. Elegant dauphine hands are complemented by a tapered sweeping second hand. Text is precisely printed at 12 and 6 respectively. On the reverse, a screw-down case back. Inside an Automatic Girard-Perregaux 39 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour. The movement was a joint development of Doxa, Eberhard, Favre-Leuba, Girard-Perregaux, and Zodiac. Invented by a Swiss Horology engineer, It has a bidirectional rotor with roller Ruby bearings that captures every movement of the wearer according to Girard-Perregaux. The watch comes fitted on its original Girard-Perregaux 18mm leather strap and a signed original buckle.

Points of Mention


This watch is sold as "Watch Only" and therefore comes with no original Girard-Perregaux box or paperwork. The watch comes paired with an original Girard-Perregaux vintage strap with a signed buckle. The watch is from Circa. 1950s and is sold in vintage condition, but overall very fair condition for its age as you can see. The watch comes with our 12-Months NON-Waterproof Warranty.

Personal Note


A really stunning and beautiful condition watch from a massively underrated brand with their vintage offerings, more people should pay attention but whilst they don't these will remain amazing values to be had. I'd highly recommend reading into the history of GP, they are one serious brand with an amazing heritage.
