1960s Girard Perregaux Alarm
It's no secret Girard Perregaux has a deep lineage within Swiss watchmaking history, unofficially forming at the end of the 17th century and formally being announced as Girard Perregaux & Cie in 1852, and during their time since have created some very worthwhile and interesting watches.
We love this uniquely designed alarm wristwatch from Girard Perregaux, instead of the alarm function being set via an additional hand or rotating disc in the center of the dial, the alarm function is housed in a beautifully constructed window that allows for a user-friendly setting function in a stylish fashion.
|Bracelet||2pc Handmade Leather Strap|
The case is in excellent condition and is believed to be unpolished, retaining excellent case dimensions and geometry with light signs of honest use. The case retains its original "A" crown for setting and winding the alarm and original unsigned crown for setting the hands. The watch will come supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap.
The sunburst brushed silver dial and alarm wheel are both in beautiful condition and reveal minimal signs of aging. The lume plots above the hour markers have aged into a dark gray patina and exhibit some signs of light degradation. The original hands are in excellent condition and have aged to the same coloration as the lume plots.
None. The watch is functioning perfectly and keeping time, previous service history is unknown.
