1960s Girard Perregaux Alarm
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.
|2pc Handmade Leather Strap
The excellent case shows full and even lugs that show signs of gentle previous polishing and minimal signs of use. The matching crowns appear to be early replacements and match the aesthetic of the watch perfectly. The two-part case back is in excellent condition. The watch comes supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap.
The original sunburst silver dial and alarm wheel are both in beautiful condition, the dial has achieved a beautiful warm patina. The tritium-lumed hands display a dark tan patina, with no degradation present under UV light inspection.
None. The watch is keeping time perfectly, but the service history is unknown. A movement service can be provided upon request.
