Girard-Perregaux Chronometer 8795
A rare and important men’s Girard-Perregaux Chronometer, with the 39 jewel Gyromatic high beat movement.
Girard-Perregaux were the first company to make a high frequency automatic movement in 1965, so this watch has to be after this date. The same company were also pioneers in quartz technology in the early 1970’s, so we think this watch falls between the two dates. For many this is a horological high water mark, and we have contacted Girard-Perregaux directly to try and find out more. UPDATE – The nice people at Girard-Perregaux have confirmed that this model, 8795, was made in 1967.
