I am considering the acquisition of a vintage Girard-Perregaux, but I know little to nothing about the vintage models. Is anyone in a position to advise me about tell-tale signs of a fake, or what to look for in an original, please? This is the model that has caught my attention.

Hi James. GP wasn't the same quality then as it is now. It was a middle of the road brand at best. That particular watch is probably a redial, and I'd say you'd do better with a Hamilton, both in quality and price.

That is good to know. But I want a vintage GP because I cannot buy a new one at the moment. Some of the vintage pieces are more attainable of all the brands I like.

GP was always a manufactuer, yes?

Girard Perregaux made some great timepieces.
I have one with exploding dial (exaggerated numbers) fro 1920

Not so hard to find.
Try E bay

That is where those pictures are from. I just want to be certain I am buying a fake. The seller appears genuine, but that means next to nothing on eBay, I know.
