Up for sale, I have my beautiful 1960's Girard Perregaux Calatrava. This watch is gorgeous and extremely rare! In all my searches, I have been able to only find 2 other examples of the same case but none with this gorgeous dial with these gold hands and indices! I initially bought this watch in early 2018 as a restoration project. I sent it into Al at Archer watches (well known here on the forums) and he undertook the project. I received the watch back in October 2018 and it has been running fantastically since. The watch is 34mm in diameter and is made of steel and is unpolished. The crown was sourced by Al and is original to this case (something that was not an easy task). Inside is a flawlessly running manually wound GP Cal 18 17 jewel adjusted movement. This watch has some patina but it has beautifully aged. Being an unpolished case, it does have some hairline scratches, here and there. It is not a safe queen but it is not an abused watch by any means. The snap back does have some VERY MINOR pry damage to it. This was not caused by me or Al and it does not affect the watch in anyway. The watch is not water proof and was never designed to be. Also, if the buyer would like, I can email them the servicing PDF from Archer Watches after purchase. The PDF has detailed photos of the movement and service procedure.
Further more, I was able to source an original GP 14mm buckle to go with this piece (very hard to find). I also sourced two original 18mm straps, one in grey suede and the other in black calf skin. The watch is currently on a black vintage lizard grain leather strap.
Overall, this package is an amazing piece. The reason I am looking to consolidate my collection into a couple of pieces. Overall for the whole package on this watch, I am valuing it at $500 USD. I will cover the paypal fees and shipping anywhere in North America, overseas buyers will need to discuss shipping options with me. As with all my listings over the years, I am open to reasonably offers or trades. I am looking to get a Seiko 6138 Bullhead. Otherwise cash is king. Send me a PM on the forums here and I will always respond within 24 hours! All my sales are final, I have a fantastic record of buying and selling on the WUS forums and eBay. I also have made a few transactions over at the Omega Forum, Chrono24 etc.
