Girard Perregaux Type XX Flyback Chrono

GP-XX-Groot

Ultra rare Girard Perregaux Type XX 3 counter from around 1960 in mint condition. These are such great watches and to me one of the most beautiful designs ever! These are 100% the same as the Breguet’s and Mathey Tissot’s but the GP is the rarest and least produced of the 3 brands (I’ve only seen 2 others in my life). The steel 38mm screwback case is beautifully made and really shows it’s high quality. The original dial and hands have nicely aged and is turning into a stunning dark-brown. The big feature of this watch is the Cal. 720 Flyback movement signed GP is made by Valjoux of which only 200 pcs have ever been made for various watches. Attached is a high quality suede strap with the original GP Buckle. Not much else to say, super desirable and in great condition.

Breguet Type 20 Flyback XX

One of the cleanest designs ever made,  certainly the most beautiful winding crown ever designed. This is the first series of the famous Breguet Type 20 from 1954. It’s the military variant with military engravings & service marks and unmarked dial. It comes with a Breguet Extract which states it was delivered  to the ‘Ministere de l’Air on the 17th of June 1955’. The steel screw-back case is in great condition and measures 38mm excl crowns. The dial and hands are original and have aged nicely with the tritium markers having a tan color (pictures are a bit reflected but the dial is really nice). Movement is the famous Valjoux 222 with Flyback which is in very good condition and just serviced. Attached is a nice brown leather band. These are getting thin on the ground, combined with a price to sell you have to act quickly. The last one (with relumed markers) sold at auction for appox. 13.000,- euro in May 2012, so this one really is a steal.
