Buy from a seller you know and trust.

True statement

 By: Jimmygx1 : July 18th, 2019-17:57
The seller does have 100% feedback but it is a uncommon model and brand so its hard to find points of references as if was a rolex

I can get more information if i ask the seller

 By: Jimmygx1 : July 18th, 2019-18:03
I just need to know what questions to ask cause not every dealer is gonna know in good faith if the watch has been refinished or dial swapped

Agree 100% with Spangles

Thank you ive been able to find more info on this watch

After many hours of researching its just so hard to find info on Girard-Perregaux in general

Notice that the SS versions say "Manufacture Girard-Perregaux"

 By: Spangles - Mr. Tabby : July 19th, 2019-15:39
Not sure why this is different.

Where does it say that? On the dial or caseback? [nt]

 By: Jimmygx1 : July 19th, 2019-15:45
I saw one exact same model on the internet that was nos from a reputable dealer that had the same caseback on it


 By: Jimmygx1 : July 19th, 2019-16:25
If you are talking about the dial there are two different dial configurations as well

Here is a picture of the movement
