Do you remember and still have your first Girard Perregaux?

 By: amanico : February 9th, 2022-12:36
I bought the WW TC in 2002, and it was my first Girard Perregaux. This model was in white gold. I sold it in 2005, but it is still in my mind. What about you? Best, Nicolas ...

Not sure when I bought it, but I suppose almost 20 years ago. I don’t wear it that often anymore, but stil a pleasure. If you compare to today prices, you get a lot better f value! Dirk ...  

Unbelievable that this watch is

20 years old. It still looks fresh and modern. It has a timeless design for sure. And you are right: the value compared to the costs was unbeatable. Best Thomas

Ya I have always thought that bracelets with watches looks fantastic but is fairly silly due to scratches, at least for someone as anal as I can be haha. The ceramic is a perfect opportunity to have some harmless fun in that bracelet wrist game.

A very nice WT you had!

The Sea Hawk II with steel bracelet was my first Girard-Perregaux. I sold it almost exactly two years ago to fund my Moser Perpetual Purity. The GP just hadn’t got enough wrist time anymore. By the way: The wearing comfort was excellent. Best Thomas ...  

Girard Perregaux Sea Hawk II USA-71

Fell in love with the carbon fiber dial. First GP of five I've had the pleasure of owning. Still have this and one other special GP that I wear very often. ...  

I loved this one, a lot!

I still have my laureato

 By: Cookies : February 9th, 2022-13:45
The one with the black onyx dial. I bought it as a curiosity, as the pitch black dial seems to suck light in. Few months ago, a fellow member told me it was a good investment, and the resale value went up. I bought it, knowing well the resale value is bad...  

Awesome photo, mon ami.

My first GP and first real watch

 By: brauner : February 9th, 2022-14:31
Bought around 2001/2002. ...  

Yes, still have this one but it’s with my son now…

 By: Clueless_Collector : February 9th, 2022-14:51
GPs are work horses 🐎👍🏻 ...  

My first and only and a keeper.

 By: jlux : February 9th, 2022-15:36
The Laureato blue dial. My wishes for the future : a slightly reduced 1945 Vintage case and a new generation of movements with larger dimensions to allow for better dial proportions! Best, Gerard ...

Here’s mine, a real bruiser!

 By: westrop : February 9th, 2022-16:39
I love the loom on this and it is built to withstand anything. ...  

Yes, but a pleasurable one.

Because i am more a indie fanboy it took till last year for me to purchase a GP tbh

 By: Watchonthewrist : February 10th, 2022-08:08
A friend (grey market dealer) offered me one and I couldn’t say no . Not sure if its a keeper tbh Still like to add a classic Toric at some point ...  

Because i never wear it tbh 🤦🏻‍♂️

 By: Watchonthewrist : February 10th, 2022-16:32
I need to wear it when i have the chance but when i need to pick a watch for the day I almost always pick a indie 😬.

I hope to get me a classic Toric at some point

 By: Watchonthewrist : February 10th, 2022-16:36
Maybe this one would make room for that amazing watch 🤔
