Ferrari split second Foudroyante

Feb 09, 2019,04:20 AM

This is also watch that I have for over 20 years. It is a Ferrari split second Foudroyante. This Girard Perregaux is a 18k white gold case and is made for limited numbers of 150 pieces to celebrate the establish of Ferrari 70th years. The movement was offered to Girard Perregaux, Panerai and Graham. Just to share with all who love Girard Oerragaux.

I like your combo of the lume numbers and hands on black dial in white gold case. Great entry to the forum with that one! CC

Urban legend says it’s a very fragile watch, is it true?

You Nico want to make me spend as much as possible...

mine has no problem either after 20 years

 By: Jeremy Wang : February 10th, 2019-16:46
but I seldom wear it. no more than 5 times, each time less than 30 minutes. And everytime I push the button, the 1/8 second hand works very smoothly.


 By: tactictac : February 11th, 2019-03:10
Thank you Wang, other opinions of possessors, if possible that he used more...

go for it, my friend

 By: Jeremy Wang : February 11th, 2019-03:32
don't worry, lots of people have it and it works just fine. I am recently trying to find the same 1/8 split second movement on Panerai.

the plate of my GP

 By: Jeremy Wang : February 14th, 2019-02:58
this is the plate for Foudroyante. It was attached on the box of the watch but the skin of the box was peel off because the use of environmental materials. I think a lot of each boxes use this kind of materials. I don't understand why watch company uses t...  

There are two main barrels one to power the foudroyante and one to power the watch?

 By: Light15 : August 23rd, 2019-05:56
If you do not wind the watch at the crown, will the power reserve for the foudroyante run down? Or does the crown and the hand movement power both barrels?

Mine in white gold and leaf hands say hi!

It is certainly not as robust as some other chronos but then it is not like other chronos! Mine is on its way to the spa in Switzerland for a service and it had stopped working properly. Old photo.

Still waiting for a quote

 By: chikai168 : August 25th, 2019-02:43
Hi, The foudroyante hand is running out of sync..... it doesn’t “spin” at a consistent rate of 1/8 of a second. And sometime the chrono stops on its own after a while. These symptoms developed over time and it is high time for a service. I spoke with the ... 

appreciate your insight....

 By: Light15 : August 25th, 2019-07:44
Okay. I spoke to UK GP and this model is so complicated it is Geneva for service. Sounds like one has to live with the watch being alive and fragile, until there is a point at which a service becomes essential. I bought the watch with a few problems, but ... 

That doesn’t sound right

 By: chikai168 : August 25th, 2019-16:33
The foudroyante hand should not move when the main chrono Hand stops. Also, it does not have its own escapement. (Such as the El Primero Defy 21) Seems like yours need to be serviced too! BW, Chi Kai

True....I wondered since the basis numbers on the watch are so good...if someone asked for the foudroyante to be switched to operating when the chronograph not on at their own service?

 By: Light15 : August 26th, 2019-10:33
With your foudroyante, does it reset along with the chronograph second and minute counter hands? Is this movement a vertical clutch or a horizontal clutch? I would suspect horizontal, because 7750 base?

All fixed.

 By: Light15 : September 19th, 2019-04:21
My watchmaker (who specialised in Omega and Zenith) fixed the flying seconds to link with the chronograph/rattrapante, without needing parts. Pure joy

Here is the video I posted on YOUTUBE. Enjoy.
