New model?

 By: MichaelC : May 2nd, 2021-13:08
They sure have the subdials pinched close to the center. I like the outer chapter ring and markers.

I thought it was older, but thought you were recognizing a new movement in the post.

 By: MichaelC : May 2nd, 2021-13:53
Guess I better get another cup of coffee ;-)

No worries. I'm not a GP expert by any means.

 By: MichaelC : May 3rd, 2021-13:00
I thought maybe it was an older model. I recall a dealer edition dial, I want to think it was blue, and I was tempted.

What I thought.

I'm not sure it's decent...

 By: BigFatPauli : May 2nd, 2021-14:43
I mean the case is clearly far, far too big for the caliber. The totalizers are all hugging the center of the dial of gabs of space around them. It feel claustrophobic and sparse all at one.

Dear sir, your kind words made me remember a dialogue from Hannibal, the TV Series.

"Ethics become aesthetics." The calibre GP3800 is 1.9mm thinner than the Patek CH27-70, but also equipped in a case 2mm thinner than the Patek 5070. Besides the subtle difference of finishment, and considering all the additional technical features GP prov...  

I apologise for the lack of "decency" in my last post... I was using my phone, with which I do not get along.

 By: BigFatPauli : May 2nd, 2021-19:03
You are absolutely correct. Now THAT GP has a property balanced dial and matched case for the movement.

Thank you, good sir.

What I mean is people with narrow interpupillary distance may have good sight, while wider ones could have taken contact lens The industry do know our taste, yet most brands intend to satisfy us cost-savingly which I called indecently. (Just for example w...  

Superbly stated!

"Unfortunately the market / customers have also encouraged them"

 By: BigFatPauli : May 3rd, 2021-14:08
You are exactly right. And thank you for your kind words: I really appreciate it! I was was taken aback by the overwhelming response to it! I hope that I opened one person's eyes to what happened with that movement. It is the only way the market will ever... 

That was my first thought.

Beautiful watch, and GP? Impeccable quality. Still, the close set sub dials...hmmmm.

GP Vintage 45 Rattrapante Foudroyante, 375 MM and this manual winding Chrono I had the pleasure to discover when it was launched...

 By: amanico : May 2nd, 2021-16:11
I just regret the date. The movement is small, but a pleasure to see. BRAVO for this superb threesome! Best, Nicolas ...  

Dear Nicolas, on the contrary

 By: Joffre : May 2nd, 2021-17:34
I somehow appreciate the date, just like the Reverso Chronographe Retrograde did. It just add some “unruly” temperament from what people want them to be. ...  


 By: amanico : May 3rd, 2021-05:56

Beautiful JLC! The date looks much better on this watch than the GP.

 By: MichaelC : May 2nd, 2021-18:02
"unruly temperament"... I rather like that description, well said.

nice compare : Bill Evans Scott LaFaro and Paul Motian

great album and great trio and great watches, Bill Evans is my favourite jazz pianist, for me the best jazz pianist ever. Gp one of my favourite watch brand. Nice compare.

Thank you for your kind words, good sir.

It seems that we share the same taste for both watch and music. Never the less, this thread were also made on a beautiful Sunday which aroused the Waltz for Debby in my heart.

Would like to see Girard Perregaux use the GP3800 movement, in a small case

 By: jmpTT : May 23rd, 2021-16:36
34 - 37 mm looks to be the sweet spot for this movement. Is that too small for a niche watch, marketed and sold through online platforms? The 42 mm dial looks pretty good actually, but I fall in the group that doesn’t love the 5070. This watch seems to la...
