Girard-Perregaux Ref 8772, Modernist design

Jul 11, 2016,00:34 AM


quite some time ago, I should you Ref 8772 in Gold case and gold dial from my collection. A very unusual design with a UFO like case, very thin and quite small (~32mm) but very unique design.


I had also shown this black dial version, I had pursued but not managed to find (yet)


Now I did find another version, with steel case this time and a silver sunburst dial with horizontal lines. A real eye-catcher.


Does that remind you of something?

Yes, It's like a half Damier smile


So much fun digging into these vintage wonders of GP.

GP is such an interesting brand...

...very creative and innovative in vintage. I am a bit less attracted with their present catalogue (except the 1966 line in which there are some quite attractive and appealing models IMHO) but the history of the brand is so rich and full of nice surprises... 

Very true, Mike.

the vintage GP world holds many wonders. For the current catalogue, I would also add the Vintage 45 as a very interesting line with many appealing models. Best, CC

Oh yes, the horizontal lines are cool!

Bravo to you to have made the connections between both models! Enjoy

Never had seen such horizontal lines before on a GP dial

Hi all, Just joined the site due to the fact that this is the only website on the internet where i've seen any reference to the Girard Perregaux 8772 W. I came across one myself and just got it serviced by my watch guy. Working like brand new! Anyone have...

Hi, Terrific pieces. I was wondering if you could tell me what pieces like this are valued at? This one is on Ebay right now for $882, being sold in Japan. I have been collecting the 9034 hand painted dials, but I really am beginning to appreciate these. ...
