Yes, identical to the Breguet Type XX, but I know quite nothing about Vintage GPs. Like you, I am curious to hear what the " conoscienti " have to say. Best, Nicolas

Here's the inside!

Here are some pics of the watch opened....does this help to identify it? ...  

'Type XX'-type watch by GP!

I inquired about a similar but not quite the same watch in December last year and got help from one very kind fellow collector. He could not quite help me to track the history of my watch but he could document the history of your watch. What I learned was...

Your GP watch is really sharp looking! Thanks for sharing what you know about my watch...

Looks as if yours is also flyback

On the movement, am I right reading 'seventeen 17 jewels Girard Perregaux & Co unadjusted' (all upper case)? Mine has just one additional line below that reads 'Swiss'. May I ask you to check whether the movement bears the same inscriptions as mine at... 

Just one more picture

Sorry for the scar in the middle of the picture. My watch but not my picture. I had to erase the name of seller... Best- Z'

very nice! I will try to get a better look at the details inside my watch and will post a better pic.

Some more info. from inside my watch

My camera is not picking up the details so here is what's inside my watch: SEVENTEEN 17JEWELS GIRARD-PERREGAUX & Co. UNADJUSTED FA SR 20

See here details below the balance, closest to the case

Do your watch exhibit similar details? Best- Z' ...  

Hey Z ... here are better photos of inside details

 By: ttwins : July 10th, 2012-09:09
so what do you think...are they the same movements? I don't see SWISS on mine....any idea what this watch might be worth? ...  

Hi ttwins

Thanks for the better pictures. Alas I can't really see on your pictures whether there are similar inscriptions beside the balance just as on mine. We never discuss the value of watches on this forum. This forum is for exchanging ones interest/ passion fo... 

Thanks Z!

Thanks Z for checking out my better photos....my watch isn't running at this time but I showed it to a watch repairer and he said it looks really nice inside and probably just needs a basic cleaning to get it operational.

one more question for you Z

 By: ttwins : July 11th, 2012-18:31
You mentioned that your watch has the rare Valjoux cal. 720 with 'retour en vol/ flyback' chronograph function....how can this be identified and judging from my photos...does my watch have this too?
