Sunday delight, a pair of Girard-Perregaux Automatic/Date Chronometer's

Some delight on a lazy Sunday: a pair of Girard-Perregaux Automatic/Date Chronometer's!

To the left, Richeville - to the right, Chronometer HF.

A lot of similarities here - the C-shaped case, silver dial, applied index, chronometer, automatic movement, date...

But there is one significant difference, Richeville Automatic Calibre 32-19 (21.600 vph) vs. Gyromatic HF. Calibre 32A (36.000 vph).

You might say these two marks the steps before and after GP went into High Frequency!

Superb pair The Richeville pie-pan dial has a very special charm

and the fact that it is a pre-HF Chronometer makes it quite special.

Yes, the Richeville is very different from what we are used to see!
