Here it is, in its " bed " of corks. And in all its beauty. Thanks to my business partner Julie to have let me play with it for some days. 



It is a very nice version, with its applied hours markers. And an original one, as the automatic movement feeds the alarm. While on the other alarms from the other brands, you have to separately wind the alarm. 

Best,

Nicolas

Beautiful and not common! What are the dimensions of the case?

A very nice and uncommon GP. To my eyes it looks very wearable for most any occasion.

Well done.
M4

She used to wear it quite a lot. Now, she's turning more around vintage watches... Surprising! ;) [nt]

Those numerals paired with black dial & railway track... absolutely gorgeous!

Yes, definitely. And she found it alone! ;) [nt]

Salut Nicolas, what is Julie's and your opinion about the ease of getting the movement serviced?

 
 By: LX : June 17th, 2019-11:45
The reason I ask is that I am considering to buy a 4940 for myself but I would like to avoid any unpleasant surprises when I getting a 15-20 year old watch with an A. Schild base caliber serviced. I don't have any experience with calibers by that company and I am not even sure whether they are around anymore or by which other movement maker thay have been absorbed. I think it might be ETA (which is not an "issue" for me) but then again I have no idea about what kind of magic GP has performed on the movement in order to turn it into its own caliber 2291.

Merci bien 😀

For the moment, no problem. But who knows in 20 years? The good thing is that there are many spare parts and movements available, so no immediate worries for a good watchmaker. [nt]

Thank you. If I finally make up my mind, I will give the watch to my GP AD to get it serviced in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
