Girard Perregaux chronograph

Girard Perregaux makes beautiful timepieces...always have. Somehow, they manage to get the balance right to my eyes. Beautiful proportions.

Today's feature is on a chronograph - the GP Vintage Chronograph, owned by a good friend, who wanted to dress down the watch a bit, by using a NATO style strap on an otherwise dressy watch...making it suitable to wear for everyday casual dress...like jeans and a t-shirt.

Nice proportions, legible dial. Nice movement, but in this one, not visible as it has a solid caseback. I always loved the proportions and design of GP watches...maybe its my soft spot...my first high end watch is a GP Chronograph.

On the wrist, quite lovely. Dial with central minute counter for the chronograph.
