The minimalist retro design of this Girard Perregaux Gyromatic is extravagant and eye-catching. The 70s diver's watch offers outstanding mechanical quality and due to its mint condition it's a super valuable collector's item.

Even at first glance, most viewers must be amazed by that timepiece. A striking retro-style dial in a large 43mm stainless steel case with black PVD coating embodies force and power. Not to be overlooked are the large orange minute numerals, which look very contrasting on the black inner bezel. Adding to the minimalist design of the dial are the many tritium elements. The beautiful creamy lume can be found on the rotating bezel in the triangle at 12 o'clock, in the small dashes under the minute numerals and in the hands. And then there's the mirrored ring with wide tritium markers and a date window at 3 o'clock. A truly exceptional and tasteful design.

The case of the Gyromatic is a so-called "Super Compressor". The deeper you dive with the watch, the harder the case back is pressed against the sealing ring, thus resulting in increased water resistance. This unique case design comes from Ervin Pequerez S.A (EPSA), who supplied the most prestigious watch brands with his case in the 60s and 70s. A typical feature of an EPSA Super-Compressor are the twin crowns on the right side of the case. The upper crown is used to turn the inner bezel and the lower one is used to wind the movement and set the time.

The heart of this watch is the Girard-Perregaux in-house caliber Gyromatic 441, which is an automatic high-frequency movement with 36000 vibrations, hence the inscription on the dial: "highfrequency". This high quality movement features a rare mechanism for date quickset. By repeatedly pulling out the crown at 4 o'clock, the date is increased by one day at a time. In addition, this caliber has a hacking second function: when setting the time, the second hand stops, so that the time can be set to the second.

However, the true reason why this one stands out from the competition is its nearly unworn condition. It's rare to see a 1970s wristwatch with such a perfect PVD coating that can truly be described as mint. Not to mention the dial, which shows no stains, spots or anything like that. And even the original Girard-Perregaux stainless steel bracelet has no signs of wear.
