    I have for sale an Girard Perregaux 353 with blue dial. The movement was an important milestone in the development of accurate timekeeping. You can find some write ups here:

    https://shop.hodinkee.com/products/...h-with-quartz-caliber-353?variant=45105332175

    This watch was owned by a general practitioner who owned a few watches. I believe that the case shape is somewhat rare.

    Case: The case is in good condition generally. There are some scratches consistent with light use over time. It does not pass a pressure test. 37mm x 42mm.
    Crystal: Original. I believe that it is glass. I don't observe any scratches.
    Movement: Runs and keeps time. The battery was replaced by Nesbits in May 2021. The date changes as expected.
    Dial and Hands: They look to be in excellent condition. Note that the seconds hand is white.

    There are no associated boxes and papers.

    Price: 900 USD including shipping to the Continental US with USPS Registered (or best offer). The watch is in Los Angeles.

    Man this is nice!

    The GP quartz movements from the 70s are pretty awesome and don't come up for sale too often.

    You should post some measurements so people can get an idea of the size.
