    Haven't put this on in ages, gift from my father years back. Odd thing... remembering why I don't wear it much.

    Few are aware of the connection between Girard-Perregaux and Consul, before it went to producing "questionable" watches like today, so the old ones tend to have a surprise inside. This one has a GP 42.4 movement inside and even the dial is the same as the GP Chronometer HF Gyromatic.
    Never mind the date...they didn't bother with a quick set function and I don't have the heart to keep a vintage 36k movement in the winder. :)

    This one was found, in pieces, in a metal box marked OMEGA. In the box were 3 or 4 mid-50s vintage Omega bumper movements, all in pieces. This all was amongst the stuff I acquired from my late father's estate. So this watch had sat in that box for over 40 years. Surprisingly, it was all there, except for the case. I put it all together, and it sat until OB poster Tritium from Madrid sent me a PM that he had an extra (NOS) case. As to the bracelet? About 32 years ago, a local watch material supplier closed up, and I bought a bunch of older style watch bracelets, along with a truck load of other stuff. You asked about the kind of bracelet. I had to check. I found it in my stash, again, NOS. the trade mark on it says STL, and beyond that, I know nothing. Suits the watch, I think. I succumbed to temptation, re-set the calendar, and I'll wear it for a while.

    Along with the Omega, I'm wearing my 27-year old Rolex Date-Just which I serviced in November 2016. After one regulation and re-set in late November, as of today, it is 30-seconds fast. It gained 3 seconds in February!
