GIRARD PERREGAUX

CLASSIC 1999 Ref. 4946

The 1999 chronograph (Classic 99) Ref. 4946 was only made between 1999 and 2002. This one was purchased in 11/14/2002 from Hyde Park Aspen CO.

In my opinion, it is among the best-looking chronographs ever offered by any brand, period. Its proportions and overall size are ideal, and the dial is so great looking. The “fit and finish” on a Girard Perregaux is the best, tied with only A. Lange & Sohne. The watch was offered with a cream color dial or this black dial, which is much rarer. In all, GP made around 500 of the 1999 chronographs. This is number 4XX. (this is per information provided via the web)

Steel case is 38mm by 13mm with long curving lugs, domed sapphire crystal, display back with sapphire crystal and pump style chronograph pushers. Signed crown. Girard Perregaux makes its own cases and movements and their attention to detail is evident.

Black dial with applied arabic numerals and large sword hands, date window between 4 and 5 o’clock, and tachymetre scale at the periphery. Three sunken subdials with concentric guilloche: running seconds, 30 minute chronograph totalizer and 12 hour totalizer.

Movement is the automatic winding in-house Girard Perregaux manufacture Caliber 3370, which is built from the base GP Caliber 3300. With 63 jewels and beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, this is a high-end movement.

Strap is an original Girard Perregaux crocodile with exposed stitching that perfectly flatters the watch and GP deployment Buckle. Watch is in great condition and is a rare find.

This is a beauty. It is very rare to find a GP with original box, papers, and tool. Defiantly a collector watch, given its limited production. Please look at all the pictures, as they are part of the description. The watch is working and a highly collectible watch. Very few left with this rare movement. Sure, to increase in value overtime, and a great addition to your collection. The condition of the watch is the same as it appears in the photos.  The watch is working.  Contact me if you have any questions first.
