Men’s Girard-Perregaux Mechanical Wrist Alarm circa the 1960s. This is one cool–and practical–watch. It contains the legendary A. Schild 1475 movement, a manual wind movement with alarm complication. There are two crowns: one for winding the primary mainspring and setting the time, and a second for changing the alarm indicator disc at 6 O’Clock. When the alarm crown is engaged, a tiny hammer strikes the case back causing it to sound. The AS 1475 movement was found in the highest quality watches of the day, including models by Tudor, Abercrombie & Fitch, Bulova, and others.
This watch comes on your choice of a black crocodile or black lizard skin strap. You’ll see both in the pictures. Both options looked quite handsome and we just couldn’t decide.
It has been recently serviced by our master watchmaker.
