quick/peek: Girard-Perregaux Tank 2532 in yellow gold

Going back to the early 1990s, an era when Girard-Perregaux just awoke from sleep again. A watch that today is rarely seen and I suspect that not that many were made at the time. It seems to resemble a classic Cartier Tank watch, but there is nothing wrong with that if done well.

And it is well executed indeed. Inside is a smooth winding manual caliber, probably Peseux based. Case is solid yellow gold and artfully crafted Roman numerals on the dial. I have seen different silver dials without numerals and even one with small seconds as well as a black dial, but I think the classic tank watch look with Roman numerals is by far the best variant.
