from/my/collection: Girard-Perregaux Deep Diver 8867 V

Let’s stay with vintage for a while and take a look at a fresh shot of what I consider the best looking vintage Diver watch from Girard-Perregaux. It is up there with the Omega Seamaster, Blancpain FF or Rolex Sub. A great size in 39mm and a very elegant case with a rotating bezel and the very characteristic lumed numerals.

From around 1967/68 it came in two versions distinguished by letter V or W. Overall quite identical but with different style of hands. In the advert below, you have displayed the 8867 W with broader hands. Typically but not consistently, the W version also featured the Trident Deep Diver logo on the case back.
