from/my/collection: Gyromatic week, part 3: Deep Diver 7897

Continuing with Gyromatic week, let’s take a quick diversion to the Deep Diver collection. All Deep Divers were also Gyromatics, so they fit well into this weeks theme. Girard-Perregaux Deep Diver 7897 is the second generation of Deep Divers and dates back to around 1962. Already with Caliber 31 (no date here) and with a rotating bezel.

I love the Deep Divers so of course my collection has more than one 7897. I can never decide if I like the silver or the black dial more, so the only way out of that dilemma is to have both.
