quick/peek: Girard-Perregaux Gyromatic 6250 F

Does this sound familiar? Wife goes shopping for shoes, buys a pair which she likes and not even home, “should I buy another pair in brown of the same shoe?” Never understood that. BTW, same is true for jumpers, jackets…you name it. But buying the same watch twice? How could this be justified? I could put one on a black strap and the other on a brown strap, perhaps? That works!

Girard-Perregaux Gyromatic 6250 F is one among hundreds of different Gyromatics. Silver sunburst dial, but some lovely details like the Breguet style Twelve and Six numbers. 33mm case puts this watch on the smaller side but typical of the 1960s. Inside you have the Caliber 31 Gyromatic, no date version. What makes these watches a no-brainer is that you can still pick them up for some change and if you come across an example in superb condition, no need to hesitate even if you already have the same model.

So here is the difference to shoes, which will sit in the cupboard and eventually get thrown out, a little top condition Gyromatic will always be in fashion!
