quick/peek: Girard-Perregaux Richeville 2710

Taking a quick Sunday peek at a watch from/my/collection, the early 90s Girard-Perregaux Richeville Chronograph 2710. In the early 90s GP brought back the Richeville brand from the mid 60s, but this time bringing Tonneau and Rectangular shaped cases as they soon became characteristic for the modern Richeville.

The Chronograph 2710 as mentioned comes in the first generation of Tonneau cases with the stepped bezel design. A moderate size gives it a vintage touch nowadays. What is so nice about the 2710 that it is a no-nonsense Chronograph, no date, only 2 subdials and a manual wind movement. In fact, the manual wind movement, a modified Lemania caliber is actually quite nice and also decorated to a good standard, almost a pity you cannot see it through the solid case back.
