Girard-Perregaux Richeville ‘Tonneau Chronograph’ circa 1995

The Girard-Perregaux Richeville is a typical example of a pre-owned luxury bargain. Why, I hear you ask?

What sets this Tonneau-shaped, 1990’s chronograph apart is its strong design and quality finishing. Its all-polished, 35 mm measuring case, with beautiful angles, bevels and the Roman numerals that decorate the sophisticated, steel brushed, waffle dial. In addition, this watch is from an era, which is rising in relevancy and popularity in the worldwide watch-collecting community. Prices for quality pieces from the 1990’s are rising. Examples for this are well-designed models from Chopard, Blancpain and Corum.

When considering its value proposition, one cannot help but marvel at the stark contrast to other timepieces in the market. While the Richeville offers a glimpse into the world of luxury at a fraction of the cost, its counterparts command exorbitant prices – with the lowest-priced Girard-Perregaux chronograph, the 38 mm ‘Laureato’, fetching circa €14.500 and the time-only 1966 priced at € 7,500. Even more staggering is the pre-owned cost of a Cartier Tortue Chronograph, which starts at close to € 45,000.

For those with a discerning eye and an appreciation for the finer things in life, the Girard-Perregaux Richeville ‘Tonneau Chronograph’ represents a hidden gem. A treasure waiting to be unearthed!

This is your chance to obtain a very well made, yet ‘undiscovered’ 1990’s gem, with a Lemania chronograph movement, with a dial which is both brushed and waffled, with ‘Breguet’ hands, for under € 3.000 euro…
