Vintage Girard Perregaux & Co Skeleton Pocket Watch Shell Oil 1937 Advertising :
Up for sale I have a really neat vintage Girard Perregaux skeleton pocket watch. After some light research I believe this was made for the Shell Oil Company in 1937 to represent there well running motor oil with a well running watch. They were filled with motor oil but did not last long this way. I am guessing it is missing its Shell Oil medallion but has been replaced by my father with an Art Deco style attachment. Watch is really pretty, seems to be working and I love the skeleton aspect of it. A more thorough description follows. I gently wound the watch a couple times and the movements seem to all be going correctly. I'm not sure of its accuracy though and if it needs further attention. Overall there is a nice shine and pretty gloss to the bubble like face on either side. With closer detection you can see some light scuffs and scratches but these do not stand out without a much finer look. There is no harsh scratches or marks. Back is marked in several places Girard Perregaux & Co Established 1791 Special 7 Seven Jewels Shell Swiss Unadjusted...This is such a lovely piece. Buyer pays shipping and handling.
