Girard-Perregaux: 9034 “Playboy” Casino Watch

Posted by

Earlier I reported about the Girard-Perregaux reference 9034 Moon Watch which were featured in the Playboy Magazine.

This time I like to report another version of the 9034 – the “Casino Watch”! Same-same but different…

When I say same, it is in the sense of they both have the same reference, other than that…

Yes, the base is same – the 34.5 mm stainless steel case, type of hands and hand painted dials…

Inside, both have the GP Calibre 12.3 which is based on the AS 1640. But here the same-same stops.

On the Casino Watch, the dial colour is dark greyish-blue almost black, the hand painted index are white – same sized. Hands blends in against the dial but with red tips…

But the biggest difference is the sub-seconds! Here we have a sub-seconds dial while on the Moon Watch there is no seconds hand at all.

The base movement, AS 1640 have a sub-seconds – most likely Girard-Perregaux chose not to use is on the Moon Watch while here on the Casino Watch they did.

T.W.O versions of the same: one with and one without the sub-seconds.

Hard to see in this photo, but the sub-seconds dial have a very nice circular patter which made the red paint for the sub-dial to spread out unevenly…

The reason for calling this the Casino Watch is that since it doesn’t have an official name, there was a voting contest among a group of collectors and the Casino Watch won!

Indeed, this is a playful watch, on the wrist – game on!
