Recent Arrivals

Girard Perregaux is such a well-known name in watchmaking circles that any time we get a chance at a nice on we jump at it. G.P.'s quality is tip top and we did not see many of their watches here in North America back in the day. South America, however, was importing them from Switzerland with great abandon and almost all the current finds of this stellar brand come from that part of the world, as has this one. The case of this Girard Perregaux is stainless steel (for longevity and good looks) and it measures 34mm in diameter by 41mm lug to lug, which makes it an oversize by vintage standards. The manual wind movement is a 17 jewels beauty that is winding, setting, and keeping time in excellent fashion. The dial is two toned, which is hard to see in the photo, but not in-person. If you look closely at the second photo in the "Zoom-In" views you can just barely see the hint of it, but in-person you can easily see the charcoal center of the dial. It is quite dramatic on the wrist. While you are looking at the "Zoom-In" photos take a look at the movement and the large ruby jewels it displays...its quite nice! Remember all of our timepieces come with our famous one year warranty so that you may buy with confidence.

Father Time Antiques is located in the heart of "Antique Row" at 2108 W. Belmont Avenue on Chicago's North side in a building that survived the great Chicago Fire. There is no one who has more restored vintage and antique wristwatches, pocket watches, and clocks in the Chicagoland area.

All of our work is warranted for a full year whether you purchase a watch from us or we restore one of your cherished family heirlooms.

We are family owned and operated and can give you the kind of personal service that will allow you to select the perfect watch or clock with confidence and the knowledge that our staff will give you all the service and advice that you require.

Our full time business is the acquisition, restoration, and retailing of vintage and antique timepieces. We are constantly searching for watches and clocks for our large customer base. If you have anything to sell we would like to talk to you.

Additionally if you have that one special family watch or clock that needs our special touch we would be glad to quote you a price for full restoration.
