    Howdy.
    I recently bought a Girard-Perregaux automatic (UG Microtor) and have a question I'm hoping someone can help me with. This is an ultra-slim model with kind of an integrated bracelet. The case is stainless steel (so marked on the inside back) but the band is a bit weird. It has on the outside a bark like finish. The inside shows the metal cable like construction. The clasp has a hallmark on the back that has an "s" in a triangle with "18k" beneath it. I’ve posted a pic of this. What does this mean? Is it solid gold or gold filled? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Tom,
    I 'm not sure about the symbol-I would think this has to be gold by the 18 kt. Silver would be listed differently and gold filled would most likely say filled or give a time in years such as 10, 20 or 25 years.
