Watches featuring the design vocabulary of the 1970s are currently in vogue. Flat timepieces in stainless steel that fit perfectly on the wrist and cut a good figure when worn with a sporty t-shirt or a formal dress alike are much sought after models. One of the pioneers of this watch type was Girard-Perregaux with its iconic model Laureato. There are good reasons why we recommend this watch to you.
Girard Perregaux Laureato
A Trendsetter with the Qualities of Understatement
Subtle Style in Every Sense
The Laureato is certainly not a top dog, but a watch for connoisseurs. Nevertheless, it has a high recognition value like few other watches thanks to its octagonal bezel. The Laureato will inspire everyone with a penchant for relaxed luxury and understatement. For all others, the Laureato is simply a beautiful watch and the person who wears it displays an excellent taste. No jealousy, just appreciation. Life can be so easy.
Play of Light
What makes this watch so special? As already mentioned, its octagonal bezel is a real eye-catcher. The Laureato reveals its true visual qualities, however, only when it is worn on the wrist and the ambient light takes care of the rest. The matte-finished and polished surfaces of the case and the integrated bracelet create a spectacular play of light. This effect is further intensified by the many little pyramids of the Clous de Paris pattern adorning the dial. And depending on what model and material you choose, this effect can be increased or reduced. The Laureato is available as a ladies‘ or men’s version in stainless steel, rose gold, and ceramic. Or as Laureato Absolute in titanium.
Inner and Outer Values
Originally conceived as a quartz watch in the 1970s, the Laureato meets nowadays the requirements of haute horlogerie enthusiasts. The models are powered by self-winding manufacture calibers, which can be admired through a sapphire crystal case back. And as it should be for a sports watch, the cases are water-resistant to 10 bar. You just have to decide whether you prefer the classic three-hand watch, the chronograph, or the model with a world time display. We are sure that you will master this challenge without any problem. Enjoy making your choice!
Normally Only Visible to the Watchmaker’s Eye
For all those who like their watch to be especially exclusive, there are skeletonized Laureato models. Girard Perregaux is one of the few manufacturers in the comprehensive Wempe assortment that offers skeleton sport watches. What makes these watches so exciting is that their inner values are fully revealed. Technical features and visual effects form a symbiotic relationship.
