Girard-Perregaux - Laureato 2016

| No comment
Girard-Perregaux introduced the Laureato watch model in 1975, in a period of disruptive changes for watchmakers.

Steel had become a serious option for luxury sport watches with many important brands presenting sporty yet elegant timepieces. Moreover, the arrival of quartz was threatening Swiss watchmakers and most of them began developing their own quartz movements. This was also the case of Girard-Perregaux, which equipped the Laureato with an in-house quartz movement oscillating at a frequency of 32,768 Hz. The dial was marked with "Quartz Chronometer" having passed a quality benchmark for precision.

The watch was also part of the emerging trend for two-toned watches mixing steel and gold. A polished octagonal bezel was embedded in a satin-brushed case with integrated bracelet.

Over the years the design of the Laureato was revamped while maintaining its distinctive traits and the collection expanded with the addition of various complications.

In 2016, Girard-Perregaux celebrates one of its most iconic models with the Laureato 2016, a limited edition of 225 pieces in stainless steel.



A polished and satin-brushed finished flexible bracelet is seamlessly integrated with the 41 mm x 10.10 mm case characterised by the octagonal polished bezel which frames a dial - white gray or navy blue - stamped with a Clou de Paris small checkerboard pattern like the first 1975 models. The sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment allows the wearer to fully appreciate the dial decoration.



The baton-shaped hands come from the original model and have been enhanced with a hint of luminescent material. At 3 o'clock the date aperture.

The Laureato 2016 features the GP03300-0030 self-winding manufacture movement visible through the transparent case back. beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, it offers a 46-hour power reserve.


Water-resistant to 30 meters / 100 feet, the new Girard-Perregaux Laureato 2016, either with silver dial (ref. 81000-11-131-11A) or with blue dial (ref, 81000-11-431-11A), has a price of Swiss Francs 14,500 / Euro 14,700 / US$ 14,300. girard-perregaux.com
