Girard Perregaux's Laureato ladies collection summer edition

Girard-Perregaux brought back its recognisable 1970s sports watch, the Laureato, back in 2016 and has been expanding it as a core men’s collection ever since. However, this summer, the focus is on the ladies’ market with the launch of five new models, in two new sizes, with diamond-set bezels and vibrant colours.

The Laureato 38mm and 34mm Summer Edition 2018 are recognisable for their octagonal bezels and clous de Paris hobnail patterns on the painted-finish dials. The cases are in stainless steel, with alternating brushed and polished finishing and the bezels are bedecked with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds in both models. All five are offered in both steel-bracelet and rubber-strap versions (with the seamlessly integrated straps matching the colours of the dial), each limited to 75 pieces.

The Laureato 34mm is available with either a candy pink (Rosa Prezioso) or sea-green (Turchese Purezza) dial, with matching straps or steel bracelets. The dials are the tone-on-tone colouring of the date window at 3 o’clock. Inside the smaller watch’s case is a Swiss quartz movement, the in-house-manufactured GP13100 which Girard-Perregaux has rendered its signature finishing and has opted to put on display through a clear sapphire caseback , a rare finish for a quartz watch.

The three dial iterations of the Laureato 38mm are dark blue (blue Infinito), purple (Viola Armonia), and yellow (Giallo Luce). Their cases are water-resistant to 100 meters, as opposed to the 30-meter water resistance of the 34-mm cases, and like their smaller counterparts the screwed-down casebacks feature sapphire windows to show off the movements.

These movements, however, are not quartz but self-winding mechanicals, namely Girard-Perregaux’s in-house Caliber GP03300, which powers the watch’s hours, minutes, central seconds and date display. Made of 218 components, it boasts a 46-hour power reserve in addition to its host of decorative finishes, including a circular grained mainplate, a côtes de Genève pattern on the rotor, and satin finishing, beveled chamfers and blued screws throughout the bridges and plates.
