Grace Girard Perregaux Laureato 42 Mm Watch

In 1975, Girard Perregaux launched a classic-shaped quartz sports watch, with an octagonal polished bezel and an integrated bracelet. The Laureato series was born. In 2016, on the occasion of Girard-Perregaux’s 225th anniversary, the Laureato series is returning, and the anniversary limited edition is perfectly presented. This year, the complete Laureato watch series has finally been born in the limelight, and has since become one of Girard-Perregaux’s core collections. (Watch model: 81010-26-232-BB6A)

   Girard Perregaux continues the timeless classic elements of this series and gives this classic series a new vitality. The new Laureato series has nearly 30 models, including four different diameters (45mm, 42mm, 38mm and 34mm) and four models of stainless steel, gold, two-tone stainless steel and titanium, with leather strap Or metal bracelet, the variety of styles can be described as unprecedented.

   The Laureato series watch inherits the classic design of the 1970s. It is a sports watch with the elegant temperament required for daily wear. The 42mm model has a distinctive retro design and is equipped with a reliable mechanical movement designed by the brand.

   This watch has a case diameter of 42 mm and a thickness of 10.88 mm. It is made of titanium. The rock-gray dial is decorated with ‘Clous de Paris’ studs, adorned with three-dimensional hour markers and stick hands covered with fluorescent paint, and a date display window at 6 o’clock.

   The classic octagonal bezel of the watch is made of 18K rose gold, which is quite retro. With a titanium case, the classic-shaped watch also gives a colorful look.

   The watch’s rose gold crown is exquisite and small, marked with Girard-Perregaux brand acronym ‘GP’, and has a non-slip texture on the side for easy operation.

   This watch has a black alligator leather strap with black decorative stitching and a stainless steel tri-fold metal buckle.

   Laureato 42mm models are equipped with GP01800 movement. This movement is completely designed, manufactured, assembled and debugged by Girard Perregaux. It adopts traditional and delicate decoration, which is the brand’s benchmark product, a symbol of watchmaking artisanship. This watch is equipped with Cal.GP01800-0012 self-winding movement with a diameter of 30 mm and a thickness of 3.97 mm. It consists of 191 parts and can provide at least 54 hours of power reserve.

To sum up: The retro style from the 1970s is now shining again with a new look and rich and complete models. The Laureato series is a symbol of extraordinary classics, unique personality and retro elegance, while at the same time implementing the essence of its craftsmanship and design, it often makes people forget its identity as a sports watch.
