Girard-Perregaux Unveils A New Laureato Absolute

Bigger, lighter, stronger.

One of the most enduring names in Girard-Perregaux’s watchmaking history is the Laureato and in 2019 it returns with three variations dedicated to the most active purveyors of luxury watches.

The latest changes to the Laureato which was shown off at this year’s SIHH includes a bigger case now measuring in at 44mm in comparison to the previous 42mm. Bigger doesn’t mean heavier though. The Swiss watchmaker employed black PVD treated titanium for the case which allows it to be lighter than the old 42mm model whilst remaining ultra strong. Water resistance is another improvement across the name which now sees all three Laureato models reaching 300m in depth.

Design-wise the trio feature striking sunburst dials with a colour gradation running from dark blue in the centre to deep black around the rim. A blue-stitched black rubber strap marries perfectly in the masculine department of the latest Laureatos.
