Here we have a 2022 Girard Perregaux Laureato 42 Blue Auto 81010-11-431-11A, a modern interpretation of their 1975 sporty dress watch designed by Gerald Genta who has incorporated elements found in his AP Royal Oak creation. The 42mm stainless steel case has graceful brushed and polished lines that transition perfectly drawing the eye towards the integrated bracelet, a lug-to-lug length of 49mm and a case thickness of 11mm give the watch an impressive wrist presence. On the right side, we have a signed crown with deep knurling for extra grip. An octagonal brushed and polished smooth bezel holds a flat sapphire crystal above a striking blue dial with a dynamic Clous de Paris (waffle) pattern, and an outer minute chapter ring surrounds applied bullet-shaped indexes infilled with Super LumiNova marking the hours, at 3 o’clock date window, elegant sword hands are infilled with Super LumiNova complemented by a tapered sweeping second hand. At 12 o’clock we have the applied Girard Perregaux motif and at 6 o’clock “Laureato Automatic” completes this stunning vintage-inspired and versatile sports dress watch. On the reverse a screwed-down exhibition case back, inside an automatic Girard Perregaux Cal. GP01800, 28 jewels, beating at 21,600 beats per hour, this movement was released in 2017 at the SIHH Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie Trade show in Geneva, Switzerland. The watch comes fitted on its Girard Perregaux 15mm polished and brushed integrated bracelet with a push-button release deployment clasp, the watch comes with its Girard Perregaux presentation box and paperwork.
The Laureato is an undeniable classic in its own right and this configuration in stainless steel with the blue dial is likely one of the most popular, rightfully so too. The dial is mesmerising and how the watch wears on the watch is amazing, if you've not had the chance to put this model on your wrist I'd suggest booking an appointment and seeing it for yourself, but be warned, you may leave it with on your wrist!
The brand’s origins date back to Geneva Switzerland in 1791, where Jean-François Bautte, a fine pocket watchmaker and goldsmith built workshops and created his first watches. It wasn’t until 1906 that the two companies became acquainted when Constant Girard-Gallet actually bought the Bautte company from Jacques Bautte and the modern Girard-Perregaux was formed. The brand name was established in 1856 in the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds, thanks to the marriage of Constant Girard and Marie Perregaux.
