September 2022 Sales (LATEST)
Ever felt so captivated and charmed by a style that you would want to see it every season? Like a dress, for instance, that you would want to get in every color and every pattern possible? That’s the case of the Laureato timepieces by a luxury horology giant, Girard-Perregaux. Decades after the release of the original Laureato, it has made a lot of comeback in the past years that made it a familiar name in the industry. The label’s liking to the pristine quality and design of the watch prompted it to make it better and better each time, and we can’t help but be grateful that after seeing many of the new releases of the Laureato, GP opened 2018 with the release of the Laureato Chronograph.

Release Date: 2018 (Original Laureato in 1975)
The Laureato was introduced three years after the launch of the Royal Oak Jumbo, and while it has been compared to the Royak Oak favorite, it stood its own and became a well-loved piece. The most recent release of the Laureato Chronograph cemented even more the powerful identity of Girard-Perregaux’s Laureato.

One would see immediately why Laureato is a loved timepiece for more than 40 years even after a quick look at the Laureato Chronograph. Stunning design elements are all in place, starting from the “Clou de Paris” hobnail dial. The colors, depth and quality of the details are highly impressive, getting in the mix of the excellent legibility of the panda dial plus the contrasting beauty of the hands against it. Its beauty can be somewhat personal too, with GP giving its customers the chance to pick their own choice of versions: black dial with teal subdials, white dial with black subdials, and solid 18K pink gold. Its beauty is definitely breath-taking but not overbearing, a piece great for daily wearing.
There’s no bad tea to spill on the Laureato models, especially when its design and style has been well-received for four decades now. But with the Laureato model, the price point could be too steep for many, as its release this 2018 has almost doubled the lowered price of Laureato 2017 models.
