Girard-Perregaux Laureato 34mm – Sneak Peek Review
The movement — calibre GP013100— used is a quartz featuring a date at 3’o clock and beating at the frequency of 32,768 Hz. The movement comprises of 7 Jewels.
The movement is cased inside a 34mm diameter and 7.75mm thick case with a steel bezel set with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds totalling 0.82 cts.
The dial shows the functions of hours, minutes, and date on an option of either a silver-toned, or slate grey, or blue with “Clous de Paris” hobnail motif dial. The baton-type (enhanced with luminescent substance) hands read well against the dial and make the watch better for time readability. The glare proof sapphire crystal further aides the readability. The case-back is closed on these versions.
The watch comes on either a black or anthracite grey or white alligator with topstitching leather strap with a steel triple folding clasp. A metal bracelet in steel or 18K pink gold and steel, or 18K pink gold with alternating polished and satin-finished surfaces is also available. The watches fitted with an alligator leather strap are delivered with an additional rubber strap.
The water resistance is a basic 30m (3 ATM) on this one.
Watch Ya Gonna Do About It?
Given its 34mm diameter in size, it essentially works as a dress watch and the diamonds on the bezel elevate it to be worn at a formal occasion. Given its only 10.02mm thickness it will fit comfortably under the cuff for that boardroom meeting.
Given that the watch is not a limited edition model, we would recommend going in to a Girard-Perregaux boutique and trying one on in person to really marvel at its beauty.
Watch out for our full detailed review.
