Girard-Perregaux Laureato Tourbillon – Sneak Peek Review
The Girard-Perregaux Laureato Tourbillon in titanium & 18K pink gold (reference: GP09510-0001) or titanium & 18K (reference: GP09510-0002) white gold marks the top of the Laureato range for the brand.
The movement — calibre GP09510 — used is a mechanical, self-winding movement using an 18K gold micro-rotor & one-minute tourbillon regulator beating at the frequency of 3.0Hz (21’600 A/h) allowing for an okay 49 hour power reserve. The movement comprises of 261 components and 33 Jewels.
The movement is cased inside a 45mm diameter and 11.96mm thick case.
The dial shows the functions of hours, minutes, and small seconds on a tourbillon on a slate grey 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 display case-back is transparent and covered with sapphire crystal.
The watch comes on a black alligator with topstitching leather strap with a titanium triple folding clasp. A metal bracelet in titanium and 18K pink gold, or in titanium and 18K white gold, with alternating polished and satin-finished surfaces is also available.
The water resistance is an okay 50m (5 ATM) on this one.
Watch Ya Gonna Do About It?
Given its 45mm diameter in size, it’s not really a dress watch and perhaps even too big for a formal occasion. Given its 11.96mm thickness it will fit under the cuff for that boardroom meeting. It can be worn over with weekend with jeans and t-shirt if someone is daring enough to do so. It would however look amazing at a watch collector’s 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.
