MECHANICAL WATCHES OF THE YEAR: Girard Perregaux Laureato

Girard-Perregaux Laureato Tourbillon

Girard-Perregaux is continuing the strategically important expansion of its Laureato family — re-introduced in 2016 — as a signature style for the brand.

This year we have seen highly commercial additions to the collection with a range of self-winding chronographs in 42mm and 38mm used in steel or pink gold models with black, silver-toned or deep blue Clou de Paris dials.

But we can’t resist the visual frippery of a tourbillon, so were delighted to see this 43mm beauty added more recently, which uses GP’s signature double-ended titanium arrow-shaped bridge to keep the regulator it in place.

The watch may be horologically advanced, but it is also wearable every day thanks to its lightweight construction in an 11mm deep titanium case.
