Girard-Perregaux has taken a leaf from its Haute Horlogerie background to create the 43mm diameter Laureato Tourbillon and also unveiled five Laureato Summer Timepieces.

At the Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux, summer has come in bold fashion and taken the shape of five Laureato models. The watches, which were announced recently, have striking colors that are designed to uplift the wearer’s mood and match the bright hues of summer outfits. Targeted at women the lineup has three 38mm diameter models with different colored bezels, while the 34mm version has two colors. The case of each is created from stainless steel and the timepieces have a feminine touch thanks to the 56 diamonds that feature a brilliant-cut and are set around the octagonal shaped bezel. The dial has a striking “Clou de Paris” pattern which gives it a textured finish and there are steel straps and various colored rubber straps that are paired with the timepieces.

As for the Laureato Tourbillon, the house has created it with cutting-edge materials, and it has a stellar tourbillon which is its most important feature and comes with a bridge that has a distinct arrow shape. The 43mm diameter case is made from titanium, while the case back is created from sapphire crystal. The timepiece’s movement is mechanical and features automatic winding. With a power reserve of 47 hours and waterproofing up to 30 meters, the Laureato Tourbillon is perfect for enhancing suits and is created to withstand the rigors of daily wear.
