Another day at the office has passed, this time with the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Anniversary on the wrist.

Yes, it helped a lot!

Background: Girard-Perregaux atelier, circa 1950.
Interesting to see that of the watchmakers in the photo, most are woman, only the two in the front are men...

Thank you for mentioning those female watchmakers.

I would not have notice that without you noting it. Any idea why female watchmakers were more than male ones? Is it just this photo, or was it common back in the 50s?

Not sure but I have heard that...

Many consider female watchmakers better due to females in general have more patience than men... I don't know which gender is better or not but still today, a lot of female watchmakers at GP! Best Blomman

That makes sense. [nt]
