News Flash: Girard Perregaux Laureato 38 Copper!
Ooooh, here we have some very good news coming from Girard Perregaux which just unveiled the Laureato Copper. Why such a joy from my side? Because I always thought that the 38 mm case was the perfect size for this watch. Add to that a moderate height with...
I love it
Too bad, deposit has been placed for another piece. You’d be proud of me on my next piece. It is very Nico-esque. GP playing it too safe recently by banging on the Laureatos. I wish they released the Seahawk once more, something brutal and fit for harder ...
This one convinces me too. It’s very well done. Next piece is around the same price as this, but from a brand starting with O. I believe you can induce/deduce what it is.=D
Yeah, an Omega in a novel material. No date and very clean pure look.
I Love it
GP did it very well this time in my opinion Size and dial I will keep an eye on this one but my solace is that I own the skeleton so I’m equally happy
Now you're talking!
Looks really interesting. Need to see it in real, but the size seems to be spot on. And I like the color of the dial.
Same movement as the infinity onyx
38 mm with the gold rotor. A bit of mix and match done here by GP. They also added the Single bridge logo which is good. (Replaced the since 1791 words). If only they would remove the word “Laureato” next 😅 It’s a nice looking dial. I tried on the 38 mm a...
I think they will need
Something at the bottom or the dial maybe a little “flat” ... I read somewhere that they add text to give the dial some “depth”. The royal oak tried to remove automatic and and put it back in. I recall for the Richeville, they eventually moved the “Richev...
Yes,a beautiful variant of the Laureato,but....
...with 38mm very small wearing. When I got my 42mm Laureato a few years ago I also tried the 38mm and both my wife and the sales lady cried out : "No way,this is way too small for you" . For everyone having a wrist size of 16cm or above : try before buyi...
Same with me.
17 cm wrist and usually 38mm wears fine : not however with this Laureato .....
after blue, salmon and green, brown/copper could well be the next fashionable colour I like it! 70s vibes all around
Very promising indeed
But suggested price perhaps a bit rich? Also, I would have preferred a titanium with copper dial… but hard to please everyone !
But a proof GP can make some amazingness.
Very nice iteration!
really excited to see they reduce the case size to 38mm. and the copper dial is stunning in these pics, will need to see it in real life. I'm intrigued with this, hopefully can give it a try very soon tfs. cheers
Here is a competitor
Pic taken a few days ago at the Chopard boutique in Sydney. It is priced 3k more than a usual Alpine Eagle with proceeds going to a Eagle conservation foundation. Not mine Not mine ...
There are other pieces which call to me
Or “haunt” me. They are the following: O-mega SM300 Bronze Gold Glashutte Original SeaQ chrono Tudor Pelagos 39mm Omega SM300 Professional Green Blancpain FF Bathyscaphe Polar Green (very elusive) Will be collecting my daytona by december, when I travel. ...
It’s not very me
The mysteries of life, are that some areas of myself I do not even see or know about (Johari’s Window). Perhaps there is a flamboyant extrovert that has not been unleashed in me. That piece was chosen for me. I wanted the Deepsea Blue piece but they bough...
I went to try the Omega Ultradeeps
I tried all of them. But held back. My fav version on books was the titanium version, however, in reality, the orange version is my favourite, after trying all on. If I could pick between the UD and Deepsea. It will still be the deepsea. Something about i...
I like it. Really like it.
Although… the too small sized movement turns me off a little bit. And I would prefer this watch with 40mm case size (but in this respect I am„special“, I know).
Going to see this in the metal this week!
I put a deposit down in Dec, and the first one arrived on Sunday. Price is a little $$, but want to check it out. I have been tempted by a Laureato, but whenever given the actual chance to buy one, I’ve passed. The Green 42 was tempting, but I have some o...
They had no idea when.
