Great feedback, CJ
for the dial colour, entirely a personal choice. One thing though, I once owned a Richeville 2750 from the 90s with blue dial and after a few years, I felt that the black dial would suit me better and I just had the dial changed at the GP Service Centre in Hong Kong at that time. The cost was quite reasonable.

Girard-Perregaux Laureato: 42 or 38mm ?
Friends, I was eagerly waiting to try on the new 2017 Laureato in both 42 and 38mm to judge for myself what would be the best size for me. My wrist is not very large and I do have the 36mm Laureato 8010 from 1996 which sits well on my wrist, so I was very...
Is that the 42mm on your wrist, then?
I fully agree with you on having to try things on before making a judgement. I generally prefer my watches smaller but find that while for instance my Minerva Pythagore with 34mm works perfectly fine, the Tudor Black Bay 36mm looks tiny. There is a bit of...
Yes, that's the 42mm
my photo of the 38mm on the wrist was not good, needed to discard that as I had camera problems. Totally agree, need to try it and then decide. CC
42 has great manly proportions.
But I don't know about that date window. Should it be better when made larger? Or it could have retained the 3 o'clock marker like the previous versions
not sure what exactly you mean on the date window. Most of the time, people complain if the date window is too centered, because of a small movement. Here GP deployed a bigger movement and the date window sits at a nice spot. I think it's good as it is no...
Thank you for these shots!
Good comparison, as mentioned earlier, I find the proportions of the 42 mm better than on the 38 mm for my wrist. But even better, the 41 mm! Best Blomman
As always, get whatever you like, pay no attention to others.
38 for me
Can you make a photo comparison with the 8010?
Thanks for the great pics
and comparison. I think i prefer the design of the 41 mm with thinner logo and hour markers, but the 42mm has a better movement and WR. Does fit you well with lots of presence which you maybe feel is missing with the 38mm ?
Thanks Ron for your input
it's a hard choice between the 41 and the 42mm, in my view both are great, so either one is fine. For the 38mm, the presence is there, but having a choice with the larger models, I much prefer the larger models, just my feeling. Another person may feel th...
I actually had the good fortune of going to an AD today and finding the 42 in grey and blue and the 38 in silver. Just my two cents, but I found the 38 to be a bit insubstantial, both literally and figuratively. It just didn't feel very special to me....a...
