Girard-Perregaux excel at complicated masterpieces which are instantly recognisable thanks to their distinctive three gold bridges.

Absolute power – the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Absolute Chronograph 

Over the last few years the Laureato line has emerged as Girard-Perregaux's valiant hero — a sporty steel warrior well equipped to win wrists across the world. Earlier this year, at SIHH in Geneva, Girard-Perregaux unleashed their latest expression of the Laureato – the evolved Laureato Absolute.  This darkly clad watch was offered in a trio: time-only, world time and chronograph — we're going to focus only on the latter today. The case is the familiar Laureato shape, though the…

Hey! Ho! Laureato! Checking out Girard-Perregaux's hot panda chronograph

Before we start, I feel I should apologise for the above headline. Only, I'm not sure if I should apologise to the Ramones or Girard-Perregaux. Perhaps both. The Girard-Perregaux Laureato was reborn at SIHH 2017 — from humble mid-70s beginnings. Since then we've seen the sporty collection gradually expand to encompass all the usual complications and finishings – skeletons, tourbillons, perpetual calendars and the rest. But the one we're most into is, without doubt, the chronograph. In the mainline collections…

Girard-Perregaux Laureato 42mm, a sleeper in steel

Editor's note: In the world of luxury steel sports watches, the Girard-Perregaux Laureato family is underrated. More than two centuries since they started making watches, the Laureato is made by a brand that has some of the richest history in horology. In that time, Girard-Perregaux have added significantly to the art of mechanical watchmaking, with their three golden bridges tourbillon movement and their design of the first high-frequency watch which beats ten times per second. The Laureato family is also dripping…

HANDS-ON: 150 years of greatness, the Girard-Perregaux Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges 40mm 

The Triple Bridges holds a special place in the history of Girard-Perregaux, as does the tourbillon. In 1867, a watch with three bridges and one tourbillon won a prize for chronometry at Neuchâtel Observatory, and the distinctive design became a de facto logo for the brand. The striking design of the triple arrow-headed bridges is undeniably pleasing, but its origins weren't aesthetic. Constant Girard conceived this design as a method of ensuring the tourbillon was as accurate as possible. From…

EDITOR'S PICK: This Laureato is the reason why you should always bet on black

Editor's note: What is it about an all-black watch that really gets the heart racing? I mean, it's a neutral colour, like white, silver, or grey, yet just by adding a heavy dose of toner, an entire watch can be transformed. Case (and dial, and strap) in point, the black ceramic Girard-Perregaux Laureato 42mm. A luxury sports watch made, well, sportier. Since its surprise reveal a little over a year ago, the Laureato has become an increasingly significant player in the…
