  • Catalogue Essay

    In terms of overall bombastic appeal the present Girard Perregaux Laureato Absolute Light ticks all the boxes with its superbly skeletonized movement and full sapphire crystal case.

    The Laureato was Girard Perregaux’s answer to the rising demand for sports/casual watches in the 1970s and was launched in 1975 and has remained within the Girard Perregaux collection since then.

    The present Laureato Absolute Light maintains all of the Laureato genetic codes with octagonal bezel and cushion shaped case and as the name implies it has been fully opened with a skeletonized movement and sapphire crystal case. The lugs are in titanium and enable a seamless attachment of the strap to the case.

    This model is part of an 88 piece limited edition.

  • Artist Biography

    Girard Perregaux

    Swiss • 1791

    Celebrating its 225th anniversary in 2016, the company earned its fame as the first vertically integrated Swiss watchmaking company, manufacturing high-grade movements, cases and dials within its premises. Particularly noteworthy are the brand's three-gold-bridge tourbillon pocket watches built by Constant Girard beginning in 1867 — considered amongst the most beautiful movement architectures ever made. An active participant in Switzerland's observatory chronometry competitions, the brand won so many precision awards that they were excluded from competing in 1901.

    Key models include nineteenth and twentieth century pocket watches with three gold bridges, modern tourbillon wristwatches with three gold bridges, minute repeating pocket and wristwatches, as well as sport watches such as the Laureato and Sea Hawk.
