The name Laureato may seem surprising at first. After all, Girard-Perregaux is based in French-speaking Switzerland and Perregaux also sounds like a French name. The word Laureato, on the other hand, comes from Italian. It can be translated as academic or graduate, expressing that it is a watch for people with a high educational background. Presumably, the name was chosen because of its beautiful yet gentle sound in this language. Italian is also, after all, one of the official languages of Switzerland, making it a natural mother tongue for a child of Swiss watch technology.
The story of a comeback
The Girard-Perregaux Laureato collection was first presented in 1975. Its models back then were among the most popular luxury watches of their time and are still highly sought after among collectors. For this reason, Girard-Perregaux decided to release another Girard-Perregaux Laureato as a collectible for its 225th anniversary of the company's existence in 2016. The success of the limited anniversary model was even greater than the renowned watchmaking company had expected. That's why Girard-Perregaux decided to follow up with a complete new Laureato generation, a collection that stays true to the Girard-Perregaux Laureato tradition while meeting the demands of today's educated and elegant watch wearer. The result is these uniquely beautiful and refined watches.
