The legendary Girard-Perregaux icon gets a feminine iteration with the Laureato 34

Like a masterpiece that inspires new generations of artistic creations, Girard-Perregaux's storied Laureato paints a new chapter with a diamond-embellished rendition meant for the fairer wrists. Christened as the Laureato 34, the watch revisits the contemporary lines of the maison's limited-edition 225th anniversary model, now pared down into a super slim silhouette that's at once familiar yet fresh.

Set against a satin-brushed caseband, the defining aspect of the new Laureato is undoubtedly the brilliant diamonds adorning the signature octagonal bezel — all 56 of them specifically cut into exacting sizes to fit snugly along the tapered contours. Framing a 34mm-diameter Clou de Paris hobnail-patterned dial shaded in a sleek slate gray, the quartz-powered precision piece exudes a versatile elegance paired with luminescent baton-style pointers and a discreet date display window. Ergonomically designed to ensure a perfect fit and comfortable wear, the Laureato 34 epitomises feminine classism refreshed for the modern women.

The Laureato 34 is available at the Girard-Perregaux boutique at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, L1-50, Bay Level.
