The Girard-Perregaux Laureato is one of the most iconic and recognizable watch models produced by this renowned Swiss brand. The history of the Girard-Perregaux Laureato dates back to the 1970s, when it was first introduced as part of the "luxury sports watch" trend. 

The Girard-Perregaux Laureato was launched in 1975. This watch was designed during a time when sports watches were gaining popularity, thanks to models such as Rolex's Oyster Perpetual and the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak. This model represented a unique and distinctive interpretation of sporty style.

The Laureato immediately caught attention thanks to its distinctive design. One of its most recognizable features is the tonneau-shaped case, with rounded corners and an octagonal bezel. This design gives the watch an elegant and sporty look at the same time. The dial features a "clou de Paris" motif, which adds further sophistication.

One of the most interesting innovations of the Girard-Perregaux Laureato was its integrated bracelet. This means that the bracelet was perfectly integrated into the case, creating a smooth and harmonious transition between the bracelet and the watch case. This feature helped define the unique style of the Laureato.

Inside the Laureato, Girard-Perregaux has equipped this watch with high-quality mechanical movements, often based on its famous GP-3100 self-winding movement. These movements have proven to be reliable and precise, granting the Laureato a good reputation in terms of horological performance.

In the years since its launch, the Girard-Perregaux Laureato has undergone several evolutions and iterations. Models in different materials have been introduced, such as stainless steel, gold and titanium. The diameter of the case has also been varied to adapt to current trends.

After being out of production for several years, the Laureato was reintroduced by Girard-Perregaux in the 2000s with the Laureato EVO3 model. This new version continued to honor the original design, but with some modern changes.

The Girard-Perregaux Laureato remains an icon of luxury watchmaking, known for its distinctive design, quality craftsmanship and its role in the evolution of high-end sports watches. Its long and successful history is a reflection of the Girard-Perregaux brand and its commitment to creating prestige watches.
