Girard Perregaux X Wempe Laureato Infinity Edition
Girard-Perregaux fake has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Wempe in Germany. To commemorate this moment, the Swiss luxury watch brand launched Laureato Infinity Edition, which uses polished and satin-finished 38mm and 42mm steel cases. These two watches will be sold exclusively through Wempe in Germany and flagship stores in New York and London for a limited time.
Girard-Perregaux launched the sporty and elegant Laureato with an octagonal bezel and an integrated stainless steel bracelet. Since then, the design of this watch has been known for its interplay of straight lines and curves, which combine polished and satin-brushed surfaces. Even a sports watch, its elegant features make it suitable for formal wear.
Both sizes of Laureato Infinity Edition are equipped with hand-made onyx dials, and are decorated with rose gold hour markers, silver baton-shaped hour and minute hands, and a date window at 3 o’clock. The Laureato 38mm bezel is set with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds, totaling approximately 0.90 carats.
Both versions of the watch have an internal automatic movement and are enhanced with traditional surface treatment and rose gold oscillating weight. In line with the tradition of Laureato.
According to Pruniaux, this collaboration “highlights the importance we place on our partnership and marks a positive milestone… Both of our companies have a long history and share common values, which explains why we chose this This Inifinity model serves as a metaphor for the partnership we hope to last for a long time.”
Universe Unlimited Edition
This is the latest model released in 2019. Limited to eight pieces, it showcases Girard-Perregaux‘s advanced watchmaking skills, from mechanical expertise to superb manual finishing.
This timepiece has three major watchmaking complexities: a tourbillon cage, fixed by Girard-Perregaux’s iconic Neo Bridge, which is made of grade 5 titanium and finished in black PVD processing; a globe at 3 o’clock, indicating day or night; and a celestial globe at 9 o’clock, showing the zodiac signs. Both globes are made of polished y agate and hand-decorated in rose gold using micro painting techniques. You can customize the hand-painted according to requirements.
The globe at 3 o’clock rotates 360° every 24 hours, and the globe at 9 o’clock rotates 360° every 23 hours and 56 minutes.
The winding and setting system is located on the back of the pocket luxury watch, which is based on the style of the pocket watch. The mosaic system has three carved patterns, each of which is filled with luminous ceramics to indicate the purpose of each complication.
The black onyx used on the dial is shaped and polished by hand until it has a mirror-like appearance. It takes at least 15 different operations to create a fine dial and a three-dimensional globe.
The internal movement GP09320-1440 has high-end finishing. The main board is decorated with black PVD, with round texture, sandblasting and chamfering. The movement is housed in a 47 mm titanium case.
