Girard-Perregaux Laureato 38mm Gold Case Replica Watches For Men

An important part of the process when reviewing a watch is imagining who the Girard-Perregaux replica watches are for. Sometimes this perceived wearer can be quite general: “someone who wants a nice dive watch”. Or it can be a little more specific: “a 35-year-old frequent flyer who wants to make a subtle statement with their wrist”. In the case of these 38mm gold Laureatos my imagined wearer is a little more specific. Gianni Agnelli. If you’re not familiar with Mr Agnelli, you really should be. He was one of the most stylish men of the 20th century, a politician, industrialist and international playboy. In watch circles he’s also (in)famous for wearing his watch over his shirt cuff.

So, how does all this relate to the Girard-Perregaux Laureato? Well, aside from the Italian link (the Laureato was originally designed by an Italian architect in 1975), if I had to describe this watch in two words it would be Retro-industrialist chic (I’m claiming the compound word as one). It’s really a watch that’s defined by lifestyle rather than function, an object of beauty that speaks to business, purpose and an extravagant life punctuated by long lunches.

It’s also a dressier, more sartorially suited option than the larger 42mm versions, especially on the integrated alligator strap. I really like how smart Girard-Perregaux copy watches have been with texture on this watch, the recessed circular bezel and bracelet end links are polished, adding a few glittering surfaces to the heavy, rich matt-ness of the rest of the case. Note also that the main case has an even, horizontal brush treatment, while the octagonal bezel is finished radially: smart, sophisticated stuff. The two dials, in white or grey are — if you’ll pardon the obvious metaphor — as different as night and day. The white dial is, unsurprisingly, a fresh, summery option, more casual and just begging to be worn with colourful linen, preferably on a yacht. The dark is more sombre, serious, and powerful. To bring it back to the Agnelli analogy, the light is suited more to play, while the dark is business. Having said that, either model is more than ready for either.

On the movement front, it’s worth noting that while the larger versions are powered by the newer GP01800, these 38mm versions have the GP03300, an older movement, with slightly less power reserve. It’s still a quality, in-house automatic, to be sure, but given that the two movements are essentially the same size, the decision to use the GP01800 is a little odd.

Aside from that, there’s a lot to like about this smartly sized, high-end Girard-Perregaux replica watches. Overall, the Laureato is a mature collection, full of clever details, and these full gold models will have you expressing your inner Italian industrialist in no time. Maybe it’s best to wear it under your cuff though, you’re probably not that cool.

Girard-Perregaux 1966 WW.TC Series Leather Strap Replica Watches For Sale

There’s a notable dearth of clean, reasonably sized, mechanical world-timing watches on the market, which is a shame because not only are they super cool, the complication is exceptionally useful. Well that’s about to change with the Girard-Perregaux WW.TC 1966 replica watches – a classic world-timer with thoughtfully reserved proportions, and the answer that many business travelers and frequent fliers have been waiting for. In fact, the complication is so useful, wearing a world timer creates a one of those rare instances in horology where the information on a watch is actually more readily available, than say, flipping to the “world time” function on one’s phone, or asking Siri “…what time is it in Sydney?”

In an age of increasingly pervasive globalization, the World Wide Time Control, or “WW.TC” collection from Girard-Perregaux is one of the brand’s hallmarks, powered by an in-house developed and manufactured 24-hour world time caliber. But the long-running series, now in its sixteenth year, has always been held back by its proportions and bold, sporty execution – neither of which really do the WW.TC any favors when it comes to the practicality of everyday business wear, or the discretion necessary for traveling. But for this SIHH 2017 release, Girard-Perregaux stripped out the chronograph function and reduced the case diameter to 40mm by 12mm thick, making it the most wearable (and affordable) WW.TC to date, and a worthy entry to GP’s vintage-inspired 1966 collection.
Every Girard-Perregaux leather strap fake watches in the 1966 collection is essentially a celebration of classically reserved Swiss watchmaking, paying tribute to the design cues found on pocket watches, while employing all of GP’s most essential manufacture calibers (perpetual calendars, moon phases, column wheel chronographs… that sort of thing), which until now was missing the GP03300 world time caliber. Now liberated from both the date and the chronograph modules that characterized earlier versions of the WW.TC, this automatic movement keeps things simple with a rotating 24-hour disc, a small seconds subdial at 6:00, and a generous 46-hour power reserve. The resulting execution is clean, simple, and surprisingly uncrowded given its size – a rarity with a complication that generally invites as much complexity or visual clutter as possible.

Staying true to WW.TC functionality, the crown at 3:00 operates the usual functions – hour and minute hands, and the crown at 9:00 rotates the world time disc, enabling the wearer to set the reference city indicated 12:00, and thereby get an immediate reference point for 24 global time zones at once. Visible through a sapphire glass caseback, the movement itself is nicely finished, with contrasted graining, chamfering, and Côtes de Genève stripes.
