Girard-Perregaux unveils the Laureato 34mm High Jewellery timepiece, dazzlingly studded with 1,791 diamonds.

Girard-Perregaux is ready to grace your wrists with their latest offering, a true pièce de résistance housed in a pink gold case. What makes this timepiece a masterpiece for watch connoisseurs is the brilliance of a whopping 1791 brilliant-cut diamonds that glisten on the wrist like a sheet of magnificence, interrupted only by the welcome vibrancy of an alluring amethyst on the crown. This model is a refined expression of the legendary Laureato, a timepiece that burst onto the watch scene back in 1975 with a groundbreaking quartz movement and intricately formed case.

The number of diamonds may seem peculiar, but it is not without reason. That number celebrates the year in which the Maison was founded—1791. Each diamond was handset using the traditional grain setting on the dial, bezel, case, and bracelet. The technique involved drilling the pink gold exterior according to the shape and size of each of the 1791 diamonds. The meticulous and painstaking process stands as a testament to the artisans’ exceptional skills. For the skilled hands at Girard-Perregaux, this tedious process took 86 hours of diamond setting.

The Laureato 34mm High Jewellery goes on sale in February at the Girard-Perregaux boutique in Geneva, operated in partnership with Bucherer. Price is available on request.
