In the wide world of Girard-Perregaux models, the Laureato line is one that we’ve seen cross our inbox the most over the past few years. There’s been different variants and evolutions of the designs, and it’s become a solid platform. There’s something to be said about a luxurious three-hander, and the new Girard-Perregaux Laureato Pink Gold models definitely catch the eye.

Let’s talk gold

For many, a gold watch – the traditional yellow gold – is the mark of luxury. I don’t dispute that, at least within the cultural context. For myself, though, I’ve never quite been a fan of yellow gold. Against my paler skin tone, it isn’t a look I prefer. So, when you have this watch coming through in 18k pink gold (sometimes also referred to as rose gold or red gold) brings a different hue, and I think it looks quite lovely. It gives that instant impact of “this is gold, friend”, but in a hue and tone that is much less common.

Let’s talk colors

Color choice can be a trick thing as well. With yellow gold, we know the standard colors that work well against it. Fortunately, many of those also carry over to pink gold as well. For this release, the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Pink Gold comes with either a sage green or ultramarine blue dial.

The dial color introduces the only other tone you’ll have in these designs. The pink gold carries over onto the indices and handset, and the date disc is color-matched to the dial. So, it’s monochromatic, but in a way you don’t often think of that term. Oh, and if you want even more color, the blue dial can be had with an alligator strap, rather than the pink gold bracelet.

Let’s wrap things up

If you could not tell, I found myself rather captured by the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Pink Gold. While I tend towards blue dials, I think the sage green actually looks the crispest here. This is a elegant watch with just a hint of sportiness in terms of design, which should make it to b e a very versatile piece. Which is good – with a price tag of $35,400 (on the strap) or $51,900 (on the bracelet), this is a watch you’ll be wanting to wear every chance you can, if not every day.
