Watch and jewelry retailer Wempe teams with Girard-Perregaux to launch the newest model in Wempe’s Signature Collection of limited editions.

The new Wempe Signature Collection x Girard-Perregaux Laureato Chronograph is a 42mm by 12.1mm edition of the watchmaker’s well-known integrated steel-cased series. With Wempe, Girard-Perregaux has created a special copper-colored dial with a Clous-de-Paris pattern specially designed to reflect and refract light.

To enhance the light play here, Girard-Perragaux has also coated the watch’s baton-shaped hour markers and its hour and minute hands with luminous gold. Within the copper dial are the three subdials, each with a silver-colored background.

As a reminder, the running seconds is located at the 3 o’clock position while the two other counters display elapsed minutes (at 9 o’clock) and hours (at 6 o’clock). Chronograph seconds are read from a central chronograph second hand.

Inside, Girard-Perregaux’s superb automatic Caliber GP03300-2361 powers the chronograph, which offers a strong 46-hour power reserve.

“Ever since Girard-Perregaux introduced the newest generation of the Laureato collection in 2017, originally born in 1975, the model has been a top seller for Wempe,” says Ruediger Albers, President of Wempe U.S. “There are a lot of synergies between the two brands, both being independently owned and rooted in tradition; I am delighted to have the opportunity to offer such an exceptional watch to our clientele.”

The Wempe Signature Laureato Chronograph is a limited edition of 100 pieces.

Price: $18,600.
