Girard-Perregaux X Wempe Laureato Infinity Edition

Swiss luxury watch manufacture Girard-Perregaux has announced an exclusive distribution agreement with Wempe across Germany. To mark the occasion, the new Laureato Infinity Edition, available in a choice of 38mm and 42mm cases, will be sold exclusively across select Wempe points of sale in Germany as well as its New York and London flagship stores for a limited period.

The Laureato Infinity Edition is equipped with a handcrafted deep black onyx dial. Pink gold accents appear from the darkness, drawing the eyes to the information presented. This blend of aesthetic codes also features on other members of the Infinity collection, an expression of the brand’s infinite passion and unwavering respect for craftsmanship.

The Laureato Infinity is available in 38mm and 42mm options. Both versions are housed in a stainless steel case which, along with the black onyx dial, provides the perfect foil for the various indications to shine.

Silver-toned baton-shaped hour and minute hands emulate the appearance of the steel case, while the central seconds hand, applied indexes and GP logo, all formed of pink gold, reinforce the overall sense of luxury.

The date is conveyed with white numerals set against a black disc, matching the hue of the dial. The bezel of the Laureato 38mm is adorned with 56 brilliant cut diamonds totalling 〜 0.90 ct.

Both versions of the Laureato Infinity Edition feature an in-house self-winding movement, enhanced with traditional finishing and a pink gold oscillating weight. Consistent with Laureato tradition, alternating satin and polished finishes feature throughout. Great care is required when polishing the case and bracelet to ensure each type of finish is discrete with crisp delineation.

The raised octagonal bezel features convex and concave surfaces which toy with light, culminating in alternating pockets of brilliance and shade. The marriage of deep black onyx and pink gold accents delivers a becoming contrast, a trait synonymous with the Laureato name.

Wempe will exclusively distribute both versions of the Laureato Infinity edition, in 42mm and 38mm, for a limited period of two months in select points of sale across Germany as well as its flagship stores in New York and London, beginning in September 2020. Subsequently, both models will be available worldwide in authorized Girard-Perregaux retailers.
