The Girard-Perregaux Laureato 2016

The Girard-Perregaux Laureato 2016 does not simply hint at its heritage, it pays a faithful tribute to the first Laureato series which was released back in 1975. An “everyday” watch is a must-have item. It is the timepiece which you can rely on, the one which is at ease on your wrist regardless of the occasion and it is the one which will forgive the infliction of a few micro-scratches as you go about your business.

The new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept Supersonnerie is not simply a "chiming" watch, but rather a timepiece which houses a musical instrument in miniature within its sculpted watchcase. When the company released details of the first version of this piece last year, the RO#1, not surprisingly there were ripples of excitement in the industry. Perhaps it would be over-egging it to say that they had rewritten the rule book of Minute Repeater mechanics, but certainly
