29 Jun LIST: 3 perfect Girard-Perregaux Laureatos for 3 types of Australians
Earlier this week, Girard-Perregaux presented their latest and greatest in Sydney. Sadly, Melbourne-based team Time+Tide was not able to attend, but we managed the next best thing — a chat to GP’s man of the moment, Global Marketing and Communications Director, Fabrice Dangeli. Now, Mr Dangeli is a well-travelled man of the world, so rather than ask him the particulars of his new products, we thought we’d pose him a little exercise … Now that the Laureato line encompasses everything from time-only to tourbillons, we thought we’d see if he could pick the right Laureato for three distinct types (or is that stereotypes?) of Australians. And yes, we know one of the watches isn’t a Laureato … yet.
The sporty sun-and-surf-loving Australian
“For this type of Australian, the person who loves nature and the outdoors and the beach, it has to be the 42mm steel Laureato, on a steel bracelet, with a blue dial — the watch I’m wearing right now actually.”
The cultured, urban Australian
“Ah, for me it has to be our new Laureato Chronograph, with the panda-style dial in grey and black. This watch you can wear anywhere, at the gym or with a suit — it’s a perfect day-to-day piece.”
The well-travelled Australian
“Well, you’ve made this hard for me, because we do not have a dual time Laureato … yet, and this is what you want in a travel watch. So I have to say the 1966 WW.TC, a watch which we’re very well known for.”
