Wempe Launches Third Model of “Signature Collection” with Girard-Perregaux

Global watch and jewelry retailer Wempe launches the latest iteration of its “Signature Collection” with Girard-Perregaux. The “Signature Collection” is a series of limited-edition and exclusive timepieces created in collaboration with the world’s finest watchmakers and available only at Wempe. The latest release with Girard-Perregaux, a 42mm Laureato Chronograph crafted from 904L stainless steel, features a striking new copper-colored dial with the signature Clous-de-Paris pattern that creates a stunning play with light. The baton-shaped hour markers and the hour and minute hands are also coated in luminous gold.

The tricompax layout with the small seconds at 3 o’clock, the minute counter at 9 o’clock and the hour counter at 6 o’clock is complemented by a color-coordinated date window between 4 and 5 9 o’clock. To provide a high contrast, the sub dials are snailed, making them easy to read. Thanks to a luminescent coating, the dial omits a green light in the dark.

Water-resistant to 100 meters, the case has a diameter of 42mm and is 12.1mm thick. Girard-Perregaux’s self-winding Caliber GP03300-2361 sets the pace behind the closed case back. The manufacture movement beats at 4 Hz and has a power reserve of 46 hours.

“We are thrilled with the new Wempe Signature Laureato,” says Kim-Eva Wempe, Owner and Managing Director of Wempe. “The eye-catching color combination of the warm copper dial with the cool grey hue of the stainless-steel bracelet really makes this watch feel special. It has a modern look, yet at the same time, still stays true to the original design of the 1970’s.”

The Wempe Signature Laureato Chronograph is limited to 100 pieces and will retail for $18,600 USD. Attached to an integrated bracelet, the watch will be available for purchase starting April 25th, 2024, at all Wempe boutiques worldwide and online at www.wempe.com.

    Emits, which means to release, not ‘omits’ which means to leave out. Otherwise a great article.
