Jun 15, 2009
Girard-Perregaux introduces the Laureato Bol dOr Mirabaud chronograph 2009 to mark the 71st edition of the Bol dOr Mirabaud.

As a sponsor of the Bol dOr Mirabaud for the third year, Girard-Perregaux has once again launched a timepiece on the occasion of the biggest inland regatta in Europe.

The Laureato Bol dOr Mirabaud chronograph stands out due to the brand's up to date approach.

While manufacturing this watch, Girard-Perregaux emphasizes again that fine watchmaking and competition sailing share the similar values high professionalism, great patience and passion are among them.

The Girard-Perregaux Product Creation and Development department has paid a thorough attention to the development of the Laureato. Perfectly designed through the involvement of Luigi Macaluso, President of the watchmaking manufacture, the project is passed over to the company's Process engineering and R&D.

Then, after all the aspects of the concept properly tested, the timepiece is eventually produced and in-house assembled.

Ideal for nautical activities, the Laureatos bezel, crown and pushers are decorated with rubber. Its titanium-forged case boasts corrosion resistance every sailor is familiar with.

The chronograph in question can be successfully used in the course of competition. Its flyback function provides accurate different racing time readings.

Besides, the chronograph's central hand happens to be very useful for getting an exact countdown for the extremely important ten minutes before the start of regattas.

This very time is clearly demonstrated in the zone between 12 and 2 o'clock - the first five minutes highlighted in blue and the following pre-start phase five minutes highlighted in red.

So, some of the competitors will become soon happy owners of the thirty pieces released especially for the event.
