the/gp/chronicles wristshots

wristshot: Girard-Perregaux Laureato 4266 TA, the original one.

Wristshot, 18th August: took my 1975 Laureato with blue waffle dial out for a spin, so a good opportunity to take a fresh wristshot. Yeah, it is quartz…

background/report: Girard-Perregaux and the quartz revolution

but it also means I can just pick it up from the box and put it on when there is no time to wind and set. In the Laureato from 1975 you have a much improved and thinner quartz movement than in the first Caliber 35x and also battery life is similar to modern quartz watches.
