    Laureato vs. Seventies for 8k

    Same price blue steel watch. What say you? I'm a GO guy, but that gp dial!

    GP has these nice angles making the dial/case combination very pleasing to look at and it never gets boring. The GO is a simpler watch visually, but beautiful nonetheless. I still prefer GP. But as people always rightfully say here - pick what ultimately pleases your eye and not of the random person on the forum :)

    Tough choice... but I'd go Laureato.

    The GP is visually more interesting overall. The GO: square 40 mm is big. I'd go GP...even before going for the 38 rather than the 42.

    I would go for the GP! The GO's case is very big in real life, not thick, but it takes a lot of real estate. Plus GP has a great dial and a matching date window, and I prefer GP's bracelet.

    I looked at both, and went with the GO. Both are very nice, though, and strictly a case of personal preference. It didn't hurt that I got a very good price from a GO authorized dealer. I also think the GO brand is a bit better, but again, others may well think otherwise.

    Laureato for me as well. GO is cool but it’s thick, and very broad - wears big as others have pointed out.

    the GO dial is mesmerizing. I'd be going in that direction.

    The one thing that may swing the balance in one direction rather than the other, is that the Glashutte Original has a micro-adjustment in the clasp, activated by the push button logo on it.
    If your wrists don’t change size much during the day or you are fine with the watch having a bit of freedom to move about your wrist, then that feature would be redundant, and it’ll be down to whichever looks/feels nicest on your wrist.

    Just out of curiosity, is there something you could sell to release the additional funding in order to have both?
    Also remember/be aware that the GO date wheels were changed from white to colour matched during production, within 8-12 months, iirc, and all the better for it.
    If both can be an option, I’d suggest going with the grey dial on the Seventies.

    The GP is growing on me a lot - but I personally find the seventies to look a little bloated.
