After bringing Laureato firmly back into the spotlight, Girard-Perregaux orchestrates an evolution of its icon that makes it even more powerful. Laureato Absolute is a distillation of watchmaking expertise, enhanced by a broader case middle with tauter lines. This new structure, entirely clad in black PVD-treated titanium energized by an electric blue ring, is now water-resistant to 300 meters.
With Laureato Absolute, Laureato Absolute Chronograph and Laureato Absolute WW.TC, Girard-Perregaux presents a trio of radical, assertive and singular timepieces endowed with a 44mm diameter case, framing sunburst dials with a color gradation running from dark blue in the center to deep black around the rim. The white inner bezel ring with its luminescent accents accentuates the depth of the matt black hour-markers.
Perfectly integrated with the case, a blue-stitched black rubber strap is injection-molded with the names Girard and Perregaux, thus affirming its belonging to a maison of traditions. An inner force that draws its energy from the fundamentals of the cosmos as a quest for the extraordinary, for affirmations of who we are as human beings. In addition, its play on colors, black as the universe, blue as the sky, makes the Laureato Absolute a natural fit within the "Earth to Sky" theme guiding Girard-Perregaux's 2019 new launches.
The Laureato is based on a genetic code that involves changing subtle details in its appearance without ever altering its essence. Laureato Absolute reprises these fundamental principles while giving them a resolutely urban and contemporary twist.
Laureato Absolute Chronograph captures the essence of the deliberate sportiness of this series. The emblematic sports-type complication naturally finds its place in this distinguished design. The redesigned pushers are now also more angular. Their curved surface, highlighted by a blue border, ensures enhanced ergonomics.
