Girard-Perregaux Laureato Absolute Collection – Laureato Absolute, Laureato Absolute Chronograph and Laureato Absolute WW.TC

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 energised by an electric blue ring, is now water-resistant to 300 metres.

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 44 mm diameter case, framing sunburst dials with a colour gradation running from dark blue in the centre 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-moulded with the names Girard and Perregaux, thus affirming its belonging to a Maison of traditions.

Its play on colours, 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. The three-handed plus version of the Laureato Absolute is distinguished by a red seconds hand, a symbol of strength and energy.

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.

Finally, Laureato Absolute WW.TC explores one of Girard-Perregaux’s best-known complications: the WW.TC (worldtime) movement.
