As a sign of its commitment and deep respect for the cause promoted by the Monaco Association against Muscular Dystrophy, Girard-Perregaux has created a one-of-a-kind model especially for this year’s edition famous Only Watch auction.
This unique watch is based on a contemporary interpretation from the Laureato collection presented last January at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie. Its broader diameter and taut lines make the Laureato Absolute Chronograph a distinguished timepiece exuding an aura of deliberately sophisticated forcefulness. Pleasingly lightweight due to its black PVD-coated titanium case and water-resistant to 300 metres, it embodies a quiet strength harbouring a distillation of technology.
Attired in the blue and dark grey colours of Only Watch 2019, the Laureato Absolute Chronograph radiates a charisma accentuated by its distinctive interpretation of the attributed Pantone shades: an anthracite sunburst dial, blue hour-markers, hands and second hand, edging on the push-pieces in the same shade and finally the delicately polished and deep azure-lacquered ONLY WATCH logo adorning the screw-in case-back.
