The Laureato Absolute collection was first revealed at the 2019 Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie. Now Girard-Perregaux presents the Laureato Absolute Light, a new interpretation from the Laureato Absolute collection in an exclusive limited edition of just 88 pieces.
Blending aesthetics and functionality, this new edition transforms technical components into distinctive design elements. For the first time, the mainplate is octagonal and screwed together with the bezel, case and case-back on the eight angles of the octagon, highlighting its iconic shape.
The Laureato Absolute Light reveals the art in precision engineering – all in the shape of an octagon in a 44mm case of sapphire and titanium. Its crystalline sapphire case allows for a stunning transparent view of the movement from all sides with a perfect light reflection on its mat and polished surfaces.
At the heart of the crystal-clear case beats a reworked interpretation of the skeletonized GP01800 movement. The bold anthracite NAC-treated bridges and mainplate feature no less than four different finishes.
The distinctive shape of the oscillating weight in hollowed-out gold ensures the movement is clearly visible in Girard-Perregaux’s signature style. The black NAC-treated ring has 12 curved sections between mirror-polished triangles to act as hour-markers.
For an extra touch of modernity, the rubber strap seamlessly integrates into the watch as if it were made of a single piece. The micro-adjustment system on the buckle ensures ultimate wearing comfort as part of the supple, but highly resistant rubber strap.
