Girard-Perregaux unveiled the Laureato Absolute Crystal Rock
This is a new model that follows on from the inaugural Laureato Absolute models of 2019.
Last year, Girard-Perregaux unveiled the Laureato Absolute, a watch which highlighted the legacy of the iconic model of 1975 while at the same time evincing a strong and masculine character. Now, we are pleased to release the next chapter in this remarkable story, the Laureato Absolute Crystal Rock, a futuristic design that upholds the brand’s reputation for no-compromise craftsmanship.
This sports chronograph model is housed in a strong and light, high-tech Carbon Glass case. The dial features a sandwich-type construction, masterfully playing with depths and, in so doing, creating a fascinating and highly legible display. Lastly, the watch features a self-winding Manufacture movement, the Calibre GP03300-1058, harnessing the brand’s legendary watchmaking expertise.
HONOURING THE LEGACY. EMBRACING THE FUTURE.
Measuring 44m in diameter, this new chronograph is housed in a case formed of Carbon Glass. Carbon Glass is strong and very light. Indeed, the Laureato Absolute Crystal Rock weighs just 94 grams. This high-tech material combines layers of carbon fibre and fibreglass which is subjected to high temperatures and pressure to form a homogenous material. Thereafter, the material is milled into the desired shape. The resultant case exhibits a matte, slightly textured finish. Interestingly, the constituent layers create uneven strata within the material and are randomly aligned, making the appearance of each case unique and every watch exclusive.
THE CALIBRE GP03300
Laureato Absolute WW.TC explores one of Girard-Perregaux’s best-known complications: the WW.TC (worldtime) movement. More relevant than ever in a globalised world, this function makes its first-ever appearance in the most avant-garde model from the Maison.
The Laureato Absolute Crystal Rock is limited to 100 pieces and is available worldwide in all authorised Girard-Perregaux retailers from October 2020.
