For the first time in its history, the Laureato Skeleton is welcoming a new version entirely clothed in black ceramic. Girard-Perregaux is thereby introducing its emblematic model to the rich world of this material.
In 1975, Girard-Perregaux presented a sporty and original model equipped with an octagonal polished bezel and an integrated bracelet.
In 2016, the Laureato made a comeback onto the watchmaking scene, in the form of a limited edition in tribute to Girard-Perregaux’s 225th Anniversary. Following this highly successful edition, Girard-Perregaux is putting the Laureato in its rightful place: that of a contemporary watch combining a progressive, unique design with a feeling for detail, excellent timing capacity and perfect taste. These attributes are those belonging to a truly iconic watch, which finds its way through time with effortless ease.
In 2017, the curtain rises on a new chapter in the history of the Laureato model becomes a true and complete Collection available in 4 sizes: 44 mm, 42 mm, 38 mm and 34
A successful combination between assertive – sporty lines and highly classic elegance. The Laureato 42 mm is a daily watch offering a strong vintage design with a reliable in-house manufactured mechanical movement.
Every 42 mm Laureato is equipped with a GP01800 movement. Entirely designed, produced, assembled and adjusted by Girard-Perregaux, while endowed with traditional and meticulous finishes, this calibre is the spearhead of the Manufacture.
This movement, derived from the famous GP1800 caliber, is treated using a galvanic process (PVD treatment) and worked like a metal net. It enables the eye to follow the movement of energy thanks to the rhodium-plated geartrain. During this journey of discovery into the heart of a mechanical labyrinth comprising 173 components, including 25 jewels, the eyes come to rest on the sweep seconds at 10 o’clock carried by the seconds wheel. They are then in turn captivated by the quick oscillations of the regulating organ featuring a large variable inertia balance pulsating at 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour).
