Girard-Perregaux introduced the Laureato in 1975. Outfitted with an octagonal cleaned bezel and a coordinated arm band, this lively model immediately got one of the images of the Manufacture situated in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
In 2017, the Laureato formed into a complete assortment accessible in 4 sizes: 45 mm, 42 mm, 38 mm and 34 mm. The family is currently further extending with an openworked model accessible in hardened steel or pink gold.
The 42 mm-measurement and 10.88 mm-thick case highlighting a cleaned octagonal bezel outlined by a circle houses the skeletonised Caliber GP01800-0006 whose equilibrium wheel at 12 o’clock beats at a recurrence of 4 Hz (28,800 vph). The self-governance is 54 hours.
Totally created, delivered, completed and amassed by Girard-Perregaux, this programmed development drives the hours, minutes and little seconds.
Rather than a dial, the development is rimmed by suspended hour-markers. Surfaces are given a matt impact by glossy silk brushing, making a surface that gets and holds the light.
On the back, the rotor is cut from a square of 18K pink gold and openworked like the remainder of the development.
Completely incorporated with the case, the metal arm band is composed of connections exchanging matt and glossy silk brushed surfaces.
Water obstruction is 100 meters/330 feet for the hardened steel adaptation, 50 meters/165 feet for the pink gold one.
Costs of the new Girard-Perregaux Laureato Skeleton are Swiss Francs 32,400 in hardened steel and Swiss Francs 61,500 in pink gold. girard-perregaux.com
