BLACK IS BLACK!
The Laureato has undergone many transformations since it first launched. This year sees the Girard-Perregaux icon dressed in ultra-trendy black ceramic!
1975 marked the arrival of the Laureato range by Girard-Perregaux. What an entrance it made. The name of the new soon-to-be legendary watch is inspired by the Mike Nichols film The Graduate, released in 1967 and telling the love story of a young student and older woman. The feature film caused quite a scandal at the time. Luckily the watch collection managed to make a name for itself without sparking controversy and has stood the test of time in a variety of equally remarkable versions.
A few weeks away from the SIHH 2018, Girard-Perregaux has unveiled the latest Laureato in a material that’s been fashionable for years: black ceramic. The Laureato 42mm Ceramic simply oozes elegant design and sports chic. The only features that aren’t black are the white luminescent hands and markers. The timepiece houses a self-winding in-house GP01800-0025 calibre with a 4Hz frequency and 54-hour power reserve. The “Clous de Paris” embellished dial features the hours, minutes and seconds in the middle and the date at 3.
The Laureato 42mm Ceramic plays on its satin-finished and polished surfaces to create a seductive look and bring the watch to life in spite of its inky hue. The flexible and lightweight strap is a joy to wear and fits in perfectly with the black ceramic 42mm case. Girard-Perregaux has brought us a high precision watch with an attractive and contemporary design.
