The luxury watch made from real F1 race cars.
Since its partnership first began in early 2021, Girard-Perregaux and Aston Martin aim to bridge the two luxury worlds together with a collection of exclusive timepieces that incorporate motorsport inspiration. The performance duo has already established itself with the recent Laureato Chronograph Aston Martin Edition and Tourbillon With Three Flying Bridges Aston Martin Edition releases. Girard-Perregaux is proud to unveil the all-new Laureato Absolute Chronograph Aston Martin F1 Edition, the first watch to be designed with help from the Aston Martin Formula 1 Team. The Laureato Absolute Chronograph AMF1 Edition features a lightweight 44mm case made using titanium and carbon from two 2021 season Formula One race cars. A sunray ‘Aston Martin Green’ chronograph dial layout showcases a cross-hatching pattern that resembles the grille of an Aston Martin, with subtle hints of Green Emission on the indexes and hands.
The engine delivering power to the race-inspired watch is Girard-Perregaux’s in-house GP03300-1058 self-winding mechanical movement, operating the chronograph, hours, minutes, small seconds, and date functions. With performance and technology as its main focus, the special edition Laureato Absolute holds a lengthy 46-hour power reserve and 100-meter water resistance. The sapphire backcase offers a closer work at the complex movement in action, with a laser-etched ‘Aston Martin’ logo proudly displayed in the center. The outer portion of the backcase reveals engravings that signify Girard-Perreguax’s involvement as The Official Watch Partner of the Aston Martin F1 Team. Continuing its theme of reducing weight and adding comfort, Girard-Perregaux adds a GP rubber alloy strap in Aston Martin Green to the new Laureato Absolute. The mix of rubber and carbon is also extracted from two Formula One race cars from last year’s season, which also features a fabric effect with green contrast stitching. The all-new Girard-Perregaux Laureato Absolute Chronograph Aston Martin Formula 1 Edition is limited to only 306-pieces and is currently available through an authorized dealer for $27,800. Stay tuned into the 2022 Formula 1 Season to see Aston Martin F1 Team drivers Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel rocking the new timepiece.
