Girard-Perregaux has always been a trailblazer in the watchmaking industry, consistently pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. With the release of the all-new Laureato Absolute 8Tech, they’re offering watch aficionados a real treat. Drawing from their expansive expertise in high-end materials and cutting-edge techniques, the latest model in the Laureato Absolute collection showcases a groundbreaking 8Tech method to craft an octagonal carbon case that’s as innovative as it is eye-catching. When it first debuted in 1975, the watch captured the spirit of the time, capitalizing on the quartz revolution while also celebrating the enduring charm of mechanical watches. Flash forward to today, and the Laureato Absolute 8Tech continues to honor its roots, bearing an integrated bracelet and an in-house design that showcases the brand’s talent for innovation.
The 44mm case is made of a carbon/titanium composite, achieved through an industry-first technique. This involves forming ‘stacks’ of ultra-thin layers of carbon fibers and titanium powder, which are then shaped into octagons and subjected to extreme pressure and heat. Girard-Perregaux paired this top-tier case with a sandblasted gradient grey dial, featuring an intricate sandwich-type construction, offering superb readability. Under the hood, the Laureato Absolute 8Tech boasts a Manufacture movement, the self-winding Calibre GP03300-1058, comprised of 419 components and adorned with impeccable finishing techniques like Côtes de Genève. To wrap it all up, the watch comes with a black rubber strap featuring grey stitching and a micro-adjustment system for optimal comfort. The all-new Girard-Perregaux Laureato Absolute 8Tech is currently available through an authorized dealer for $27,300.
