Measuring 44mm in diameter, this new chronograph is housed in a Carbon Glass case. Formed from layers of carbon fibre and fibreglass which are then subject to high temperatures and pressure, the case material ultimately becomes homogenous. Unlike any other manufacturing process of other types of carbon, this innovation guarantees a full water resistance. Thereafter, the material is milled into the desired shape. The resultant case exhibits a matte, slightly textured finish. Interestingly, the constituent layers create uneven strata within the material which are randomly aligned, making every watch unique. The bezel employs the same manufacturing process as the case, however, it is further enriched with electric blue hues which emphasize Girard-Perregaux’s signature octagonal shape. On this occasion, the Laureato Absolute Wired is limited to just 88 pieces, delivering a notable degree of exclusivity.
Girard-Perregaux has fitted this emblematic case with its self-winding chronograph movement, driving two counter and small seconds as well as a date display. As well as guaranteeing impeccably accurate timekeeping, it is distinguished by its comfortable power reserve and the particularly smooth activation of its pushers. Its horological qualities are complemented by exemplary finishing including “Côtes de Genève”, chamfering and straight graining, all stemming from the multiple skills cultivated within the Manufacture.
