In the mid-1970s, the octagonal bezel topping the integrated case and bracelet of the first Laureato featured an unusual aesthetic for masculine watches. For the new Laureato Tourbillon, the Manufacture has opted for a 43mm-diameter bezel, a decision that enables the watch to express a distinctive and dynamic personality, while safeguarding its elegant character. It is driven by the proprietary GP 09510-0003 movement of which the Tourbillon with its lyre-shaped carriage is composed of 81 parts weighing just 0.44 grams. This movement features automatic winding – in this instance enabled by a micro-rotor designed in such a way that it does not block the view of the movement’s beauty. Playing a starring role in this fascinating show, an arrow-shaped bridge holds the Tourbillon at 6 o’clock and thus imparts an immediately recognisable signature.
The new Laureato Tourbillon is endowed with a powerful identity conferred by its octagonal bezel topping an integrated case extended by the metal bracelet with its wide supple links in a perfectly flowing design. The polished and satin-brushed surfaces create subtle depth effects and enliven the watch as it plays with light. Crafted from titanium, a light and ultra-sturdy material, it is intended for daily wear. The traditional Clous de Paris hobnail dial motif lends structure and strikes a pleasing contrast with the sportier baton-type hour-markers. Blue accents on the latter as well as on the blued steel hands set the perfect finishing touches to the aesthetic harmony of the watch face.
