Attention All British Racing Green Supercar Lovers!
Once more, Aston Martin is collaborating with watchmaker Girard-Perregaux to unveil a collectible wristwatch with a classic charm. To the unobservant observer, some of the timepiece’s finer details such as its full ceramic make and motor vehicle-influenced styling may be lost; nonetheless, its resplendent colour is hard to miss.
Each year, the Swiss watchmaker teams up with Aston Martin to create a timepiece that exudes the sports car magnificence. This year, they introduce the G-P Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition; it has skeletonized hands, an exceptionally featherweight ceramic case and bracelet, epitomizing the automaker’s dedication to lightweight engineering. Additionally, the same dazzling diamond pattern found on last year’s Laureato Chronograph ornaments the dial of this intricately crafted model.
The amalgamated casing and band have been handcrafted in Aston Martin Racing Green – otherwise renowned globally as British Racing Green. The tonal effect of the consistently-green shade is fairly slight in these press releases, however I expect it’ll truly stand out on the arm. Anticipate seeing one of these restricted-release items at spots such as Amelia Island and Pebble Beach in the future.
The Laureato is probably one of G-P’s most renowned and cherished collections. In this specific piece, the classic Laureato takes advantage of the company’s GP01800, 28-jeweled automated movement, featuring a 54-hour power reserve, as well as a useful water proofing rating of up to 100 meters (in case you really feel like taking a swim).
Having donned an ever more complex form of the G-P wristwatch for a season last Spring, I can easily anticipate that this Laureato will be especially noteworthy in its physical manifestation. The detail and craftsmanship of these items are sure to reach, or even exceed, the highest standards seen in pieces that I’ve personally encountered. Furthermore, this limited Aston offering shall be available in both a diminutive 38mm instance and a larger 42mm version, thus satisfying wearers of different wrist sizes.
Prospective customers should quickly get in touch with an accredited Girard-Perregaux retailer. The 42mm timepiece will be released in June and only 388 copies are available, while the 38mm one is limited to 188 units. Their prices have yet to be declared, though the regular 42mm Laureato Ceramic is sold at $20,300.
Having donned an even more elaborate version of the G-P timepiece previously last Spring, I can only assume that owning this Laureato will be a truly amazing experience.
