Girard-Perregaux is celebrating its 230th anniversary this year by finally launching its own e-commerce platform for watch sales.

To give customers a reason to shop direct through the brand, it has created an exclusive limited edition Laureato chronograph reference with a high tech composite case material that can only be purchased through its own channel.

The 44mm case and its bezel are both made from Girard-Perregaux’s Carbon Glass, a material formed form layers of carbon fiber and fiberglass before being baked under pressure in an autoclave. The resulting case material presents irregular, alternating layers of both opaque and translucent materials, with a tactile matte surface, forming patterns which ensures that each of the 88 pieces being produced are unique.

Here black Carbon Glass is used for the case and a striking blue shade used for the Laureato’s iconic bezel. While black-PVD treated titanium is used for the buckle, chronograph pushers and crown, even the case is milled from Carbon Glass.

Girard-Perregaux first introduced the Laureato Absolute line in 2019 as a space within the collection to experiment with contemporary takes on the classic model, which first appeared at the height of the first wave of the stainless steel sports watch in 1975.

The Girard-Perregaux Laureato Absolute Wired, which uses a 4Hz automatic chronograph movement formed of 419 components and with a power reserve of 46 hours, will first be available to customers in the US and UK, priced at $17,700 here.
