Girard-Perregaux has added a number of new features to its latest Laureato model, bumping up the classic’s sports watch credentials.

The Laureato Absolute Ti.230 is offered in blue and grey versions and features a lightweight 44mm sandblasted grade-5 titanium case, with polished facets highlighting the metal’s matte finish.

Not only does the Absolute feature a sandwich dial, with hour marker cut outs revealing a layer of luminous material beneath, but also debuts a crown set with a rubber ring for better grip.

The watch is also only the second to feature Girard-Perregaux’s Rubber Alloy strap technology, which debuted in white gold on the brand’s recent Aston Martin collaboration, which involves metal-injected rubber and is presented here with a fabric-effect embossed pattern.

Inside is a Calibre GP03300-1060 automatic movement, which features a 46-hour power reserve, date indication and a central seconds hand.

Patrick Pruniaux, CEO of Girard-Perregaux, remarks, “With the release of the Laureato Absolute Ti 230 we wanted to create a new version of our iconic watch from 1975. This model is modern but encompasses traditional craftsmanship. The sandwich dial construction and GP’s world-premiere Rubber Alloy strap, this time incorporating titanium, are further sumptuous details that also feature on this watch. Finally, while the price may be more inclusive, the quality remains typically Girard-Perregaux and the watch feels just as exclusive as our other models.”

The grey version is available via Girard-Perregaux and its retailers now while the blue version is available exclusively through retailer Wempe’s boutiques in Germany, London and New York for the next month. Both models cost $9,300 USD.

Elsewhere in watches, Stormzy gifts Santan Dave a $100,000 USD Royal Oak.
