Girard-Perregaux has made a black ceramic version of its Laureato Skeleton.
The all-black watch uses different finishes and textures to bring additional interest to its skeletonised dial and movement, along with its ceramic case, bezel and bracelet.
“The new Laureato Skeleton Ceramic is thus not uniformly dark. It continues to play with light thanks to its surface effects, including that of its Clou de Paris hobnail-patterned dial. This mastery of lighting is also a key feature of the movement,” the company says.
An interesting detail on the underside of the watch is the rotor of the Laureato Skeleton Ceramic. Carved from a block of 18ct pink gold, it has been meticulously open-worked like the rest of the movement so that you can see all the way through the watch. “It allows light to pour through the watch, like a stained glass window, punctuated by the warm detailing provided by the rotor and the balance wheel,” GP says.
