GP in the spotlight on the Croisette

18/5/18

At the 71st edition of the Cannes Film Festival, stellar models lit up the red carpet with an official selection comprising glamorous and stylish icons from the Cat's Eye, Bridges and Laureato Collections.

From May 8th to 19th, all eyes were on the red carpet of the Palais des Festivals, where film stars glowed as they strode up the famous steps. Among the stars present on the Croisette, four actors from the watchmaking world particularly appealed to the Jury, composing a stunning male and female cast bearing the Girard-Perregaux signature.

Starlit night – Cat’s Eye Day and Night High Jewellery

This High Jewellery watch with its deep blue aventurine dial liberally strewn with golden spangles delighted the feminine audience – head in the stars, thrilled by the enchantment of glittering diamonds and sensuous curves mingling round and oval shapes. Secured to the wrist by a blue alligator strap with a gemset buckle, this captivating white gold watchmaking gem houses a mechanical heart, alternately revealing a radiant sun by day and a glittering moon by night.

Diaphanous dawn – Laureato 38 mm White Ceramic

Whether ascending red-carpeted steps or shining on a festive evening, there is no need for flashbulbs to capture the unique aura of the radiantly luminous Laureato 38 mm Ceramic White. This iconic model attired in white ceramic casually combines a sporting chic personality with the refinement of diamonds sparkling on its polished steel octagonal bezel. Its comfortable and ergonomic ultra-light ceramic bracelet accentuates its feminine allure exuding a powerful personality.

Lighter than air – Neo-Tourbillon Skeleton with Three Bridges

On an actor’s wrist, the Neo-Tourbillon with Three Bridges Skeleton is liable to steal the show. This paragon of watchmaking architecture from Girard-Perregaux draws every gaze. Supported by slender, finely rounded bridges and framed by an ultra-light titanium case, the beauty of its breathtakingly refined mechanical structure can be admired in full thanks to stunning transparency. The epitome of contemporary Fine Watchmaking in all its splendour.

Born for the stage – Laureato Chronograph

Soon after its grand comeback, the legendary 1975 Laureato is already on the billing of a successful new saga, with the leading male role played by the undeniably hunky Laureato Chronograph. Stainless steel, pink gold, 42 or 38 mm, a silver-toned, black or dark blue dial: everything looks good on this ruggedly handsome sports model. Its octagonal bezel, topping an integrated case with a supple metal bracelet, sets the perfect stage for a Clous de Paris hobnail pattern enlivened by three counters. Its natural charisma is already proving a box office hit.
