A RARE SIGHT
AN ENDURING LOOK
LAUREATO GREEN CERAMIC ASTON MARTIN EDITION
Both Aston Martin and us operate within this rarefied world of excellence, constructing rare objects that confer lasting appeal. Sleek, contemporary and notably elegant, the design of the Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition encompasses some elements inspired by Aston Martin cars. Powerful engines, sleek contours and lightweight construction are virtues synonymous with the model with skeletonised "baton" type hour and minute hands, both light and functional. The watch dial is presented in a cross-hatch design, a diamond-like pattern found on the AM logo (1921-1926) as well as the quilted seats found in some of the car marque's high performance vehicles.
The new Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition respects these timeless elements of the first Laureato launched in 1975 but employs ultra-modern ceramic for the bracelet and case. Offered in a choice of two case sizes (42 mm and 38 mm), each reference is a limited edition and thereby destined to remain a rare sight.
The green ceramic components are particularily hard, up to seven times harder than steel, delivering incredible scratch resistance, a quality that will ensure the watch retains its showroom-fresh appearance for years to come. Another attribute of the green ceramic components is that they will never age or fade with the passage of time.
