A celebration of light and shapes

Throughout its 230 year history, Girard-Perregaux has produced watches that masterfully play with shapes and light. Moreover, since the Manufacture released the ‘Tourbillon with Three Gold Bridges’ in 1867, it has repeatedly revealed functional components, ordinarily hidden from view, and made them aesthetic elements. The new Laureato Absolute Light Bucherer Blue incorporates all of the aforementioned characteristics, but with a notably modern twist. It is the transparent characteristic of the sapphire case which invites light to bathe the various internal parts and, in so doing, accentuate each straight line and every sinuous contour, especially of the movement within. Two titanium lugs unite the sapphire case with a strap made of GP Rubber Alloy, a world premiere unveiled by the brand earlier this year, made of grey FKM rubber alloy injected with titanium and finished with a fabric effect texture. Girard-Perregaux has chosen to pair the strap with a titanium folding clasp with a micro-adjustment system, allowing the wearer to fine tune the size to deliver the optimal wrist fit.

The Calibre GP01800

The Calibre GP01800

At the heart of this watch is the self-winding Manufacture movement, the Calibre GP01800-1652. While this timepiece may be modern, it perpetuates the Maison’s reputation for no-compromise, traditional finishing. For example, the NAC treated bridges are circular satin-finished. The movement also features several highly desirable technical features such as a variable inertia balance. When contrasted with the ubiquitous index-regulated balance, the variable inertia balance is superior, proving less susceptible to positional influence and delivering better rate stability. The octagonal mainplate of the Laureato Absolute Light Bucherer emulates the shape of the iconic bezel found on the 1975 original. It is dressed in blue PVD, Bucherer’s house colours. The mainplate is incredibly strong, preventing unwanted flex which could adversely affect reliability, and the case is formed of sapphire with titanium lugs. The sapphire sections of the case afford sublime views of the mainplate, various components like the balance and the mainspring, as well as openworked NAC-treated bridges.
