Haute Horlogerie watchmaker Girard Perregaux just announced today the release of the Laureato Chronograph Aston Martin Edition, an absolutely stunning version of their already popular Laureato Chronograph. In this case GP has teamed up with Aston Martin Lagonda to create this new offering.
Chronographs in general are in very hot demand this year, along with trending green coloured dials, the combination of both is certainly a winner in watch enthusiast circles. I’ve personally been eyeing the Laureato Chronograph as an alternative to the Rolex Daytona, after all you’re getting haute horlogerie craftsmanship at about half the price of a grey market stainless steel Daytona 116500.
When I saw the new release today from GP I was blown away and ready to purchase, but I came to find out this new limited edition is only available in the larger 42mm size, which would be too large for my 6.5 inch wrist. This is literally the only drawback for me personally, but anyone with at least a 6.75 inch wrist and larger should be able to pull this one off just fine.
There’s one massive upgrade on the new Aston Martin limited edition that enthusiasts will love, and that’s the open exhibition caseback which is finally now showcasing the beautiful in-house caliber GP03300. On the regular production models this has always been with a closed caseback.
The dial is absolutely stunning and GP have managed to achieve the iconic Aston Martin green by applying 21 layers of paint to the dial, completing 7 full coats of paint. The dial also features a diamond pattern motif that catches light very well. The diamond pattern is a tribute to the diamond quilted seats often found in Aston Martin cars.
The Laureato Chronograph Aston Martin Edition was created in a tiny batch of 188 pieces, which went on sale through the official Girard Perregaux website and are all completely sold out now.
