Aston Martin Unveils Girard-Perregaux Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition
Aston Martin and Girard-Perregaux have just unveiled their latest timepiece named the Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition set to release in June 2023. This is the latest collaboration between the prestigious Swiss house and the British ultra-luxury marque, two institutions with a rich history of creating iconic products that stand the test of time, through excellence in design, materials and craftsmanship.
The exclusive watch will be offered in 38 mm and 42 mm cases and will be limited to just 188 and 388 examples respectively. In addition to the green ceramic components, the Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition has Girard-Perregaux’s skeletonized ‘baton’ type hour and minute hands. The watch dial also rocks a cross-hatch design mimicking that found on Aston Martin’s original logo used between 1921-1926 as well as on some of the quilted leather upholstery found on its current models.
“From the outset, the design of the Laureato was distinctive, yet cohesive,” Girard-Perregaux chief executive Patrick Pruniaux described. “Its styling encompassed geometric, clean-cut lines while exhibiting a slightly gentle character. Contrasting polished and satin finished surfaces, an ergonomic integrated bracelet and, of course, as always, an in-house movement… these are the essential ingredients which have made the Laureato a remarkable success. The same ingredients are much in evidence with the new Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition, along with the addition of an interesting, highly contemporary material.”
The British car manufacturer first partnered with Girard-Perregaux in 2021. Their first jointly-developed timepiece was the Three Flying Bridges – Aston Martin Edition, limited to just 18 examples worldwide and each costing an eye-watering $146,000.
