One streamlined silhouette, one characteristic octagonal bezel, but so many variations. That’s Girard-Perregaux’s 2018 POV for its Laureato, the watch for every inclination. The latest, in ceramic, are good to look at and even better to wear.

 

The 38mm Ceramic White

The material is on its case and bracelet. Complementing all that whiteness:  a polished steel bezel set with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds, flanked by a matching steel crown. For more texture, the bracelet alternates satin-brushed H-shaped links with domed and polished interlinks. $25,500.

 

The Skeleton Ceramic

Polished and matte ceramics ensure a uniform finish without rendering it flat black throughout. To lend contrast to the skeleton movement: a rotor carved from a block of 18K pink gold. $54,300.
