Newsflash: Girard Perregaux Laureato Green Ceramic Aston Martin Edition.

Mar 15, 2023,10:00 AM

Here it is or should I say they are, as there are two versions, in 38 mm and  42 mm. 

The 38 mm is limited to 188 pieces and the 42 mm to 388 pieces. 

The other difference is that the 38 mm houses the Cal GP 3300, which is 25, 95 mm big, while the 42 mm has the Cal GP1800, which is 30 mm big.

Both have a green polished and satin finished ceramic case. 

Here are some press release photos. 

I find the 38 mm more appealing, personally. 

BUT... I am not a big fan of Green, which I find too trendy, and even less of the Green Ceramic. But this is very subjective, indeed. 

Now, the Cal GP1800 has my preference, for its ( finally! ) bigger size, which better fills the case, and for its longer power reserve: 54 hours versus 46. 

The price: 25, 000 USD for the 38 mmm, 25800 USD for the 42 mm version.

I’ll take the standard SS version

With which dial?

Blue of course 😉

Too trendy.

 By: amanico : March 15th, 2023-11:08

I would do this!!!

What do you think of these compared to original in steel?

I almost bought this initially but changed my mind at last minute. Source: Monochrome watches ...  

Not convinced.

 By: amanico : March 15th, 2023-11:09

I think I prefer the steel case

These colored ceramic watches (and the blue AP RO too) just look plastic and cheap to me.

I'm sure the wrist-feel is different, but aesthetically they do not look like luxury pieces. More akin to a cheap plastic Moonswatch. John

Same here. Just a "latest flavor" I guess, but I'd be surprised if these stand the test of time. Same with AP's colored ceramic.

I feel a bit differently about black ceramic but still prefer metals.

It may be that they look different in person.

 By: ArmisT : March 15th, 2023-21:11
I’m not sure why the black ceramic is acceptable, but for me it’s because I can see the brushed striations that give it character, as opposed to the smooth plastic like appearance of the blue ceramic. But at least all AP ceramic models will always be cons... 

Not sure why black works for me either, but I will definitely stick with black and regular colored metals.

Come to think of it, the gray ceramic coaxial Speedmaster is nice too. Maybe I'm just prejudiced against colors!

An excellent summary

Thanks Nicholas ☀️ Thought I’m more of a fan of steel. I do like what GP is doing here. A lot of hard work by the design team. No date would be better. No decal on the display caseback would be better. Overall, some excellent pieces at a reasonable price.... 

The woman in the photo spoils the whole thing for me

If that's their target market, what are they thinking?

I don't know....

 By: InHavenPro : March 15th, 2023-16:57
I actual like green very much, the design itself is also appealing but not entirely convincing.... Would love to see it in person of course........ Thanks for the pictures, Filip

Exactly what I fear.

yeah too bad!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : March 15th, 2023-22:01

It sure is! And it feels so comfortable too!

'room for improvement' .... Especially when I'm sitting here at work looking at my glorious AMVOXII Le Mans ........ ...  

More candid images....

This time from the monochromewatches account on Instagram.... ...  

Thanks for the candid pics

I wonder why GP did not put a gold rotor. And a Skeltonized one at that …. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Totally agree!

 By: InHavenPro : March 21st, 2023-18:14
Would look much better....

Love this

 By: keks : March 16th, 2023-18:40
Would happily wear… as for size not tried either in any metal so would have to try to know… cool reference!

I like it…

 By: p.boxster : March 21st, 2023-22:12
…and find it very interesting. Look forward seeing it in flesh - might something really different… But I am biased anyway as huge Aston Martin fan…
