Girard Perregaux: durability

Ya, I think everything will be perfectly fine in the vast majority of cases. I think you would have to be very unlucky to shatter the case, and probably won't have any issue at all unless you are very rough with the watch. Hopefully nothing bad would happen, but I think a more likely issue (although

Girard Perregaux: GP Ceramic

I've had the solid dial version of the black ceramic Laureato for a short time now, and I'm absolutely loving it.

Girard Perregaux: Thanks for your thoughts so far...

Yes my personal opinion is that any resemblance to or inspiration from the RO doesn't detract from the watch...I was just wondering how often this "issue" is brought up to people who own the watches. That is a good point that most manufacturers don't have a continuous time line from their beginning.
