2023-07-13

Red is the most festive color in the eyes of the Chinese, and every family prepares some objects with red elements during the New Year's festivities, in order to celebrate the occasion. As the importance of the Chinese market increases, every New Year, the major brands also have to launch some Chinese elements of the watch, and naturally, the red color is indispensable. However, it is not easy to use red color well, fashionable and not gaudy, but Girard-Perregaux has not long ago delivered a perfect answer, the new Laurel Collection Absolute Tempranillo Glory, let us also through the real picture, to appreciate this work.

To create this transparent texture of the case, Girard-Perregaux has used a new material, yttrium aluminum garnet. It is a polycrystalline, semi-transparent material, similar to sapphire crystal, strong and scratch-resistant, and possesses a darker shade in a variety of different lights, which allows the watch to present a visual effect of flowing colors in different lights. It is worth mentioning that not many watch brands have the strength to use sapphire crystal to create a case, not to mention the fact that Girard-Perregaux has developed and used even more innovative materials on top of sapphire crystal, which demonstrates Girard-Perregaux's mastery of watchmaking.

With the front out of the way, let's take a look at the back. The watch is powered by the brand's in-house self-winding caliber GP01800-1143 with a power reserve of 54 hours. Skeletonized watches are a great test of the movement's polish, and it just so happens that Girard-Perregaux has taken great care in polishing the movement, which is very meticulous and delicate no matter which angle you look at it from, whether from the front or the back to admire the movement parts.  buywatches.store
