Girard-Perregaux is giving its flagship Laureato collection an increasingly contemporary feel, and nothing captures this better than the Laureato Absolute WW.TC, which articulates a sporting, urban vibe. This world-timer retains the sleekness and the octagonal bezel of the original Laureato, but gains in volume and depth. Broader, more assertive, as well as lighter, it comes in all-over titanium with a black PVD treatment. Inside, the famous WW.TC movement deploys one of the brand's best-known complications with a world time display coupled with a day/night indication, shown on a blue-black gradient sunburst dial. Travellers with a penchant for sport will appreciate the guaranteed 300-metre water-resistance of the Laureato Absolute case.
