A direct descendant of the original model launched in 1975, the Laureato Flying Tourbillon Skeleton features a graphically designed mechanical self-winding movement extensively open-worked. The Laureato was one of the most high-performing wristwatches of its time. The watchmakers responsible for designing the Laureato Flying Tourbillon Skeleton have opted to clothe this reference with a 42 mm-diameter case made of 18K pink or white gold, combined with a supple bracelet in the same metal with a contemporary design. The watch is powered by a Manufacture mechanical self-winding caliber featuring a flying tourbillon regulator. It’s the GP09520-0001 caliber of which the mainplate, bridges and the oscillating weight of the automatic winding system have all been painstakingly open-worked.
The elegant ‘skeleton’ work enables observers to look deep into the core of the mechanism and explore most of the 262 components of this Manufacture-made beating heart. To highlight the movement, the dial is pared down to the absolute minimum in the shape of a chapter ring with applied gold hour-markers and logo. This minimalist decor, combined with a black PVD treatment of the fixed elements of the caliber, enhances the visual perfection of the going train and ensures the flying tourbillon enjoys pride of place in this stage-setting occupying just a few square centimeters. The Laureato Flying Tourbillon Skeleton firmly establishes itself as the flagship model of the Laureato collection. UK price is in the region of £32,750.
