Lau­re­ato Skele­ton

ZbBZ (Singapore) - - INTELLIGENCE -

The lat­est ad­di­tion to the Lau­re­ato fam­ily, the Lau­re­ato Skele­ton fea­tures a skele­ton move­ment and 42mm-di­am­e­ter, 10.88mm-thick case, avail­able in stain­less steel or 18K pink gold. The skele­tonised cal­i­bre GP01800-0006 forms in­tri­cate me­chan­i­cal lace mo­tifs and its bal­ance is en­sconced in an el­e­gantly fil­i­gree-worked metal struc­ture at 12 o’clock. The pre­ci­sion of this model is fur­ther re­in­forced — for the first time in a GP1800 move­ment — by the use of a vari­able-in­er­tia bal­ance, which drives the hours, min­utes and sec­onds in an open-worked in­ter­pre­ta­tion. The bridges and main­plate are re­placed by an al­ter­na­tion be­tween the struc­tural frame­work and in­hab­it­able spa­ces, much like the or­nate in­te­ri­ors of a baroque-style Ital­ian cathe­dral. Think the horo­log­i­cal ver­sion of St Pe­ter’s Basil­ica in Rome.
