Combined with ceramic characteristics and ergonomic advantages, this watch is able to bring a better using experience for the owner. The white ceramic watches are carefully designed that are simple and stylish. The combination of exquisiteness and taste show femininity of ladies.
In addition to the overall ceramic, this collection is attractive for the delicate dial of Clou de Paris pattern.
Tips about what is Clou de Paris and how does it come from
The “Clou de Paris” has been mentioned many times by many Swiss watch brands to describe a repeating pattern. This texture pattern is like a slab of chocolate, which has a lot of squares. But if you look at it, you will find that each small square has a three-dimensional effect, which likes a pyramid or a pyramid that has been sharpened.
So, how did the name of “Clou de Paris” come from?
It is a flat carved pattern that was invented in the 16th century. Using engraving techniques and making a little bit of carved pyramidal ripples on a smooth metal surface by means of a chisel. Closer look, it has a very classical feeling of Egypt. While from a distance look, it will have a very light texture that is very elegant when under the illumination of light.
Individually, the pattern likes abundant nail caps. Maybe the nails of Paris really like this, or it was invented in Paris. Who knows, but I don’t know. Since the beginning of this pattern created, there has been the name of “Clou de Paris”, which has become a design language that luxury brands love most.
For women watch, the 38mm diameter dial is big enough. The connection of the unique “octagonal” dial, polished bezel with 56 round cut diamonds, and a smooth white ceramic case is beautiful. There is a calendar display window function at the 3 o’clock that is simple and convenient to meet the needs of daily life. The watch has the features: an automatic movement GP03300-0030, 100m waterproof, and at least 46 hours of power reserve.
The Laureato Collection is the representative of the casual fashion belongs to Girard-Perregaux. The unique and distinctive “octagonal” dial design is exquisite. Simplicity is the best living condition for people, and watches are also the embodiment of this attitude towards life.
