In Formula One, a fraction of a second can mean the difference between success or failure. Besides aerodynamics and engine power, weight is of huge importance, with teams continuously researching new materials that provide precious weight savings.
The AMF1 team has brought its incredible understanding of lightweight materials to the world of Haute Horlogerie. The Laureato Absolute Chronograph AMF1 Edition unites two worlds, namely, micro-mechanics and the extreme performance of F1.
The new AMF1 Edition features a cutting-edge 44mm case and blends titanium powder and carbon elements taken from two Aston Martin F1 race cars used during the 2021 season, representing a first in the watch industry. Using a high-tech manufacturing process, the individual components are brought together and mixed with a tinted resin, offering superior ductility to that of steel.
Unbox the Laureato Absolute Chronograph AMF1 Edition
Join Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll as they unbox the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Absolute Chronograph AMF1 Edition ahead of the 2022 British Grand Prix.
The watch's inventiveness also extends to its strap, with the GP Rubber Alloy, presented in Aston Martin Racing Green, made of FKM rubber and carbon elements from the same F1 cars. Each watch will have its own visual identity and will look uniquely different from any other timepiece on the market.

Patrick Pruniaux, Girard-Perregaux's Chief Executive Officer, said: "From the outset, working with Aston Martin has been a joy. It has not just been a case of putting our name on a Formula One car as a sponsor – working together has led to some innovative and interesting ideas, culminating in the creation of new exciting products."
