This Watch Is Made From Authentic Aston Martin F1 Car Parts
The strap is another world-first. The GP Rubber Alloy finished in Aston Martin Green uses carbon elements from the two donor cars. Creating this pioneering composition is highly technical and requires specialized equipment. Girard-Perregaux had to research the process extensively to prove that the various elements were, in fact, compatible.
“From the outset, working with Aston Martin has been a joy. We have collaborated on various projects, resulting in the production of two very different watches,” said Patrick Pruniaux, Girard-Perregaux’s CEO. “Working together has led to some innovative and interesting ideas, culminating in creating new exciting products. However, with this latest watch, we sought to work closely with the F1 side of the brand, focusing more on the idea of performance.”
