Born in Geneva in 1946, Laurent Ferrier took a complete training course at the Geneva Watchmaking School. Upon graduating, he began work in the movement prototype workshop of an extremely prestigious watch manufacturer. A passionate motor sports enthusiast, Laurent Ferrier pursued in parallel a career as an amateur racing driver. In 1974, he was in charge of the creation development of a range of supremely traditional products for a venerable Geneva-based company. After 37 years of working for the same firm, he decided to found a brand dedicated to fine watchmaking. His first model was officially presented at Baselworld 2010.
