With these two models presented at Baselworld 2014, Laurent Ferrier pays a further tribute to traditional watchmaking by setting a new tone for the Galet Micro-Rotor line.
Laurent Ferrier has decided to offer a new interpretation of the dial with gold appliques typical of the Micro-Rotor models. A minute track runs around these new dials, while straight relief-worked Arabic numerals focus firmly on readability.
The vertical-structured black dial and the opaline silver-toned dial, both in solid silver, confirm Laurent Ferrier’s high demands in the realm of watchmaking aesthetics.
These dials with their finely balanced architecture set an original tone for these models of which the case and movement are as pure and exclusive as ever.
The Laurent Ferrier signature is clearly apparent in the curve of the white or red gold case that picks up the pure aesthetic in-house codes in the now distinctive “pebble” shape that harks back to the understated models of 19th century horological history. The “assegai-shaped” hands are stamped in order to achieve the characteristic extreme slenderness of Laurent Ferrier model; while its “ball-shaped” winding crown ensures pleasantly smooth handling.
The Atelier Laurent Ferrier has relocated to a charming historical listed building at the heart of the village of Plan-les-Ouates, near Geneva. Renovated to meet the requirements of high-end production, this workshop is entirely dedicated to the technical performance of the in-house developed and assembled calibres. It gives pride of place to new technologies, without renouncing traditional micromechanical principles. These new premises will also house a Watch Lovers’ Club that will soon be opening in order to host devotees of Haute Horlogerie.

Unveiled in January 2013, the new dial of the Galet Micro-Rotor is available in a blue version for this emblematic piece from the Laurent Ferrier collection. The gold hour-markers are tinted white in order to accentuate their readability. This new Galet Micro-Rotor is available with an 18K/750 white or red gold case.
Laurent Ferrier was awarded a prize for creativity in the context of the BORN EXCEPTIONAL CREATION AWARDS on a spectacularly beautiful day.
The ceremony took place on March 6th at the CAP HORN restaurant and was attended by a large number of personalities.
The first Galet Traveller references have left the LAURENT FERRIER workshops! Eagerly awaited by certain fans of beautiful classical watchmaking, the pieces are equipped with a Micro Rotor self-winding calibre featuring an échappement naturel in order to adapt to the adjustment mechanism of a second time zone and the date. They are currently being delivered to the four corners of the earth.
For the very first time, the GALET SECRET by LAURENT FERRIER welcomes a creative artisan’s free-spirited interpretation of a contemporary pictorial work.
Charles Belle is a contemporary artist who creates large-size paintings.
The encounter between Charles Belle, who fills space with shimmering colours, and a miniature painting specialist, has given rise to a fascinating artistic cooperative endeavour.
The entire difficulty for the enameller lies in sufficiently mastering the craft so as to ensure that the colour effect faithfully reflects the painter’s generous colour palette.
Characterised by a unique touch, subtle nuances and vibrant tone, the entire genius of Charles Belle is reproduced on the tiny scale of a dial that will be housed in a 42 mm-diameter watch creation.
This year again, Salon QP brought together the most prestigious watchmaking brands in the exceptional settings of Saatchi Gallery from the 7 to the 9th of november.
LAURENT FERRIER and its partner William and Son were glad to share their common passion to a public of fine watchmaking devotees.
