The company begins a new chapter in its history with the opening of its 8,600 sq ft boutique department store in Mayfair"s Bruton Street. Congratulations!www.williamandson.com
The Galet (pebble). Laurent Ferrier's signature, is being reinterpreted. At Baselworld 2015, Laurent Ferrier unveils its new model: the Galet Square.Technically speaking, the original Galet has become a square leaning towards a cushion shape. Laurent Ferrier has devoted particular attention to the aesthetic harmony of the model. The flowing lines designed five years ago by Laurent Ferrier have been maintained and are now housed within a new case that reprises every subtle detail. The difficulty of the exercise lay in preserving this aesthetic signature while gently shifting it towards new lines.
The Galet Square, measuring 41 x 41 mm, is intended to assert a bolder presence on the wrist than the models that inspired it.This is also the first time that Laurent Ferrier is introducing a steel case. The Galet Square, which is joining the brand’s regular collections, thereby opens up a whole new creative era for collections that had thus far been crafted only from rare and precious metals.The movement is still the self-winding FBN 229.01 calibre with unidirectional pawl-fitted micro-rotor and a three-day power reserve. This is the third in-house movement developed, assembled and adjusted in the Laurent Ferrier workshops. It is equipped with silicon escapement featuring double direct impulse on the balance.
For its fifth anniversary, Laurent Ferrier pays a delicious tribute to its four exclusive movements.To celebrate this milestone, a special series is infused with a truly delectable flavour.A keen devotee of the cocoa bean and all it implies, Laurent Ferrier reinterprets the dial of each model in chocolate tones. All models of the LAURENT FERRIER collection will be equipped with an intense chocolate brown dial graced with white chocolate-toned hour-markers.
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.We would be pleased to welcome you for a visit…the doors are open!
Laurent Ferrier has decided to adorn the Galet Classic Tourbilllon Double Spiral with a sparkling halo in tribute to his first model.48 baguette-cut diamonds (3 carats) have been set according to a demanding technique representing a unique skill. Invisible setting is indeed extremely complex, with the diamonds mysteriously held in place as if by magic, thereby ensuring perfect harmony around the bezel. Moreover, the stones are arranged in such a way that they appeal to be moulded to the sapphire crystal. The combination of these two processes endows this creation with a highly distinctive aura.
We will be pleased to celebrate our 5th anniversary with you during our private exhibition which will take place:- from January 18th to 21st, at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues,- on January 22nd and 23rd, at our Atelier (Plan-les-Ouates).For any information or make an appointment, please contact us at:email@example.comOnly for professionals.
