After a plane journey around the world, the Galet Traveller now reveals its attributes in a brand-new film. Each detail is shown in minute and vibrant detail. The gaze sweeps across the famous pebble-shaped solid gold case and the generous winding crown, before marvelling at the dial effects, the gold hands and the slender hour-markers complemented by two bevelled apertures displaying the reference time and date. A look through the back then reveals the self-winding LF 230.01 movement from the line of Micro-Rotor with natural escapement movements, which incorporates the dual-time adjustment mechanism as well as the date. One also notes that the latter is not an additional module, but instead a fully integrated complication that required no less than two years of development and is once again graced with breathtakingly beautiful finishing…
Laurent Ferrier introduces an exceptional limited series in order to highlight the latest developments of the Tourbillon Double Spiral calibre. Only 18 of these Galet Classic steel watches will emerge from the workshops.
Among the recent technical developments, Laurent Ferrier wished to optimise the efficiency of its initial calibre. The aim was to make the performance of the regulating organ even more reliable by achieving complete mastery of the escapement. Thanks to the combination of the famous tourbillon double-hairspring mechanism along with manual adjustment of this new escapement, the chronometer confirms its excellent rating regularity.
This limited edition features a gold dial adorned by hand with a sunburst guilloché motif. Delicate hour-markers punctuate the décor and accentuate the depth effect. The small seconds at 6 o’clock is slightly recessed. The case-back provides an admirable view of the extremely meticulous movement finishing: the ratchet pawl and its smooth round-polished blade, the bridges embellished with Côtes de Genève, the circular-grained mainplate, the clean-cut edges and the hand-chamfered and polished interior angles. The art of watchmaking at its purest and finest.
