In 2018, the Galet Annual Calendar Montre Ecole earned the award of GPHG in the Men’s Complication category. This distinction gave Laurent Ferrier the opportunity to offer a new line to this award-winner caliber.

For this edition, Laurent Ferrier was inspired by the Black and White contrast and purity of the Chess Board. Two opaline dials complement the current collection.

Entirely designed in-house, the Galet Annual Calendar School Piece Opaline Black & White embodies all the values and spirit, Laurent Ferrier infuses in all his creations.
These timepieces were developed with the aim of ensuring extremely smooth handling, while also ensuring visual balance, readability and performance in all circumstances – all values dear to Laurent Ferrier.

With its date and month fast-adjustment by simply turning the crown forward and backward, these timepieces offers a great experience to the wearer.

For its annual calendar complication, Laurent Ferrier decided to pay a tribute to its first manual winding movement: The tourbillon double hairspring. The new caliber features a long “blade” type click ratchet which became a distinctive signature.
