Laurent Ferrier Classic Guilloché White Gold Sunburst Dial
The Galet Classic watch has decisively proven its worth since being presented in 2010, earned enviable distinctions such as in the 2010 Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix in the men’s watch category.
The Galet Classic is an elegant and efficient timepiece, equipped with an exclusive in-house movement developed, assembled and adjusted in the Laurent Ferrier workshops.
The curve of the case reflects the brand’s pure, restrained design codes. It is pebble-shaped (galet in French) in a nod to the large and refined historical watch models. It is equipped with a ball-shaped winding-crown ensuring more pleasant handling.
The mechanical hand-wound movement, visible exclusively through the sapphire caseback is fitted with a double balance-spring tourbillon device crafted in the finest traditional manner with a rating precision duly certified by Besançon Observatory
The platinum case makes a perfect match with the hand-decorated 18K gold dial with a textured guilloché sunburst motif that alternates shine and shadow and emphasizes on relief effect. The “teardrop” hour-markers blend into the décor and accentuate its depth effect. The small seconds are still at 6 o’clock, slightly recessed and rimmed with a gold decorative fillet.
As with all watches bearing the Laurent Ferrier signature, each detail of this version of the Galet Classic has been meticulously chosen and crafted with rigorous care.
In endowing the Galet Classic with such attributes, Laurent Ferrier demonstrates its unconditional respect for classical fine watchmaking. Time should have no hold over this model that displays an authentic sense of detail.
