Laurent Ferrier Classic Guilloché White Gold Slate Grey Clous de Paris
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 white gold case makes a perfect match with subtly decorated dial in slate grey 18K gold. The centre is delicately hand-guilloché with a “Clous de Paris” hobnail motif, framed on the outer rim by a circular satin-brushed décor. It is punctuated by a hollowed small seconds at 6 o’clock swept over by “assegai-shaped” gold hour and minute hands, along with a baton-type seconds hand.
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.
