Laurent Ferrier Retro Black
These original interpretations of the Square Micro‑Rotor embody a return to Art Deco codes with their 1930s aesthetic characteristic. Unmistakably modern, this artistic style is based on a certain geometric rigour, minimalism and graphic stylisation. LAURENT FERRIER is exploring Arabic numerals for this new design. Finely transfered here with an Art Deco touch, the Arabic numerals are combined with a modern, architectural hour circle.
This automatic calibre features a natural escapement. It offers two exclusive characteristics: a micro-rotor pawl-fitted automatic winding system, assisted by an exclusive silicon double-direct impulse escapement fitted directly on the balance, inspired by the father of modern horology, Abraham-Louis Breguet. This modern construction, associated with the use of cutting-edge materials, maximises the restitution of energy.
The exceptional finishes of the movement are crafted in the finest watchmaking traditions. In addition to a Côtes de Genève pattern on the bridges and the circular graining on the mainplate, the flanks are hand-drawn, the wheel spokes are bevelled, the screw heads are polished, and the interior angles of the balance-cock are hand crafted with a burin. The micro-rotor bridge is hand polished.
