Laurent Ferrier Montre Ecole Vertical Satin Brushed Stainless Steel Case Nickel toned Dial
The Galet Micro-Rotor “Montre Ecole” Steel
This new case demanded a new dial, also inspired by the Laurent Ferrier School Piece “Montre Ecole” with a vertical satin-brushed finish in a dark silver hue. Assegai-shaped white gold hands and indexes point to anthracite painted indexes. The minimalist small seconds dial, free of clutter, enjoys two contracting surfaces: a snailed finish in the centre and a sandblasted outer section. Another nod to classicism is the finish of the main bridge, reminiscent of the “frosted” style of the great English watchmakers of the 18th century. Laurent Ferrier also choose a rougher decoration for its Micro-Rotor movement, recalling the original materials uses in prototyping, such as brass, which offers a contrast with steel. Further hand-finishing skills applied to the movement include shot-blasting, known as microbillé, and mirror polishing for the parts in steel, including the balance cock.
It is fitted with a dark brown alligator leather strap with Alcantara lining, secured by a pin buckle or a double blade folding clasp in steel.
