Laurent Ferrier Grand Sport Tourbillon Pursuit
LAURENT FERRIER is proud to announce the launch of its brand-new timepiece. Inspired by the thrills of motor racing and the pursuit of excellence, this watch features a stunning salmon-pink dial that captures the breathtaking beauty of the sky at dawn. For the two founders of LAURENT FERRIER, both of whom have driven many times in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, sunrise is the perfect time of day to be behind the wheel on the famous Sarthe circuit. The Grand Sport Tourbillon Pursuit is a tribute to this incredible experience, and to the passion that drives LAURENT FERRIER.
For Laurent Ferrier and François Servanin, driving at dawn on the 24-hour track was an experience like no other. As the rising sun, still hidden, tinted the sky with an orange- pink glow, both men have found themselves alone on the Mulsanne straight, the roar of a Porsche 935 their only co-driver. Once met by this rosy hue, any notion of victory or defeat, fatigue or ardour — even ambition for the final ranking — faded away. All that remained was immense joy, and the thrill of imagining that they were the sole privileged spectators of this extraordinary ballet of light. It was a moment beyond time, a brief oasis of peace amid the frenetic pace of the race.
Just after that moment, the men felt truly alive. As if reinvigorated by the incredible spectacle they had just witnessed, they pushed their abilities and those of the car to the limit, throwing themselves even harder into the pursuit of victory. Those memories of dawn on the circuit are treasured, and it is their indelible image, imbued with poetry and grace, that LAURENT FERRIER wished to capture with the Grand Sport Tourbillon Pursuit.
This new version of the Grand Sport Tourbillon features a case with an integrated bracelet, made entirely of grade 5 titanium and adorned with an elegant dial with gradient shades of salmon-pink . Previously launched in different, highly limited editions, this new version is intended to be timeless, and will therefore become part of the brand’s permanent collection. However, as with each LAURENT FERRIER design, the Grand Sport Tourbillon Pursuit will be highly exclusive, with only 15 pieces manufactured each year.
The new sunrise dial features an opaline finish, an understated signature of the Grand Sport Tourbillon. Its pink hues contrast with darker drop-shaped applied indices in white gold treated with ruthenium and enhanced with white Super-LumiNova, giving the dial perfect legibility. Hallmarked with the LF signature, the famous Assegai-shaped hands complete the piece. Here in ruthenium-treated white gold, the hands have been enlarged a little to hold white Super-LumiNova. A slightly domed sapphire crystal gives this exceptional timepiece a rounded profile, which is comfortable to wear.
