A NEW FACE FOR LAURENT FERRIER'S ICONIC GALET CLASSIC!





LAURENT FERRIER the Geneva based Swiss independent watch maker is treating its iconic Galet Classic model to a completely new face!

The new ivory shade of the grand feu enamel dial is matched in perfect harmony by the red gold case further enhanced by a generous ball-shaped crown.  Its double balance-spring tourbillon movement beats with a rating precision duly certified by the Besançon Observatory!

As with all of LAURENT FERRIER's watches, nothing is left to chance and each and every detail has been meticulously chosen and crafted with enormous care.  The ivory colored dial is punctuated by black painted Roman numerals.  The gold hands are 'assegai-shaped' for the hours and minutes and baton-shaped for the seconds.  A red seconds counter at 6 o'clock is rimmed by a white gold flange that is manually bevelled and polished using a burin!



The calibre construction is inspired by the major 19th century chronometry models with their manual-winding system featuring a long-blade-type ratchet pawl system distinguished by the delicate mechanical clicking sound emitted during winding.

The movement is finished with extreme care, as evidenced by the manual decoration on the tourbillon carriage bridge.

The design of the bridges is inspired by pocket-watches and the decoration is executed in keeping with the finest watchmaking traditions, including 30 hand-crafted interior angles.
