From a generational family of watchmakers, Laurent Ferrier is the emblematic figure of a brand that bears his name. After completing the training course at the Geneva Watchmaking School, he began his watchmaking career by working in the movement prototype workshop for one of the most prestigious watch manufacturers, Patek Philippe. After nearly 4 decades of working for the same firm, Laurent Ferrier took on the challenge to create his own brand.
Representing a subtle blend of traditions and contemporary techniques, the Laurent Ferrier Galet Classic Tourbillon appears as a simple time-only wristwatch at first glance. Showing off a tourbillon is common practice nowadays but Laurent Ferrier hides its tourbillon to the back, allowing the wearer to appreciate the impeccably clean and delicate dial. Turning the Galet Classic Tourbillon over affords a glimpse of the exquisite craftsmanship and also reveals the double spiral tourbillon. The double spiral tourbillon mounted two balances in opposition and thus their radial forces cancel out, reducing friction and increasing precision and reliability. Naturally, the use of a tourbillon is to compensate the effects of gravity, but this construction conceived by Laurent Ferrier guarantees an even greater reliability for this regulating system.
Accompanied by all of its original accessories and an additional Laurent Ferrier buckle, the present watch is offered in excellent condition.
