Laurent Ferrier is the epitome of an independent watch-maker. His watches are representations of what traditional watchmaking should be. The casings are immaculately well-rounded and the watch mechanism delivers a smooth and precise movement. Anyone who owns a Laurent Ferrier watch will find themselves in another degree of affluence.
Based on my personal experience, I am not impressed at all with the limited edition watch. However, they did catch my attention with the Galet Traveller World. The craftsmanship of this particular timepiece is beautifully constructed. They paid close attention to detail. A refined gentleman who wears a bespoke suit can wear this watch because it fits perfectly well with the ensemble.
The Specs for this timepiece are as follows:
- Case: 18K pink or white gold three-part case, 41 mm in diameter, 10 mm thick, domed sapphire crystal in front and back, water-resistant to 30 meters, “Ball-shaped” crown in 18K gold
- Dial: Grand feu enamel cloisonné in the centre surrounded by circular satin-brushed motif “Teardrop” hour-markers in 18K gold, bevelled date window at 3 o’clock, dual time-zone aperture at 9 o’clock, 18K gold “Assegai-shaped” hands
- Movement: self-winding calibre LF230.01, chronometer-certified (Besançon observatory), natural escapement with double direct-impulse directly on the balance, micro-rotor in 18K solid gold with pawl-fitted unidirectional winding, fixed between the mainplate and the bridge of the micro-rotor and equipped with a “silent bloc” shock-absorbing system, 21,600 vph (3Hz), 298 parts, 48 jewels
- Strap: hand-sewn blue/brown alligator leather, Alcantara lining, 16 mm pin buckle or double-blade folding clasp, in 18K pink or white gold
The price of this watch costs anywhere from $62,000 US to about $75,000. I can assure you that this watch is well worth the amount you are paying for.
