Laurent Ferrier - Galet Classic Dual

Laurent Ferrier Galet Classic Dual

Unveiled at SIHH 2017, the Galet Classic Dual answers to the request of Laurent Ferrier’s customers and collectors who wished to admire the spectacle of the Tourbillon not only from the movement but from the dial as well.

For Laurent Ferrier the only way to achieve this challenge was to keep the original design intact, keeping the tourbillon in its original position, while creating a space to unveil the tourbillon cage from the dial-side. A specifically-developed bridge with two arms supporting the regulating organ was created. This element with such a singular shape, combined with a strong functional role, was extremely difficult to finish: this tiny component features vertical satin-brushing, shot-blasting and hand-polishing of the sink and angles.

In a Galet Classic, because of the seventeen interior angles, the finishing on the tourbillon cage takes up to fifteen hours just for the bottom cage bridge. In this new version, the decoration achievement is seen from the two sides as the interior angles are decorated on both sides. The cage is extremely light and thin as well, providing the quest for greater transparency with another opportunity to reveal the technicality and the high standard of decoration of the tourbillon. It was made possible by increasing the amount of space and light for the regulating organ.

To provide a perfect presentation, the Galet Classic Dual is housed in a 41 mm white gold case. The dial offers circular satin-brushed chapter ring. The delicate contrast between the chapter ring and the silver-toned vertical satin-brushed finish in the center is accented further by a railway minutes track painted in slate grey.

To show the time, the Assegai-shaped white gold hands with a ruthenium treatment stand proudly against a light background. The tourbillon enjoys pride-of-place in an aperture at the six o’clock position. A sculpted arc draws the eye to the tourbillon.

The Galet Classic is fitted with a blue alligator leather strap with Alcantara lining. The strap is secured by a pin buckle or a double-blade folding clasp in 18K white gold.
