Laurent Ferrier Galet Traveller Globe Night Blue

Laurent Ferrier presented at the SIHH its new Galet Traveller Globe Night Blue, with an interpretation of the Earth seen by night.

The Galet Traveller was presented in 2013. A contemporary timepiece intended for globetrotters, it offers a new version of the dual-time display. In 2016, the Galet Traveller collection welcomes a new three-dimensional model: the Galet Traveller Globe Night Blue, in reference to the new dial specially designed for this timepiece.

The centre of this dial is adorned with a convex planisphere depicting the five continents in 18K white gold, surrounded by a blue enamel sea. Crafted using the age-old champlevé technique, the area destined to host the seas and oceans is hollowed out from the material before the enamel is applied. The difficulty of this exercise lies in performing this enamelling on a domed surface serving to reproduce the rotundity of the Earth and in highlighting the central five-continent motif. The edge of the continents slopes gently towards the coastlines, displaying various shades of blue.

The three-dimensional effect is reinforced by several aesthetic details. The emerged territories are painted and the world’s cities seen by night are depicted by gold leaf-adorned dots further enhancing the contrast with the oceans. Hand-finished with a circular satin-brushed decoration, the outer gold ring dips towards the central sphere, thereby accentuating the illusion of a raised globe literally balanced on top of the dial.
