The Laurent Ferrier Galet Classic  4 Comments


A deceptively simple looking three handed dial measuring 41mm in diameter with a discreet exhibition back that showcases its tourbillon cage with quality finish and workmanship and a new caliber that one would expect from top Swiss brands.

The Galet Classic features a “Tourbillon Double Balance Spring” which was conceived and manufactured with the master watchmakers of La Fabrique du Temps. The watch features a new escapement which has never been used before in a Tourbillon. It consists of two inversed balance springs which allow the movement to average out the negative influence of gravity by keeping the balance centred on its axis. One of the features of the hand wound movement is the highly accurate timekeeping for its 80 hours of power reserve.

As reported earlier, Ferrier will only manufacture only 20 watches a year and such the exclusiveness will cost S$270k for those considering this beautiful timepiece. Notwithstanding its prohibitive price the Galet Classic has won over influential fans to win them the coveted GPHG Men's Watch 2010.
