Who is Laurent Ferrier?  1 Comments


Today I had the great fortune of having a sumptuous lunch with Mr Laurent Ferrier who was in town with his colleague, Mr Olivier Muller. As Mr Ferrier spoke no English, Mr Muller kindly translated much of the conversation. Mr Ferrier started his new brand under his name this year having left Patek Philippe where he worked for 37 years. Being one of the more senior watchmakers at Patek, Ferrier worked on almost all the high end pieces of the renowned brand.

For his first Ferrier watch, he created the Galet Classic Tourbillon Double Balance Spring that has taken the watch world by storm. At the 2010 Grand Prix de l'Horlogerie de Genève Ferrier's first watch won the prize for the Men's Watch category. But more about this watch later (check the next post).

The Ferrier atelier makes only 20 watches a year but it already plans to launch a new calibre at the coming 2011 watch exhibition in Geneva. In the metal, the Galet Classic is understated elegance and finished to a very high level. The first impression is very positive. Inspecting the watch in detail with a loupe, one can easily understand why the watch won the prize at the GPHG.
