LAURENT FERRIER INTRODUCES THE GALET SQUARE SWISS FINETIMING LIMITED EDITION “VINTAGE AMERICA I”

June 2, 2016

LF-front1This design was born from the collaboration between Laurent Ferrier and one of its exclusive retailers, Swiss FineTiming.

It is a great pleasure for Laurent Ferrier to have shared this moment of creativity with Swiss FineTiming and to introduce this new limited timepiece.

The Galet Square micro-rotor with “échappement naturel” in steel offers a two-tone sector dial typical of the late 1930s and unique lugs specially created for this limited edition of 10 pieces.

 

A distinctive dial

For this special edition, Laurent Ferrier offers a new composition of space on its exceptional sector dial, while respecting the aesthetic codes of its collection. The harmonious division between an outer circle with a circular satin-brushed finish and a central zone with a vertical satin-brushed finish lends the dial this two-tone effect.

The space is marked out by a black nickel gold slender and delicately accentuated raised chapter ring featuring curved markers paying a distinctive nod to the brand’s iconic drop-shaped hour-markers. This new dial is punctuated with black nickel gold Arabic numerals at 9, 12 and 3 o’clock and an applied chapter with a round cabochon cut finish, polished manually offering a beautiful volume effect and focus firmly on readability. The outer rail is complemented by blue painted Arabic numerals.

The small seconds echoes the central theme, thereby endowing this model with a perfect balance entirely respectful of the pure lines and the principles of readability cherished by Laurent Ferrier. The “assegai-shaped” gold hours and minutes hands, treated with ruthenium are stamped in order to achieve the extreme slenderness of Laurent Ferrier model; while the baton-type seconds hand set the perfect finishing touches.

 

A unique case

To highlight the unique nature of this model created specifically for Swiss FineTiming, Laurent Ferrier is revisiting its lugs offering a unique design featuring a side decoration. The timepiece is fitted with a ball-shaped winding-crown ensuring smooth and pleasant handling.The back sapphire was treated to reveal on the inner part, the Swiss FineTiming logo. The back bezel shows the number of the timepiece out of ten. Its water resistance is guaranteed to a depth of 30 metres.

Once again, Laurent Ferrier testifies to its determination and its ability to create models imbued with a pure aesthetic while also giving a preference to “bespoke” interpretations for unique occasions.
