Oil on Canvas

Galet Secret

This spectacular and highly technical piece conceals an ingenious complication. Beneath its classic wristwatch appearance lies a mechanism conceived and developed by Laurent Ferrier: a device that pivots the dial’s two opaque crystals a full 240° like a fan opening to reveal a second hand-decorated dial.

This technique involves applying oil paint with a brush on a canvas previously stuck to a metal plate. It requires a lot of meticulousness and patience and allow to represent a subject faithfully while capturing the spontaneity of the chosen scene or otherwise to express his creativity and originality.
