The Classic Tourbillon watch has decisively proven its worth since being presented in 2010, earned enviable distinctions such as in the 2010 Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix in the men’s watch category.
The Classic Tourbillon is an elegant and efficient timepiece, equipped with an exclusive in-house movement developed, assembled and adjusted in the Laurent Ferrier workshops.
The curve of the case reflects the brand’s pure, restrained design codes. It is pebble-shaped (galet in French) in a nod to the large and refined historical watch models. It is equipped with a ball-shaped winding-crown ensuring more pleasant handling.
The mechanical hand-wound movement, visible exclusively through the sapphire caseback is fitted with a double balance-spring tourbillon device crafted in the finest traditional manner with a rating precision duly certified by Besançon Observatory
The red gold case makes a perfect match with the ivory shade of the grand feu enamel dial punctuated by black painted Roman numerals. The gold hands are “assegai-shaped” for the hours and minutes and baton-shaped for the seconds. A red seconds counter at 6 o’clock is rimmed by a white gold flange that is manually beveled and polished. As with all watches bearing the Laurent Ferrier signature, each detail of this version of the Classic has been meticulously chosen and crafted with rigorous care.
In endowing the Classic Tourbillon with such attributes, Laurent Ferrier demonstrates its unconditional respect for classical fine watchmaking. Time should have no hold over this model that displays an authentic sense of detail.
