Today Moscow, tomorrow Sydney, yesterday Rio. Long-haul flights cross oceans and timezones. Fortunately, the watchmaking is there, faithful and precise. It marks out time to enable us to keep one foot in temporal reality. With the Classic Traveller, LAURENT FERRIER offers to cross timezones with a simple gesture on the wrist. At the touch of a button, the timezone is updated. The Classic Traveller thus takes on all the world's times with a single touch.

Self-winding calibre LF230.02 incorporating the dual-time adjustment mechanism as well as the date. It features a system of unidirectional automatic winding via a pawl-fitted micro-rotor, backed by a double direct-impulse natural escapement. This escapement is distinguished by the fact that the balance receives two direct impulses for each oscillation, thereby guaranteeing excellent efficiency matched by an 72-hour power reserve.
