LAURENT FERRIER has always drawn its inspiration from the time-honoured traditions of Fine Watchmaking. These vintage influences, combined with the eponymous designer’s animist beliefs, make it possible to create watches that are much more than mere tools for telling the time but real multisensory experiences. Through two exclusive pieces, LAURENT FERRIER offers its contemporary vision of a legendary theme from the late 1930s. Unique and nostalgic, these Square Micro‑Rotor Rétro incorporate a real part of history.

    CALIBRE FBN229.01

    This automatic calibre features a natural escapement. It offers two exclusive characteristics: a micro-rotor pawl-fitted automatic winding system, assisted by an exclusive silicon double-direct impulse escapement fitted directly on the balance, inspired by the father of modern horology, Abraham-Louis Breguet. This modern construction, associated with the use of cutting-edge materials,
    maximises the restitution of energy.

    The exceptional finishes of the movement are crafted in the finest watchmaking traditions. In addition to a Côtes de Genève pattern on the bridges and the circular graining on the mainplate, the flanks are hand-drawn, the wheel spokes are bevelled, the screw heads are polished, and the interior angles of the balance-cock are hand crafted with a burin. The micro-rotor bridge is hand polished.
