GALET SQUARE

July 3, 2015
Les galets – Samivel
Adapted from the French poem “Pebbles” by Samivel
On a pebble beach,
tell me what you see?
Pebbles as far as the eye can reach,
All apparently very much alike,
yet a closer look shows
that some are round and others square,
golden, garnet, jade, multicoloured…
At Laurent Ferrier,
some are round and others square
… gold and steel

The Galet (pebble). Laurent Ferrier’s signature, is being reinterpreted. At Baselworld 2015, Laurent Ferrier unveils its new model: the Galet Square.Technically speaking, the original Galet has become a square leaning towards a cushion shape. Laurent Ferrier has devoted particular attention to the aesthetic harmony of the model. The flowing lines designed five years ago by Laurent Ferrier have been maintained and are now housed within a new case that reprises every subtle detail. The difficulty of the exercise lay in preserving this aesthetic signature while gently shifting it towards new lines. The Galet Square, measuring 41 x 41 mm, is intended to assert a bolder presence on the wrist than the models that inspired it.This is also the first time that Laurent Ferrier is introducing a steel case. The Galet Square, which is joining the brand’s regular collections, thereby opens up a whole new creative era for collections that had thus far been crafted only from rare and precious metals.LF_GALET-SQUARE_BLUE GALET SQUAREThe movement is still the self-winding FBN 229.01 calibre with unidirectional pawl-fitted micro-rotor and a three-day power reserve. This is the third in-house movement developed, assembled and adjusted in the Laurent Ferrier workshops. It is equipped with silicon escapement featuring double direct impulse on the balance.
