Unveiled in 2010, the Galet, which is inspired from the pebble shape, is Laurent Ferrier’s first collection. Five years later, polished by time and shaped by experience, the ‘pebble’ is being reinterpreted. At Baselworld 2015, Laurent Ferrier unveiled its new model: the Galet Square.
Its evolution has been gentle and gradual, like the curves of minerals polished by the waves. The pebble, stemming from centuries of the incessantly repeated work of nature, embodies the purest expression of gentle shapes. For Laurent Ferrier, the Galet is the perfect integration of all parts of a case, as if one were holding a pebble in one’s hand. The whole challenge lay in preserving the spirit of the Galet, and of interpreting this new shape into the initial project without making a break with the past.
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.
A second version has a blue dial featuring a vertical satin-brushed finish that is a favourite with Laurent Ferrier and creates a velvety sheen that is particularly pleasing to the eye. This variation features 11 white gold hour-markers.
