Galet is the name of the first collection from the Laurent Ferrier Manufacture, unveiled in 2010. Six years later, on the occasion of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2016, Laurent Ferrier presented its new model: the Galet Square Boréal.
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, magnifies the softness and purity of shapes. For Laurent Ferrier, the Galet embodies the perfect integration of all case components, as if one were holding a pebble in one’s hand.
For this new model, Laurent Ferrier, revisits an Art Deco aesthetic while giving it a contemporary twist. This timepiece is intended to be resolutely original while complying with the brand’s signature design codes.
The pure aesthetic codes of the Maison have been maintained, but in this 41 x 41 mm size, the model is more powerfully present on the wrist than its predecessors. Fitted with a ball-shaped winding-crown ensuring pleasing handling, the back is equipped with a snap-on back ensuring that the movement remains easily accessible to watchmakers via the olivette.
The finishes reflect the high standards Laurent Ferrier imposes on all its creations. All are performed in keeping with the finest watchmaking traditions. Alongside the Côtes de Genève motif on the bridges and the circular graining on the mainplate, the wheel spokes are bevelled, the screw heads are chamfered and polished and the interior angles are hand-crafted. The sapphire crystal case-back provides a fascinating glimpse of this fine workmanship and reveals an attractively balanced structure stemming from a clever combination of lines and curves.
Laurent Ferrier reinvents the graphic composition of the Galet Square dial while preserving the distinctive aesthetic codes of its collection. For this new variation, this so-called “sector-type” dial typical of the late 1930s attractively combines a vintage touch with a highly contemporary appearance.
