At Baselworld 2015 Laurent Ferrier released the Galet Square. Its unique cushion formed situation is dependent on the Laurent Ferrier’s first collection, the Galet (pebble). The Galet Square measures 41 by 41mm (45.35mm across) by 11.10 mm thick.

You will find three models: red-colored gold with chocolate dial and 11 red-colored gold applied drop-formed hour markers in red-colored gold, steel with blue blue-well developed dial with vertical satin-blown finish with 11 drop-formed hour-markers in white gold or platinum, and steel having a sunburst gold-well developed dial with three whitened drop-formed hour-markers in white gold or platinum.

Superbly finished Assegai-formed hands create a distinct statement in the heart of the dial, much like using the relaxation from the Galet models. Both your hands have been in 18K whitened or red-colored gold (with respect to the model).

The conclusion from the cases, the dials, both your hands, and also the movement is immaculate. The movement, for instance, includes a Cites de Genève motif around the bridges and also the circular graining around the main plate, the wheel spokes are beveled, the screw hands are chamfered and polished, the inside angles are hands-crafted.

Quality FBN229.01 is definitely an automatic having a unidirectional pawl-fitted micro-rotor. The 3Hz movement has 35 jewels, 186 total parts, along with a 72-hour energy reserve.

Based on the manufacturer, “This may be the third in-house movement developed, put together and modified within the Laurent Ferrier training courses. It’s outfitted with plastic escapement featuring double direct impulse around the balance. This innovation produced by Laurent Ferrier allows the total amount to become impelled two times per oscillation, a principle that needs two escape-wheels as well as a properly formed lever. This contemporary construction, combined by using cutting-edge materials, maximizes energy-efficiency, therefore ensuring higher amplitude from the balance. This reduces the quantity of mechanical pressure needed to wind the mainspring and therefore maximizes winding.”
