  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2021, The Laurent Ferrier Classic Origin is created to commemorate the 10th year anniversary of the company as an independent watchmaker. The 40mm classic case, constructed with Grade 5 titanium is smooth and light at touch. The signature white gold Assegai-shaped hands elongate and cover quite elegantly the silvery-white opaline dial and the 18K white gold hour indexes present at 12 o'clock. The slate grey painted minute track contrasts with the burgundy-colored numerals, firmly giving to the watch an elegant and sophisticated attire. The thin baton shaped seconds hand, located at 6 o'clock is perfectly centered on the dial and features an equally burgundy-colored scale within a stepped down sub dial.

    Turn the watch around, and through the open caseback you will realize the true potential the Classic Origin has to offer. Whilst the dial and Assagi-shaped hands give the watch a more subtle and classy look, Laurent Ferrier boldly chose to use Grade 5 titanium for their movement with micro blasted black rhodium finished bridges, shifting the "mood" of the watch to a very contemporary one. The timepiece is powered by the beautiful manual caliber LF116.01 with hours, minutes, and small seconds at 6 o'clock - the movement boasts a notable 80-hour power reserve.

    This Classic Origin from 2021 is in pristine condition and comes with its full set of accessories. Highly collectible and a tasteful celebration of excellence, the timepiece will certainly impress the esteemed standards of watch connoisseurs.

  • Artist Biography

    Laurent Ferrier

    Swiss • 2008

    Introducing its first watch to critical acclaim in 2010, Laurent Ferrier was founded by long-time Swiss watchmaker of the same name. Following a 37-year career at Patek Philippe, Ferrier founded the brand in 2008, creating timeless wristwatches inspired by the finest wrist and pocket watches from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Revered by collectors around the world for their genuine innovations and understated elegance, the brand specializes in exquisitely hand-finished movements featuring state-of-the-art watchmaking technology. Galet, or "pebble" in French, describes the signature feature of the brand's cases used across its collection — with soft curves, domed crystals and rounded edges reminding one of a smooth pebble.

    Key models include the Galet Classic Tourbillon Double Spiral and the Galet Micro-Rotor, with stunning movement architectures designed after prestigious observatory chronometer movements of the twentieth century.
