  • Catalogue Essay

    Laurent Ferrier offers a new composition of space on this exceptional dial, while respecting the aesthetic codes of its collection. The harmonious division between an outer circle with a circular satin-brushed finish and a central zone with a vertical satin-brushed finish lends the dial a unique variety of shades and textures. This association already introduced by Laurent Ferrier is given a new interpretation here. The space is marked out by a slender and delicately accentuated transferred circle featuring curved markers paying a distinctive nod to the brand’s iconic drop-shaped hour-markers.
    The small seconds echoes the central theme, thereby endowing this model with a perfect equilibrium entirely respectful of the pure lines and the principles of readability cherished by Laurent Ferrier. The singularity of the dial is reinforced by the “Only Watch 2015” inscription appearing in the spot traditionally reserved for the word “Swiss”, while the “assegai-shaped” gold hours and minutes along with the baton-type seconds hand set the perfect finishing touches. To highlight the unique nature of this model created specifically for Only Watch, Laurent Ferrier is revisiting its lugs for the first time and introducing a straight version of them enriched with gold half spheres.

  • 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.
