  • Catalogue Essay

    Synonymous with discreet and understated elegance, Laurent Ferrier’s Galet collection truly represent the brand’s horological values: simplicity, precision and pure uncluttered beauty. With only a few hundred pieces leaving Mr. Ferrier’s work benches per year, his timepieces are sought-after by collectors from all over the world. And for the London goers, William & Son, Mayfair-based sole retailer, would be their destination for the elusive brand.

    The present dual-time Galet Traveller in Night Blue designed exclusively for William & Son is of true rarity, produced in only 5 examples each in two metals: 18K pink gold and platinum. Adorned with blue enamel of the land and sea of the five continents, a red gold leaf highlights the position of the United Kingdom with subtlety. Powering this golden pebble is the caliber LF 230.1 with exquisite finishing and boasting a remarkable power reserve of 80 hours with a natural escapement. Integrated with perfect symmetry, two pushers allow the jetsetter to adjusts the local time in either direction (forward and backward) in one hour increments, an ingenious and practical function to behold. Offered in excellent condition, the present example is complete with its original certificate and accessories. A rare piece reflecting mechanical perfection and pure class and one not to miss for those who appreciates independent watchmaking.

  • 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.
