  • Catalogue Essay

    A paradigm of understatement, at first glance the present timepiece would appear as a simple time-only wristwatch. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The deceptively simple - and elegant beyond measure - case houses a masterpiece of engineering: the double spiral tourbillon. As the name suggests, not one but two hairsprings beat in unison at the heart of this masterpiece, each anchored in opposition to the other. This setting – simply devilish to realize – has the benefit of evening out the slight unbalance that derives from a single hairspring with a single anchor point. A magnifying lens fitted into the glazed back allows beholding such an outstanding setting, and one of only three made with this back.

    The dial as well is a remarkable exercise in formal perfection and technical prowess. Absolutely clean, with elongated Roman numerals and just a hint of color in the subsidiary seconds, it is realized with the
    “Gran Feu enamel” technique. Because the subsidiary second dial is recessed, but it is technically impossible to create a recess in a "Gran Feu" enamel dial, it is composed of two pieces: the main dial features a hole into which the subsidiary seconds subdial, created separately, is fitted.

    Delivered with all of its original accessories, the present piece was furthermore service by the maker in August 2017, and will be under guarantee until August 2022.

  • 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.
