  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2018, Laurent Ferrier introduced the Galet Annual Calendar Montre École, which won the Best Men’s Watch award at the GPHG. Featuring an in-house annual calendar mechanism, the Montre École displays the time, along with day, date and month, and only requires a manual setting once per year at the end of February. The date and month are easily changed through the crown, with the day advanced via a button in the band positioned at 10 o’clock. The 40mm diameter case with smooth rounded bezel and curved lugs allows for a large dial with a highly legible layout. The model was originally offered in stainless steel, rose gold, or yellow gold, and with a white or slate grey dial. The present stainless steel model, released in 2020, is fitted with an attractive blue dial.

    The tradition of montre école, or school watch, has a long history in horology and watchmaking. It is a watchmaking student’s final project, and brings together all the skills and techniques learned over the course of his or her education. It is in the end a unique watch celebrating its maker, and the beginning of their career. This tradition is important, and was not lost on Laurent Ferrier, therefore he chose to manufacture the case based on his own montre école.

    In absolutely new condition, and accompanied by the full-set of accessories, this is a wonderful opportunity to own a timepiece from one of the most influential independent watchmakers of today.

  • 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.
