Laurent Ferrier Galet Classic Tourbillon Watch Only Watch 2013

Laurent Ferrier (the brand named after the man who spent 37 years at Patek before presenting the first watch under his own name at Baselworld 2010) presents a very tasteful unique piece for Only Watch 2013.  In keeping with the Only Watch spirit, Laurent Ferrier again has chosen to offer the very first movement of the second version of its famous Tourbillon Double Spiral (double balance-spring tourbillon).  It is duly numbered calibre “000” and housed inside a steel case shaped like a pebble (hence the French name galet), framing a unique sand-toned grand feu enamelled dial displaying a graceful dove.  The Monaco coat-of-arms is painted in tone-on-tone shades on the small seconds display.

The “assegai-shaped” gold hour and minute hands and the baton-shaped seconds hand lend the perfect finishing touch.

The caliber is breathtakingly gorgeous in both its design and its finishing:
