Contemporary Color Codes at Laurent Ferrier

A new ivory-dialed version of Laurent Ferrier’s Galet Classic ($160,000) tourbillon represents not just a new color scheme, but an additional opportunity to buy what has become a sought-after model for purist-minded watch collectors. The three-year-old debut model for the small brand has become known for its crisp and clean detailing as well as for its excellent precision, thanks to a tourbillon cage fitted with a double hairspring. This model in rose gold with black and red painted markers and counters over a grand feu enamel dial is perhaps the most contemporary-looking model, which may guarantee that its limited numbers will disappear quickly.
