Beauty from Within: Look Inside the Laurent Ferrier Galet Micro-Rotor Dress Watch

On first viewing of the elegant and sober lines of Laurent Ferrier’s Galet Micro-Rotor, one might be tempted to classify this timepiece as yet another rendition of the archetypal men’s dress watch.

The Galet Micro-Rotor ($47,450 for rose gold; $49,070 for white gold) features a timekeeping element governed by a unique escapement: a double impulse configuration inspired by the natural escapement that Abraham-Louis Breguet developed in the late 18th century. Take a look here at what lies beneath.
