Meissen Collaborates with Laurent Ferrier on Artistic Watches

  • Laurent Ferrier’s Galet Secret

The Geneva-based boutique watchmaker Laurent Ferrier has established a long-term partnership with Meissen Italia, a subsidiary of the venerable German porcelain maker, to create limited-edition timepieces. Meissen’s first watch collaboration, with the German maker Glashütte, illustrated how high-quality porcelain can be used to create dials of exceptional visual depth, and that tradition continues with Laurent Ferrier. The first two watches feature Meissen’s hand-painted porcelain dials hidden under the moveable sapphire crystals of Laurent Ferrier’s Galet Secret model. A full collection of timepieces will be unveiled in the next few months. (+41.22.346.6406, www.laurentferrier.ch)
