Hi Jason, you’re certainly ahead of me having tried on the watch and seen it in the metal. I have got plenty of these sport SS watches

I have all four of the ones you mentioned above along with the open worked double balancier AP. So just for comparison sake let’s compare to the AP, in my opinion the Laurette Ferrier does not even come close to the AP, its retail price was in the mid-40,000s and it’s a double balancier! I know we’re not supposed to talk about prices on this website but honestly do you think the LF will ever be worth more and is it anywhere near the Watch that the AP is? Each to their own, at this point in my collecting career I want things that are special and will get more special as time goes on that I focus on that. I think Roger Smith, Kari etc.…Jim

Any opinions on the Laurent Ferrier stainless steel below?

Nice watch but at $49K+ tax it is pricey, and it’s not limited. The sales guy at Cellini made it sound like this was the hottest thing on the market but they will make 125 per year, sounds like there will be plenty around and no reason to rush. Picture of...

It’s a great brand but these are much nicer IMO. Saw it at W&W and while better than in pictures it think these two are some of the nicest designs from LF and a much nicer than the bracelet piece.
Thank you so much,Jim.

Likewise my friend. It’s a real pleasure to have you onboard. Hope we meet one day.

LF is not a sport style brand.
For me personally, I don't care

for watches with integrated bracelets. So I would pass on this one, but that is just me.
Not seen the piece in the flesh

but loving it in pics. 2 year + wait list at the moment. Will post pics when mine arrives next year.
Thanks for the response Jim.

I heard about approximately 100 total production from two ADs which are close to LF. For a company which makes 150 watches a year, making 125 of one model per year is simply not feasible even if they expanded production slightly (doubtful given labor shor...
yes the movement is spectacular IWC,

I was offered one of the first ones out but declined, it’s not a bargain and so many on the Independant market that are so good at 30% of the price…Jim
I find the Laurent Ferrier Sport Auto a fantastic watch
By: Geo : May 19th, 2022-19:07
At 'Watches & Wonders 'I had the chance to try it on and play with the watch and I find it very attractive. The titanium case and bracelet feel so comfortable on the wrist and I loved the little weight. It is unfair to compare the Laurent Ferrier Spor...

There was a post here on the WPS about this specific watch, and in my opinion I was very unimpressed with the watch design they literally copied PP with a bit of twist which is almost like the bell and ross. If your not going for the AP or PP I would go f...

Tries too hard…….
By: guycord : May 20th, 2022-08:17
Nice watch but tries too hard to join the integrated bracelet crowd. LF make lovely watches on non-metal straps/bracelets and should continue to grow organically as they are.
Exactly guycord, this is a quality watch no doubt
By: GreatPilot@me.com : May 21st, 2022-16:53
And some will go for it but when I was offered one I passed, I have the LF dual time cloisonné enamel dial and love it, very special and rare. I need another integrated bracelet like this like I need another hole on my head … Jim
Great point about the newness of the LF
By: GreatPilot@me.com : June 22nd, 2022-10:59
Great point about the newness of the LF compared to a 50-year-old design. Congratulations on a beautiful watch where it in good health… Jim
I‘m a huge LF fan, but go
By: mrds : June 24th, 2022-00:09
for a Galet or an Origin. For sports watches, there‘s many great options but LF doesn’t speak to me here.
