Just saw the nicest Laurent Ferrier I've seen in a long time! Introducing the Laurent Ferrier Classic Salon des Horlogers Limited Edition

All Laurent Ferrier pieces are exquisite, but this one is exceptional! I find this to be one of the nicest Laurent Ferrier pieces I've ever seen! Introducing the LAURENT FERRIER Classic Micro-Rotor - Salon des Horlogers Limited Edition of 25 pieces. Appar...

LF is the next Journe.

 By: Ivan5 : May 5th, 2022-20:47
The charm of his timepieces can be appreciated only in person. The pics never do them any justice. I'll be pulling a trigger on another piece very soon... ...  


 By: mdg : May 5th, 2022-21:07 most of their models aren't very complicated for one thing...


 By: Ivan5 : May 5th, 2022-21:27
However, you have LF dealing with Patek complications for a three decades plus...and this is a point in his evolution: Almost an austere simplicity joined with a sophistication which can't be replicated...

And who needs complications?

 By: patrick_y : May 5th, 2022-21:56
Complications are nice, but I can't remember the last time my perpetual calendars were all indicating the correct month, day, and date. Or if the complications were actually working. Half the time I put on a simple watch, the watch had stopped and I have ... 

I get it...but just because LF worked for PP, doesn't mean he can capture that magic...

 By: mdg : May 5th, 2022-22:15
...I prefer the LF aesthetic in most cases, but collectability-wise, they're not on the same planet as FPJ.

Sorry...referring to Ivan's original comment...

 By: mdg : May 5th, 2022-22:25
...about LF as the next Journe...

I was kidding. :)))

 By: amanico : May 6th, 2022-05:29

I sort of knew that...

 By: mdg : May 6th, 2022-15:12
...but because of the structure of this forum, sometimes it's difficult (for me at least) to determine who is replying to who : (


 By: amanico : May 6th, 2022-17:33

It's impossible to argue against that, Patrick.

 By: Ivan5 : May 7th, 2022-17:00
I think we all agree implicitly, this all insanity of collecting lands us within things peculiar and geeky as opposed to utilitarian and pragmatic..πŸ˜‰


 By: patrick_y : May 8th, 2022-18:29
Some people genuinely like complications. And are fascinated by them. I am fascinated too, but at the same time I can't deny the beauty of that clean dial layout. But yes, we're all a little specific about what we like! And that's great!

Ivan, You are totally on point.

 By: pptraveltime : May 5th, 2022-22:06
But that is probably will also be the reason why LF can’t get too popular. It will require a lot of watch collecting experience to understand this simplicity and sophistication.

Both on point

And slow growth has benefits and long-term stability. jmho

Beautiful watch for sure...

 By: mdg : May 5th, 2022-20:48
...but the price seems 'aggressive' for steel...


 By: patrick_y : May 5th, 2022-21:49
It is expensive. But then again, all Laurent Ferriers are priced highly.

Me too! Checks all the boxes!

 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : May 5th, 2022-23:07

Ahh! Someone who isn't confident with the dial.

 By: patrick_y : May 5th, 2022-21:52
Looking at the photos (I haven't seen the watch in person yet), I feel this is one of the nicest shades of blue dials on a watch from Laurent Ferrier in a long time! But of course, this two-shades of dark blue might not be appealing to everyone. And there... 

Here is a superb blue...

 By: amanico : May 5th, 2022-21:58

Ahh. Exquisite...

 By: patrick_y : May 5th, 2022-22:02
I like the lack of lume!

To be honest, I didn't even notice at first.

 By: patrick_y : May 5th, 2022-22:29
At first I was so captivated by the color.

Beautiful LF

Timeless beauty

You're welcome! Thank you for commenting!

 By: patrick_y : May 6th, 2022-17:30
LF watches don't always appeal to me. And I'm finding super complex looking dials don't always appeal to me neither. Most of the time, a perpetual calendar isn't set correctly anyways. I find that simple 2-3 hand watches are more my thing now! I don't eve... 

Laurent Ferrier knows how to make an appealing dial

If you're into natural escapements, this is the complete package.

Hmm. I'm not sure I know enough about his natural escapements...

 By: patrick_y : May 8th, 2022-19:09
But no doubt, this is one very special timepiece.
