A great visit at Laurent Ferrier

Vacation finally allow me the time to post these few pics taken at the occasion of a visit at Laurent Ferrier ateliers in Geneva in May this year, sorry for the delay ๐Ÿ˜‰. 

Laurent and Christian once again welcomed me at their ateliers and we had a great time 







Apart from the great in-house conception of all their calibres the finishing of the movement is simply amazing... Their micro rotor movement is the nicest one ever imho (sorry to be a bit partial)...



But one that drives me literally mad is the movement of the Grand Sport Tourbillon with this incredible ruthenium finishing , omg I wish it exists one day in another version I could get (I am dreaming)... this finishing looks gorgeous...



But letโ€™s go back to some finished watches, also the case and dials look great ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Traveller with enamel dial



And the latest Bridge One with its shaped movement, LFโ€™s favourite core expressions that remains deeply rooted in the horological tradition of the 19th century. The texture of this grey dial is very nice too...


But to be totally honest with you I personally remain faithful to the Galet case whether Square or Classic but ๐Ÿคซ Laurent wouldnโ€™t want me to say it ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Of course the one that is a dream to most of us is the Double Spiral Tourbillon, it requires almost no words as the photos speak for themselves 



Everything in this watch is a dream and the movement even more (sorry for the picture quality I cannot get it better when uploading)...



Thank you again Laurent and Christian for your hospitality.
Mike

I totally agree with you that Laurent Ferrier's micro rotor movement is the most beautiful ever made and I am impartial!!

Thanks for sharing these pics.

LF makes gorgeous watches. Like you, the Galet case remains my favorite of the group. LF has come out with some alluring dial colors and configurations over the years. I look forward to seeing what they release next. Cheers, John

thanks a ton Mike....

Actually each time I try my Galet Square I can confirm that it is the nicest case shape from LF but... however if I try my Galet Classic just after Iโ€™ll confirm that it is THE nicest (but the same process goes on if I put on the Galet Square again ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ). In... 

Very nice post, Mike!
