FLIGHT OF FANCY LAU­RENT FER­RIER – GALET TRAV­ELLER

24-7 (Singapore) - - I For... Indie Treasures -

This is a no­ble and prac­ti­cal beauty from Lau­rent Fer­rier, the 67-year-old watch­maker who pre­vi­ously plied his trade with Patek Philippe be­fore start­ing his epony­mous brand in 2009. As hand­some as it is easy to use, the Galet Trav­eller shows the sec­ond time zone at nine o’clock, while the date is at three o’clock. Two push­ers at the side of the case can set the sec­ond time zone for­ward or back­wards in one-hour steps. The timepiece’s pared-down de­sign and ef­fort­less func­tion­al­ity, how­ever, be­lies its ar­du­ous con­struc­tion. It is pow­ered by Fer­rier’s sig­na­ture au­to­matic move­ment with a mi­cro ro­tor, which gen­er­ates a power re­serve of up to 80 hours, and is chronome­ter-cer­ti­fied by the Be­san­con Ob­ser­va­tory.
