With this new collection, Laurent Ferrier recalls his very first creation as a watchmaker: the School Piece, or "Montre Ecole." It is an introduction into the world of watchmaking beyond mere assembly. The School Piece incorporated the 19th century pocket watches codes, the skills and techniques that traditionalists will never allow to disappear. In paying homage to his first watch, Laurent Ferrier’s objective is to develop a case with the same roundness above and below its wrist, as when those pioneering watchmakers converted pocket watches into wristwatches.
The result is the new 40mm three-piece bassiné case, its form enhanced by two satin bands, with a matte finish to contrast with the polished. Straight, thin lugs were developed to offer another contrast of the modern and the traditional, the "pastille" end-piece decoration mirrored by the winding crown.
