Grand Sport Tourbillon Golden Brown

This autumn, to mark the 12th anniversary of the LAURENT FERRIER brand, the team is proud to present a new interpretation of the Grand Sport Tourbillon.  Its case is designed like a beautifully sleek car body, combining clean lines and generous curves with a high-performance engine: the LF619.01 tourbillon calibre with double balance spring.  This new version of the Grand Sport Tourbillon presents an integrated case and bracelet made entirely of 5N red gold, as well as a sublime dial in graduated shades of chocolate brown.  

AN APPEALING COLOUR PALETTE

The graduated dial presents a range of luxurious and delectable chocolate tones, moving from lighter in the center to darker at the edges. Featuring 5N red-gold appliques and white Super-LumiNova, the dial has an opaline finish that gives the piece a soft and discreet appearance characteristic of the brand’s creations. As on previous versions as well as on the latest Sport Auto, the famous drop-shaped hour-markers as well as the Assegai-shaped hands – a LF signature – both in 5N red gold in this instance, have been enlarged to accommodate the white Super-LumiNova.

The bracelet is made up of three-link rows with a vertical satin-brushed finish, while the central links are beveled with contrasting mirror polish. It is these details that give the bracelet-case pairing its vibrant appeal.

A POWERFUL ENGINE

In 2010, LAURENT FERRIER won the Men’s Watch prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) for its Classic Tourbillon. This watch was equipped with an ingenious manually wound movement complete with a tourbillon and a double balance spring. The new Grand Sport Tourbillon is driven by this exact same movement, although it has been given a more contemporary finish.

Patented by Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1801, the tourbillon countered the adverse effects of gravity on the regulating organ of a pocket watch when it was held upright. By equipping the balance with two reverse-assembled balance springs, the lateral displacement of the balance’s axis is also neutralized. Integrating these two systems combines their respective advantages for excellent accuracy and a power reserve of over 80 hours.  Chronometry lovers will appreciate the accuracy and superior performance of this timepiece.

AN ODE TO PURE AND TRADITIONAL ELEGANCE

The movement incorporates a long-blade ratchet system, which, in addition to its aesthetic value with its hand-worked curves, emits a gentle, reassuring sound when the watch is wound. LAURENT FERRIER has embellished the movement with a horizontal satin-brushed finish and ruthenium treatment, which reinforce the sporty style of this timepiece. The tourbillon carriage bridge has been meticulously decorated by hand. The movement is also mirror-polished and has 30 hand-worked interior angles.
