A subtle blend of past memories and contemporary techniques, the Galet Micro-Rotor Opaline is an impressive compendium of horological innovations. Its self-winding movement with off-centered winding micro-rotor stems from an exclusive development inspired by Abraham-Louis Breguet’s natural escapement.
The Galet Micro-Rotor is an elegant and efficient timepiece, equipped with an exclusive in-house movement developed, assembled and adjusted in the Laurent Ferrier workshops.
The curve of the case reflects the brand’s pure, restrained design codes. It is pebble-shaped (galet in French) in a nod to the large and refined historical watch models. It is equipped with a ball-shaped winding-crown ensuring more pleasant handling. The excessively noisy ball-bearing system has been replaced by a more traditional horological mechanism with pawls.
The automatic winding movement, visible exclusively through the sapphire caseback is crafted in the finest traditional manner with a rating precision duly certified by Besançon Observatory.
As with all watches bearing the Laurent Ferrier signature, each detail of this version of the Galet Classic has been meticulously chosen and crafted with rigorous care.
In endowing the Galet Micro-Rotor with such attributes, Laurent Ferrier demonstrates its unconditional respect for classical fine watchmaking. Time should have no hold over this model that displays an authentic sense of detail.
