Sold under the margin scheme. Learn more

This white gold Laurent Ferrier Galet Classic Tourbillon Double Spiral* is a quintessential execution of the watchmaker's classic, pared-back aesthetic. With its white enamel dial balanced with slender black Roman numerals, it is discrete and understated, while housing an impressive complication. At 39 mm, it is slightly smaller than the typical examples from this series, which are sized at 41mm. Exceptionally, the watch was also chronometer certified by the Besançon Observatory.


Laurent Ferrier: “I had been racing in Le Mans with my friend François Sérvanin between 1974 and 1981, and in 1979 we managed to get third place. After this race, François had expressed an interest in Patek Philippe, suggesting that he had heard it was a great brand, so I gifted him a Nautilus with the case-back engraved with 24hr Le Mans, 1979. We had spoken over a very many years about starting a business together, and as François was retiring, he had the money to invest, so we went for it. As he wasn’t a collector or connoisseur, he gave me carte blanche in terms of the approach and design. It was of absolute importance, in my mind, that we develop a calibre from scratch, so myself and my son Christian, set about making that happen.”
