A SHOT OF GREEN SWEETNESS
As sublime as it is exclusive, the latest creation from the Geneva-based watchmaker instantly seduces with the gentle freshness of its dial and its famous pebble-shaped case.
While the summer season unofficially took hold a few weeks ago, encroaching on a good part of the spring, Laurent Ferrier invites us to fly to other destinations in search of freshness. The Classic Traveller “Série Atelier” Magnetic Green, his new watch limited to 15 pieces and only available on his website, evokes the green softness of a mountain lake bordered by a forest of conifers.
Faithful to the codes of the Geneva-based brand – a strong aesthetic signature and impeccable mechanics – this timepiece is part of the very exclusive Série Atelier initiated in 2020. It features a sage green face, delicately satin-finished with a sunburst finish that merges in a circular pattern towards the hour circle. The latter is composed of drop-shaped hour markers, white gold appliques that seem to plunge towards this watermint immensity. Two windows on either side of the dial, respectively punctuated by a grey gold nail, display the date (at 3 o’clock) and the home time (at 9 o’clock), while the center is occupied by two assegai-style hands to indicate the local time. The local time is set by the fluted crown, while the reference time is controlled by the two pushers on the left side of the 41mm case made of grade 5 titanium. A small second at 6 o’clock completes the time data.
These indispensable displays come to life under the impetus of the LF 230.02 caliber, a 3hz automatic movement equipped with a solid gold micro-rotor and delivering a comfortable three-day power reserve. The watch is worn on a velvety touch bracelet in emerald green Nubuck lined with Alcantara, with a titanium pin buckle.
