LAURENT FERRIER – Galet Square
In his 1874 book, Le carnaval du dictionnaire, the French journalist, author and poet Pierre Véron (1831-1900) gave his own definition of the warm season: “Autumn. The sun’s post-scriptum”. Although the temperatures drop and the rain can be heavy, the sun continues to bathe (OK, maybe not as intensely) the earth with copper light and nature glows with an orange tint. The same autumnal spirit oozes from the flushed dial of the Galet Square. Its vertical satin-finish so dear to Laurent Ferrier showcases eleven white gold indices elongated like metallic teardrops and interspersed by an understated pearlescent minute track. Two spear-shape white gold hands burst from the coppery disc to track the hours and minutes whilst the seconds tick by in a counter at 6 o’ clock. The functions are brought to life by the self-winding FBN 229.01 calibre in the steel case. Price: 35,000 CHF exc. VAT. Sharmila Bertin
