Laurent Ferrier Galet Secret Tourbillon Double Spiral
Laurent Ferrier has become a notable name in watchmaking and this happened quick. His first watch, the Galet Classic Tourbillon Double Spiral, won an esteemed cost and now he as of now presents his second timepiece.
Laurent Ferrier’s first watch, the Galet Classic Tourbillon Double Spiral , resembles a moment exemplary. The jury of the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie Genève likely idea the equivalent and granted it best men’s watch. Shortly after this great beginning Laurent Ferrier presents another excellent watch, the Galet Secret Tourbillon Double Spiral.
I had the delight of meeting Laurent Ferrier and Olivier Müller during the Geneva Time Exhibition (GTE), which occurred during the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie. They showed me the honor winning Galet Classic Tourbillon Double Spiral and the new Galet Secret Tourbillon Double Spiral.
Inside ticks type Tourbillon Double Spiral FBN 916.02 manual winding mechanical development with a 80 hours power save. This type is, similar to type FBN 916.01 of the Galet Classic Tourbillon Double Spiral, fitted with an escapement highlighting two inversed balance springs to average out the negative impact of earth gravity by keeping the equilibrium community on its axis.
With the dial shut it would seem that a ‘normal’ watch (obviously I mean: an ordinary yet incredibly, lovely watch).
The Galet Secret has a dial that can open to uncover its secret… an individual small paining. The 240° dial opening is made conceivable by by two hazy shading sapphire gems that turn on a pivot. Simply squeezing the press button on the crown promptly changes the dial into an interesting piece of art.
Besides this ‘on demand’ opening of the dial, the Galet Secret has another likelihood to uncover its secret dial. The proprietor can by and by characterize an exact opportunity to open and close the dial. The customized opening of the dial is placed moving by a minuscule cam, with a one of a kind individual profile. It empowers the development to switch over the showcase inside one hour.
A smaller than usual composition like this is unbelievably troublesome and an apparently unimportant blunder in warming or cooling (of the polish dial) may cause staining, cracking, or foaming and the whole workmanship piece is destroyed. In a second, innumerable long periods of minutely definite work can be destroyed.
Not more than 2 or 3 of the Galet Secret Tourbillon will be made each year and in all out it will be restricted to just 20 pieces. Cost will be around 270,000 CHF (excl. charges) yet the genuine cost relies upon the origination of the hand painted polish dial.
The development is hand wound and offers 80 hours of force hold, which is around 3 days running time without winding. Laurent Ferrier’s decision of being unpretentious and watchful, is delineated by the secret lacquer dial and the lovely development with tourbillon which is just noticeable through the sapphire case back.
