Last month, we showed you a review of the Laurent Ferrier Galet Annual Calendar School Piece with new opaline dials clearly. You can peruse more about them here . Both are by and large officially dispatched today at SIHH 2019. Also, presently, we can at last inform you regarding a third piece that will go along with them; presenting the Galet Annual Calendar School Piece Blue.
As with the other two models we outlined for you, the new Galet Annual Calendar School Piece Blue is precisely indistinguishable from a year ago’s debut model . What separates it from its companions is, obviously, the new shading plan. Showing that even the outside the box brands aren’t invulnerable to patterns, this form flaunts a trendy blue galvanic dial with a glossy silk brushed finish.
Despite the implantation of shading, notwithstanding, this watch actually remains richly downplayed. This is because of Laurent Ferrier’s unbelievable exercise of self control. While outwardly the blue is very striking, the choice to limit the utilization of other tones on the dial implies it actually holds its exemplary appeal.
The “assegai-formed” hour and moment hands are created from 18K white gold and painted white, just like the cudgel type seconds hand with a stabilizer. Similarly as with the other models, be that as it may, the focal date hand is painted an unmistakable red. This focuses at vintage-motivated numerals painted in white (1-30) and in red (31) around the dial’s outskirts. Completing the calendar signs are slanted day and month gaps just under 12 o’clock.
The case gauges a comfortable 40mm x 10.1mm (barring the domed sapphire precious stone, which takes the thickness up to 12.8mm). It will be accessible in your decision of 18K red gold or tempered steel. Actually, I think the blue dial is more qualified to the coolness of steel yet I wouldn’t complain about having either form on my wrist.
Inside is the manual winding type LF126.01. As Brice recently referenced, this is an exclusive development and interestingly, Laurent Ferrier has selected to utilize a standard Swiss switch escapement rather than the immediate twofold drive found on the Galet Micro-Rotor. The complex annual calendar module more than compensates for this, be that as it may. The crown is utilized for winding the development, setting the time and changing the focal calendar hand and the months. A press button at 10 o ́clock considers simple change of the times of the week.
Completing this blue-dial magnificence is a coordinating blue croc leather tie with Alcantara lining. It’s shut with your decision of either a pin clasp or a twofold sharp edge collapsing clasp.
Not another watch as such from Laurent Ferrier however one that is no uncertainty bound to be high on the ‘need’ rundown of numerous authorities in 2019. Likewise with the opaline dial adaptations, cost will be set at CHF 50,000 in steel and CHF 55,000 in rose gold. More subtleties at laurentferrier.ch .
