Reflecting the brand founders’ shared passion for motorsports, the Tourbillon Grand Sport watch by Laurent Ferrier is now available with an integrated stainless steel bracelet.
The Grand Sport Tourbillon has a 44mm stainless steel case, with circular satin-finished elements. The bezel is cushion-shaped but encompasses contrasting mirror-polished flanks. The middle of the case has a barrel-shaped outline, yet, consistent with other Laurent Ferrier timepieces. This timepiece has a water resistance of 100 meters.
For the first time, Laurent Ferrier has equipped a watch with an integrated stainless steel bracelet. The central row of the 3-rows design is comprised of vertical satin finished links. The rounded edges of the links have a contrasting mirror-polish. The case back with sapphire crystal glass is secured with bolts inspired by those used in the racing cars.
The watch features an opaline dial which transitions from blue at its centre to black near its periphery. Both the hands and indexes feature orange Super-LumiNova, vitalising the overall composition. A snailed small seconds display resides above 6 o’clock. The tourbillon complication is only visible via the sapphire case back.
The high-end manual-winding tourbillon movement features a long-blade-type ratchet pawl system, delivering a reassuring click as the watch is wound. The Maison has furnished the movement with a horizontal satin-brushed finish and a ruthenium treatment, reinforcing the sporty character of the watch. The tourbillon carriage bridge is painstakingly decorated by hand. Furthermore, the movement features mirror polishing and 30 hand-crafted interior angles.
The Laurent Ferrier Grand Sport Tourbillon with bracelet is limited to just 12 pieces.
