For the sixth consecutive year LAURENT FERRIER has joined forces with the Organisers of the Only Watch charity auction to support for research against Duchene muscular dystrophy. The 9th edition of this biannual event will be organised on 06th November in 2021.
For the Only Watch 2021 event, LAURENT FERRIER has created a unique timepiece, which highlights the theme of hope. The Classic Origin Hope Only Watch 2021 Unique Piece features a manual 3-hand movement, the latest calibre addition to the LAURENT FERRIER collection. The brand’s iconic case, with its rounded shape, is available in stainless steel, for the first time on the Classic Origin.
This exclusive creation boasts a unique green aquamarine dial with 18-carat white gold drop shaped hour markers. This soft and refreshing colour is intended to represent youth, renewal, and optimism. Furthermore, a silvery-white opaline small seconds dial is placed at 6 o’clock.
By using white, LAURENT FERRIER also wanted to honour the resilience of the entire medical profession after what has been a troubled year. In addition, the emblematic “ball” shaped crown of the LF House remains.
The hand-wound LF116.01 calibre, visible via the exhibition case-back, is refined to the highest order. The movement is equipped with a free-sprung balance and a Breguet overcoil. This latter combination enhances precision, mitigates positional errors, and improves isochronism.
The emblematic long-blade ratchet system of this movement offers a very pleasant feeling when the watch is wound as well as an inimitable sound, characteristic of the most demanding timepieces. The movement provides 80 hours of power reserve when it fully-wound.
While the LF116.01 calibre is simpler than some of the company’s complicated movements, it still encompasses the high-end finishing found on every other LAURENT FERRIER creation. The bridges are decorated with a soft micro-blasted, black rhodium finish and hand-polished edges. Each screw head is mirror-polished and the escapement bridge is gracefully adorned with a hand-made interior angle.
The Classic Origin Hope Only Watch 2021 timepiece is fitted on an Alligator leather strap, lined with Alcantara and paired with a stainless-steel pin buckle.
The future owner of the Classic Origin Hope will get a complete visit to the LF workshops.
