Laurent Ferrier Grand Sport Tourbillon Golden Brown

To mark its 12th anniversary, the Geneva based haute-horlogerie brand LAURENT FERRIER is presenting a new golden brown dial version of its Grand Sport Tourbillon.

Initially released in 2019, the LAURENT FERRIER Grand Sport Tourbillon was inspired by the two founders’ shared love of motor racing. Designed after a beautifully sleek car body, its case combines clean lines and generous curves with a high-performance engine: the LF619.01 tourbillon calibre with double balance spring.

This new version of the Grand Sport Tourbillon presents an integrated case and bracelet made entirely of 5N red gold, as well as a magnificent dial in graduated shades of chocolate brown. The warm hues of red gold draw a sublime contrast with the enchanting chocolate-coloured dial.

As with all LAURENT FERRIER creations, the beauty of this exceptional timepiece resides in the smallest of details, where each element has been meticulously crafted to perfection.

The graduated dial presents a range of luxurious and delectable chocolate tones, moving from lighter in the centre to darker at the edges. Featuring 5N red-gold appliques and white Super-LumiNova, the dial has an opaline finish that gives the piece a soft and discreet appearance characteristic of the brand’s creations.

As on previous versions as well as on the latest Sport Auto, the famous drop-shaped hour-markers as well as the Assegai-shaped hands – a LF signature – both in 5N red gold in this instance, have been enlarged to accommodate the white Super-LumiNova. The dial is protected by a domed sapphire crystal, which gives the whole timepiece a rounded appearance when viewed from the side.

The structure of the Grand Sport case evokes the elegant, timeless curves of racing cars similar to those that Laurent used to drive. Crafted from 5N red gold, the Grand Sport Tourbillon Golden Brown seeks to be more sophisticated and elegant than other more traditional sport-chic timepieces.

The Grand Sport Tourbillon Golden Brown weighs approximately 310 grammes and measures 44 mm in diameter, asserting a strong presence on the wrist. The unique design of its three-link 5N red-gold bracelet ensures a comfortable and secure fit.

The case of the Grand Sport Tourbillon consists mainly of satin-brushed components along with numerous mirror-polished parts. The cushion-shaped bezel with a circular satin-brushed finish features contrasting mirror-polished sides.

Similarly, the middle-case, offering a new interpretation of the barrel shape, also plays with several finishes: vertical satin-brushed on the top, with a horizontal satin-brushed profile and contrasting mirror-polished sides. In line with the entire LAURENT FERRIER collection, the case components all come together seamlessly.

The bracelet is made up of three-link rows with a vertical satin-brushed finish, while the central links are bevelled with contrasting mirror polish. It is these details that give the bracelet-case pairing its vibrant appeal.

In 2010, LAURENT FERRIER won the Men’s Watch prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) for its Classic Tourbillon.

This watch was equipped with an ingenious manually wound movement complete with a tourbillon and a double balance spring. The new Grand Sport Tourbillon is driven by this exact same movement, although it has been given a more contemporary finish.

The carriage holding this double-balance-spring tourbillon is visible through the sapphire crystal case back. By equipping the balance with two reverse-assembled balance springs, the lateral displacement of the balance’s axis is neutralised. Integrating these two systems combines their respective advantages for excellent accuracy and a power reserve of over 80 hours.

The movement incorporates a long-blade ratchet system, which, in addition to its aesthetic value with its hand-worked curves, emits a gentle, reassuring sound when the watch is wound. LAURENT FERRIER has embellished the movement with a horizontal satin-brushed finish and ruthenium treatment, which reinforce the sporty style of this timepiece.

The tourbillon carriage bridge has been meticulously decorated by hand. The movement is also mirror-polished and has 30 hand-worked interior angles.

The highly exclusive Grand Sport Tourbillon Golden Brown is issued in a limited edition of just 24 timepieces.
