LAURENT FERRIER presents two new versions of its Micro-Rotor model: the Square Micro-Rotor Evergreen and the Classic Micro-Rotor Evergreen.
The first model boasts a cushion-shaped Square stainless steel case combined with a delicate deep green dial, with a vertical satin-brushed finish.
The second features the same green dial with its refined finishes, nestled in an 18-carat gold Classic round case. Optimal legibility is guaranteed by the indices, in 18-carat white gold and red gold respectively. The LAURENT FERRIER signature can be found in the tapered profile of both cases.
The Classic case is round, made out of 18-carat red gold with a diameter of 40mm. Endowed with LAURENT FERRIER’S refined aesthetic codes, this model takes inspiration from the elegant, understated pocket watches of the 19th century.
Another of Maison’s icons is the Square case, measuring 41mm x 41mm, which provides a more assertive presence on the wrist compared to the Classic model. With its aerodynamic curves, symmetry and elaborate lines, it exudes sophistication.
Both cases feature a ball-shaped winding crown, allowing for smooth handling. The hooked case back with sapphire crystal allows the wearer to admire the movement in all its beauty.
Ingeniously, only the LF watchmakers are able to access the calibre via the olivette, located at the bottom of the back bezel. Both the Square and the Classic cases are water resistant up to 30 metres.
Each timepiece houses the FBN 229.01 calibre with the innovative natural escapement. Equipped with a unidirectional ratchet-type micro-rotor, this self-winding movement boasts a three-day power reserve.
This exclusive LAURENT FERRIER movement was designed, assembled and adjusted in the LF workshops. It comes with a silicon escapement with a double direct impulse to the balance wheel: an innovation that allows the balance to be restarted twice per oscillation, requiring two escapement wheels and a pallet-lever with adjusted geometry.
The combination of this modern composition with the use of cutting-edge materials maximises energy efficiency. In turn, this escapement’s excellent efficiency ensures a high amplitude balance wheel. Since less mechanical force is needed for winding the barrel spring, the movement’s winding mechanism is optimised.
