 wish finally came true in 2009, when he was joined by his son Christian and his friend François Servanin. Having studied micromechanics, Christian Ferrier gained increasingly important experience in the field of new technologies, and mastered the art of watchmaking under the manufacturer Roger Dubuis and later at the”La Fabrique du Temps” workshop, thus complementing his father’s extensive know-how. BaselWorld 2010 was the stage for the presentation of an extraordinary model that inaugurated the name Laurent Ferrier Genéve. With the help of master watch ma - kers Michel Navas and Enrico Barbasini from “La Fabrique du Temps”, the project finally took shape with a tourbillon fitted with a double balance spiral. With his help and knowledge, the creation of the Galet Classic Tourbillon Double Spiral uses the most advanced techniques in the conception of its different components, but with an ingrained respect for the codes of traditional haute horlogerie.


Although directly inspired on the famous competition chronometers and with a discreet appearance with an emphasis on quality and precision, Laurent Ferrier hasn’t been able to hide the influence of a lifetime at Patek Philippe.

With the Galet Classic Tourbillon Double Spiral, which won the prize for best men’s watch at the 2010 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, Laurent Ferrier has created a reality beyond Patek Philippe. It’s impossible to stay indifferent to the age-old tradition represented by this creation’s tourbillon cage, accompanied by the bridges and platinum decorated with the traditional Côtes de Genève pattern.

Um desejo que em 2009 se transforma numa realidade palpável, e no qual é acompanhado pelo seu filho Christian e pelo companheiro de aventuras François Servanin. Formado em micro mecânica, Christian Ferrier acumula uma experiência cada vez mais incontornável no campo das novas tecnologias e passa a dominar a relojoaria sob os auspícios da manufactura Roger Dubuis e posteriormente nos ateliers da “La Fabrique du Temps”, complementando assim o vasto conhe - cimento do pai. A feira de Basileia de 2010 torna-se o palco da


apresentação de um modelo extraordinário que inaugura o nome “Laurent Ferrier Genéve”! Com o apoio dos mestres relojoeiros Michel Navas e Enrico Barbasini da “La Fabrique du Temps”, o projecto assume finalmente uma forma física através de um movimento com escape de turbilhão e dupla espi- ral. Com o seu auxílio e conhecimentos, a criação do “Galet Classic Tourbillon Double Spiral” recorre às técnicas mais avançadas na concepção dos seus diversos componentes, mas sem negar em 
