Review: Laurent Ferrier – Galet Micro Rotor

Given Laurent Ferrier’s past as Patek Philippe’s ex-master watchmaker, one ought to expect nothing less than supremely elegant tickers.

Shorn of superfluous decorations, the Galet Micro Rotor exemplifies Ferrier’s less-is-more watchmaking philosophy, evinced in the fluid round case and minimalist dial, which while pared-down, are imbued with fine finishing details. The automatic movement inside is just as impressive, fitted with the namesake rotor that helps generate up to 80 hours of power reserve, and a silicon escapement with direct impulse for greater precision.
