Laurent Ferrier announces new piece to increase legibility

Laurent Ferrier is set to the Galet Square Régulateur, which separates the hours and minutes in order to give better readability.

The Regulateur comes in a 5N red gold square case with an opaline black nickel dial and a colour combination of red and black, a scheme that is a signature of the Swiss-based brand.

The idea with a regulator is to separate the hours and minutes for increased legibility and precision.

Regulator clocks were traditionally used by watchmakers to set their watches and by scientists for taking important measurements.

The movement is the LF Calibre 228.01, with automatic winding courtesy of a pawl-fitted micro-rotor, delivering a 72-hour power reserve.

The 41mm red gold case is water resistant to 30m and is fitted with sapphire crystals front and back.

Alongside the Côtes-de-Genève motif on the bridges and the circular graining on the mainplate, the wheel spokes are bevelled, the screw heads are chamfered and polished, and the interior angles are hand-crafted.

The Galet Square Régulateur Black will be available from Laurent Ferrier agents in August.
