The 48 baguette-cut diamonds (3 carats) that brighten the new Galet Classic Tourbilllon Double Spiral have been set according to a demanding technique representing a unique skill. Invisible setting is indeed extremely complex, with the diamonds mysteriously held in place as if by magic, thereby ensuring perfect harmony around the bezel. Moreover, the stones are arranged in such a way that they appeal to be moulded to the sapphire crystal.
The manual-winding Tourbillon Double Spiral calibre is an exclusive Laurent Ferrier movement distinguished by its concept two head-to-tail mounted balance-springs. This device serves to compensate for the effects of gravity by maintaining the centre of gravity of the balance aligned with its axis. This movement with its timeless style is inspired by the great 19th and 20th century chronometry models. It features several nods to the competition watches that used to be testaments to the skills of the greatest watchmaking artisans, including a winding system with a very soft, pleasing design that does without the modern spring for the winding-stem pull-out piece lever.
The horological aesthetic also features a “long-blade” ratchet pawl and a smooth-polished finish. This movement is designed to be both accurate and robust. It has been carefully developed right down to the smallest details in order to find its way through time and successive generations, while testifying to an expertise going back more than 200 years.
The Galet Classic Tourbilllon Double Spiral set with diamonds comes in a 41mm case in 18-carat white gold and a black onyx dial. Beating at 21,600 vibrations/hour, the watch has a 80 hours power reserve. The timepiece is equipped with a hand-sewn black alligator leather strap.
