Founded in 2008 Laurent Ferrier took the watchmaking world by storm with the introduction of a tourbillon escapement with two balance springs mounted at 180°, in quick succession the brand was awarded one of the most prestigious awards in watchmaking (Grand Prix GPHG for the Best Men’s Watch circa 2010) for the Galet Classic Tourbillon. Laurent Ferrier spent about 40 years honing his craft at Patek Philippe before founding his eponymous brand. 

This stainless steel Galet Traveller Boréal was originally released in 2016. This iteration of the Galet Traveller featured a first-time stainless steel case along with a vibrant Superluminova dial making this example relatively more affordable at the time. The sector dial is inspired from the 1930s and the complication may have been inspired by the Patek Philippe’s circa 1950. The window found at 9 o’clock displays the ‘home’ time zone the pushers found at 7 and 10 o’clock allow for the hour hand to be set relatively quickly and efficiently. The traditional hour and minute hand are usually set to the current time zone wherever that may be. The window at 3 o’clock is used for the date. 

The dial would best be described as a contemporary slate grey sector inspired dial. The dial features intricate details that might go unnoticed. For starters the discs which display both the home time and date are finely frosted and shimmery, the numerals are then applied to the wheels. The periphery of the dial features discrete minute markers as well as hour markers. The circular track features Superluminova, in a similar fashion the polished hour and minute hands also feature matching Superluminova. The sunken sub-dial found at 6 o’clock is used for the seconds. At 12 o’clock the dial is signed Laurent Ferrier – Geneva and at 6 o’clock Swiss. 

This 41mm Galet Traveller Boréal houses the venerable self-winding Calibre LF230.01. Like several Laurent Ferrier calibres, this calibre has a micro-rotor with and a double direct-impulse natural escapement. Laurent Ferrier is also known for its use of silicon which is used in this movement for the pallet-lever due to its lightness and its self-lubricating properties. The movement’s finishing includes traditional côtes de Genève, circular graining on the main plate, manually chamfered angles and polished screw heads.
