Classic Origin Green
The acclaimed Maison LAURENT FERRIER, keep celebrating its 10th anniversary with the release of a new interpretation of the Classic Origin. Housed in the Classic, pebble-shaped case, this new version has a sporty influence thanks to the use of Grade 5 titanium. More modern, this latest creation upholds the company’s revered standards of craftsmanship and horological virtue.
A CONTEMPORARY REINTERPRETATION
The Classic Origin Green is specially designed for those individuals who value the brand’s signature crystal-clear elegance. Created to mark the 10th anniversary of the company, this model is housed in a 40mm Classic case and encompasses the same smooth curving lines as the inaugural model of the brand, the Classic Tourbillon double spiral. However, in this instance, the case is formed of Grade 5 titanium, imbuing the watch with a more modern temperament.
Consistent with the Genevan Maison's inclination for uncluttered aesthetics, the Classic Origin Green exhibits a minimalist refined beauty. 18-carat white gold Assegai-shaped hour and minute hands serenely float above a distinctive dial. This new timepiece features a gradient opaline dial that transitions from translucent green at its centre to deep green near its periphery. The slate grey dial's hour track is punctuated with sharp yellow numerals which give the whole piece a distinctly sporting spirit. A small seconds display with a sharp yellow outer circle, featuring a baton-shaped hand is located above 6 o’clock. All three hands are formed of 18-carat white gold.
As previously mentioned, the LAURENT FERRIER Classic case is constructed of Grade 5 titanium, the first time this lightweight alloy has been used by the company. Grade 5 titanium is widely used in both the medical field and the aviation industry because of its impressive array of benefits. It is strong, lightweight, corrosion-resistant and hypoallergenic. The watch is equipped with the Maison's iconic 'Ball-shaped' crown. Beyond its graceful appearance, the scale and shape of the crown facilitate ease of adjustment.
A BRAND NEW CALIBRE
The hand-wound Calibre LF 116.01, visible via the exhibition case back, is refined to the highest order. The movement is equipped with a free-sprung balance and a Breguet overcoil. This latter combination enhances precision, mitigates positional errors and improves isochronism. The firm's beloved long-blade ratchet system is another highlight of this movement. This system, emblematic of LAURENT FERRIER, offers a very pleasant feeling when the watch is wound as well as an inimitable sound, characteristic of the most demanding timepieces. Assuming the Classic Origin is fully wound, it will run autonomously for 80 hours, courtesy of its admirable power reserve.
While the Calibre LF 116.01 is simpler than some of the company's complicated movements, it still encompasses the high-end finishing found on every other LAURENT FERRIER creation. The bridges are decorated with a softly spoken micro-blasted, black rhodium finish and hand-polished edges. Each screwhead is mirror polished and the escapement bridge is gracefully adorned with a hand-made interior angle, consistent with the Maison's fastidious attention to detail.
A Honey Timberland leather strap, lined with Alcantara is paired with a titanium pin buckle, highlights the Classic Origin Green. This candid combination provides a tasteful accompaniment to this timepiece.
This latest addition to the LAURENT FERRIER collection, the Classic Origin Green, celebrates once again the company’s 10-year journey while upholding the Maison’s esteemed standards of craftsmanship, timeless styling and exalted watchmaking.
