Laurent Ferrier Classic Origin for Revolution & The Rake

  • Product Notes



    Having witnessed the beauty of Aurel Bacs’ sector dial Laurent Ferrier, we worked with the Swiss watch manufacturer to create our special edition in the same spirit but with different details.

    While Bacs' watch featured a micro-rotor movement, when given an opportunity to create something on the Classic Origin hand-wound platform, we simply requested that Ferrier create a watch in the spirit of the former but without replicating it. The resulting design by Ferrier and Amandine Perrier was something that we could only describe as ravishing.

    It features a two-tone dial with a cream center, surrounded by a printed sector track and Arabic markers. The dial is silver outside the central area, receives circular brushing under the indexes and is opaline under the minute track’s chemin de fer. Seconds are at six o’clock with a full seconds track and four enlarged markers at the compass points. The hands are Ferrier’s signature Assegai models that have been flame-blued and to us contrast perfectly with the cream of the dial.

    While we had the choice of titanium or steel, we selected steel. Because first, we found this more appropriate for a scientific-style watch and second, because we wanted to mount the watch on a steel “beads of rice” bracelet with straight end-links — this is our preferred way of wearing the watch. This bracelet was directly inspired by Auro Montanari and his wearing of his own Laurent Ferrier Micro-Rotor Aurel Bacs scientific model on a vintage steel Gay Frères “beads of rice” style bracelet. A second Alcantara strap with Beige lining fitted with Laurent Ferrier pin buckle is, also included.

    But that’s not all because we’ve also sourced a second set of blued steel LumiNova-filled hands which are included with our Laurent Ferrier Classic Origin Revolution & The Rake edition. We’ve always loved it when vintage scientific dial watches were ordered with radium hands and as a tribute to this, you now have a choice as to which set of hands you would like fitted to your watch. As we will be offering this watch by preorder, please note to specify if you would prefer the luminous hands or the normal Assegai hands fitted, and we will include the second pair in your watch box.

    The Laurent Ferrier Classic Origin for Revolution & The Rake will be made in 12 numbered examples.
