Introducing The Laurent Ferrier Grand Sport Tourbillon (Now With An Extra Side Of Steel)
When it dispatched in May of a year ago, the Laurent Ferrier Grand Sport Tourbillon took the very much respected brand toward another path. Furnished with an extraordinary execution of a development from an honor winning watch, the first 12-piece run of the Grand Sport Tourbillon offered the lively sleeper on an elastic lash. Today, the brand has reported another 12 pieces, this time on a coordinating steel arm band and with another dial color.
Still 44mm wide in steel, the Grand Sport Tourbillon is separated by the new steel three-interface wristband and a dull blue slope dial. Those needing a look at the underlying model with its earthy colored inclination dial and beige elastic lash (alongside the story behind the watch) should look at Stephen’s unique post here . As I would prefer, the two updates are enormous moves: The watch looks so right on the arm band, and the dim blue of the dial is a solid counterpart for the punchy orange iridescent treatment on the markers and hands.
Like the primary form, the wristband clad Grand Sport Tourbillon rocks the brand’s LF 619.01, which is a similar development found in the Laurent Ferrier Classic Tourbillon (which won the “Best Men’s Watch Award” at the GPHG in 2010). Physically twisted and best appreciated by means of the Grand Sport Tourbillon’s showcase caseback, the LF 619.01 highlights a tourbillon and a twofold equilibrium spring, alongside a unique dull ruthenium finish for this energetic application. The degree of completing is imperative, and the outcome is the perfection of an extraordinary measure of handcraft and consideration (truly, investigate the photograph below).
Priced from CHF 172,000 (~$178,000), the Grand Sport Tourbillon, similar to everything from Laurent Ferrier, is an uncommon contribution of an exceptionally high request. The really restricted creation, the superior development, and the incredibly definite hand-completing all combine to make the Grand Sport Tourbillon a watch worth conveying the Laurent Ferrier name, yet in the sportiest articulation we’ve seen yet.
