Twelve years after its launch, LAURENT FERRIER is maintaining its momentum with an intense blue version of one of its latest emblematic models, the Classic Origin.
With its Assegai hands, drop-shaped indices, and elegant powdery-grey hour track, as well as the case’s perfect combination of straight and curved lines and the abundance of exceptional finishes on the movement, the Classic Origin Blue from LAURENT FERRIER is a truly iconic piece.
The Classic Origin was initially developed to pay tribute to all the aesthetic codes created by Mr Laurent Ferrier himself in 2010, and it has since become an icon in the LF collection. The latest version features a deep blue dial, which is a breath of fresh air for the entire LAURENT FERRIER collection. The opaline dial presents a gradation of blues that transition from a lighter shade in the centre to deepest blue around the periphery. The discreet powdery-grey hour track is punctuated by sky-blue numerals. The composition is finished off with a powdery-grey centre cross and four of the brand’s iconic drop-shaped indices. A snailed seconds counter at 6 o’clock features subtle sky-blue markers. Sweeping over the dial are LF’s famous Assegai-shaped hour and minute hands, in 18-carat white gold.
The Classic Origin Blue from LAURENT FERRIER is fitted with a midnight blue Nubuck strap with tone-on-tone Alcantara lining, and it is powered by the manual-winding Calibre LF116.01. This movement has been crafted with the greatest refinement and it incorporates a screw balance and Breguet-type overcoil balance-spring. This combination enhances precision and mitigates positional timekeeping errors while improving isochronism. The brand’s famous long-blade ratchet system is another highlight of the movement.
This polished, hand-crafted ratchet is emblematic of the LAURENT FERRIER brand, offering an inimitable sound during winding that is characteristic of the most demanding watches. When the Classic Origin Blue is perfectly wound, it can operate independently for 80 hours thanks to its excellent power reserve.
