Classic Origin Opaline
The acclaimed Maison LAURENT FERRIER, celebrates its 10th anniversary with the release of a classical watch featuring a timeless dial and case ensemble. The Classic Origin Opaline, housed in a sporty Grade 5 titanium case, upholds the company’s revered standards of craftsmanship and horological virtue.
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 Opaline is fully wound, it will run autonomously for 80 hours, courtesy of its admirable power reserve.
A Design Revisit
This latest timepiece from LAURENT FERRIER, the Classic Origin Opaline, is designed for those individuals who value sobriety and virtue. Created to mark the 10th anniversary of the company, this latest model is housed in a 40mm classic case and encompasses the same smooth curving lines as the inaugural model. However, in this instance, the case is formed of Grade 5 titanium, imbuing the watch with a youthful temperament.
Consistent with the Genevan Maison's inclination for uncluttered aesthetics, the Classic Origin Opaline exhibits a pure appearance. Assegai-shaped hour and minute hands serenely float above a silvery-white opaline dial. The slate grey dial's hour track is marked with burgundy-coloured numerals which prove highly legible, add a soupçon of sportiness, but remain tastefully understated. A small snailed seconds display, featuring a baton-shaped hand is located above 6 o’clock. All three hands are formed of 18-carat white gold.
