W&W 2020 – Laurent Ferrier

Grand Sport Tourbillon

As happened a year ago with the launch of this watch for the first time, this new edition comes with the same Limited Edition of 12 pieces, the previous gradient brown dial is now replaced by a deep blue that together with the orange luminescence markers, make this piece a beauty. The other big improvement brought with this launch is the integrated bracelet, replacing the previous rubber strap, bringing a much better balance to the watch.

The 44mm in diameter and the price of €163,500, it seems crazy to us, even recognizing that the watch is beautiful and also has a great movement. Although the 44mm can be justified by the existence of a Tourbillon, the high price seems to be more difficult to explain, given that competing models from leading brands, such as Audemars Piguet through the Royal Oak or Patek Phillipe through the Nautilus seem to be more accessible options.

Other specifications: stainless steel case, small seconds dial at 6 o’clock, 100m of water resistance, an in-house manual movement Caliber LF 619.01 and 80h of power reserve.
