Laurent Ferrier Square California Limited Edition LCF013.AC.CG9C1
Square California This year, Laurent Ferrier has chosen to revisit its iconic model, the Square Micro-Rotor with a reinterpretation of a great watchmaking classic, the Californian dial. A CALIFORNIAN INSPIRATION: Adapted from the famous Art Deco inspired dial which has the particularity of mixing Roman numerals in its upper part with Arabic numerals in the lower part, this new creation also embraces LAURENT FERRIER refined aesthetic codes. This dial configuration, known as Californian, takes its name from the 1940s when a number of watches featuring this style of dial were refurbished by a company based in California. It has since become a watchmaking classic and was initially designed with one aim in mind: to provide optimal legibility in all conditions. Legibility and elegance being the watchwords of the LAURENT FERRIER workshop, they are transposed here in the smallest details of the hands and the incredibly refined decals. In addition to the mix of Roman and Arabic numerals, this new dial features a grey powdered decal at 12, 3 and 9 o'clock, reproducing the outlines of the brand's famous drop-shaped hour markers, filled with white SuperLuminova. The brand's iconic blue dial, is enhanced by a sunburst finish and overlaid with a white railway line, reinforcing the legibility that is so dear to the designer. The entire dial is completed by 18k white gold stamped "arrow" shaped hands filled with white SuperLuminova for the hours and minutes. The snailed seconds dial is punctuated with a fine white decal and topped by a red-painted white gold "baton" shaped hand, giving the entire composition a distinctive sporty spirit. LAURENT FERRIER, who has often reserved his sportiest creations for his American collectors, has once again wished to pay them tribute by dedicating this engraved "California Dreamin" serie exclusively to the US market. Limited to 11 pieces only, they are each numbered from 0 to 10/10.
