Square Micro-rotor Retro Stainless Steel Case White Dial
Laurent Ferrier has always drawn its inspiration from the time-honoured traditions of Fine Watchmaking. These vintage influences, combined with the eponymous designer’s animist beliefs, make it possible to create watches that are much more than mere tools for telling the time but real multisensory experiences. Through two exclusive pieces, Laurent Ferrier offers its contemporary vision of a legendary theme from the late 1930s. Unique and nostalgic, these new Square Micro-Rotor Retro incorporate a real part of history.
These original interpretations of the Square Micro-Rotor embody a return to Art Deco codes with their 1930s aesthetic characteristic. Unmistakably modern, this artistic style is based on a certain geometric rigour, minimalism and graphic stylisation.
After taming Roman numerals and drop-shaped indexes, Laurent Ferrier is exploring Arabic numerals for this new design. Also known as pilot numerals, they give the whole piece a casual feel while offering exceptional readability. Finely decaled here with an Art Deco touch, the Arabic numerals are combined with a modern, architectural hour circle.
This new Square Micro-Rotor Retro’s 1930s influence can also be seen in the use of metallic colours, expressed in a steel case paired with a delicate silvery-white dial, whose opaline centre contrasts with a subtle circular satin-brushed exterior. A decaled charcoal grey hour circle that match the numbers and small second markers beautifully enhances the whole timepiece.
