Galet Annual Calendar School Piece
Laurent Ferrier, which is distributed exclusively by DKSH Malaysia, has chosen to make its first appearance here with its SIHH 2018 novelty, an annual calendar powered by its fifth in-house calibre. In a nod to its first calibre, the manual-winding tourbillon double balance spring, the movement features the signature long “blade” type click ratchet.
The highly legible date track on the outer part of the dial is complemented by a red hand that indicates the relevant dates. The day and month windows sit side by side below ‘12’.
The date hand is adjusted with the crown, an action that also automatically corrects the month. A barely conspicuous button on the left side of the case is responsible for adjusting the day. A seconds counter with snail-finished centre and satin-brushed outer circle is located at ‘6’.
The annual calendar, which requires only one adjustment per year on March 1, is available in steel, red gold and yellow gold with in silver or slate grey dial.
