The Laurent Ferrier Tourbillon Grand Sport

The watch itself is a 44mm stainless steel number with a new case shape that sits somewhere between tonneau and cushion, still with LF’s signature curves and onion crown. In case you weren’t sure about the “sport” in the name, it’s mounted on a rubber strap and it has a dial punctuated by bright flashes of orange Super-LumiNova, so you can read it in any conditions. The dial is a smoked brown color that fades from almost silver at the center, to a dark warm brown at the edges. Turning the watch over, you’ll find a caliber LF 619.01 finished in a striking ruthenium color (similar to a certain other Laurent Ferrier LE…) and with the brand’s double spiral tourbillon mechanism down at the bottom. It’s totally superlative and a nice balance between traditional watchmaking and modern aesthetics… More here.

It’s not often I see a watch that I really like the design of and then have that completely broken by the strap. It’s a strange combination that looks as if it is trying just a little too hard and the two parts do not go together in any way.
