During the 1970s, Laurent Ferrier was often seen behind the wheel of a racing car. He even competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans seven times. Ferrier, and his teammate on the tracks, François Servanin, co-founded the eponymous watchmaker in 2008. Their shared passion for motorsport is an essential part of the firm’s DNA. In 2010, Laurent Ferrier won the ‘Best Men’s Watch Award’ at the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix (GPHG) for its Classic Tourbillon. The same tourbillon carried into the original Grand Sport Tourbillon which made its debut in 2019 with a nickel opaline dial and brown strap. The brand offers its models under five collections: Classic, École, Square, Bridge and Grand Sport.

For the second iteration of the model, the brand chose to equip the watch with an integrated stainless-steel bracelet. The central row of the 3-rows design is comprised of vertical satin-finished links, and the rounded edges of the links are presented in a contrasting mirror-polish. The 44mm stainless steel case has circular satin-finished elements. The dial is blue opaline. The bezel is cushion-shaped but encompasses contrasting mirror-polished flanks. The tourbillon can be viewed through the case back.
