"Charmed" best describes the reaction that greeted Laurent Ferrier's wristwatch called the Montre Ecole, or "School Piece". It represented the watchmaker's earliest development, returning to the basic pieces which forged his abilities as a watchmaker.


For 2017, Laurent Ferrier will be launching a new Regulateur display on a base of a Galet Micro-Rotor movement, housed in a School Piece case. Its visage is classical, with the most important of the three indicators the large, centrally-positioned hand displaying the minutes. Above the center, at 12 o'clock is the hours display, while below it, at 6 o'clock is the seconds subdial.


Technical Specifications:
The case, in 18kt white gold or in stainless steel, measures 40mm x 10.9mm. It has double sapphire crystals and it is water resistant to 30 meters.

Movement is the Swiss automatic Laurent Ferrier in-house caliber 228.01 with 35 jewels, 21,600 vph and a power reserve of 3 days. Pawl-fitted micro-rotor, Silicon escapement with double direct impulse on the balance, silent block shock protection type system for the micro-rotor.

Côtes de Genève pattern on the bridges and the circular graining on the mainplate. Flanks are hand-drawn, wheel spokes are bevelled, screw heads are polished, and interior angles of the balance-cock are hand crafted with a burin. The micro-rotor bridge is hand polished. Functions are: hours, minutes, and small seconds at 6 o'clock.


The dial is silver toned, vertical satin-brushed finish. Hour and Seconds counters recessed with a nickel snailed finish. Roman numerals for the jours painted in black. Railway minutes track in slate grey with blue painted Arabic numerals. Blue painted "Regulateur" inspired by the Laurent Ferrier typography. Hands: hours "leaf-shaped" hand in 18kt white gold with black ruthenium treatment. Minutes "assegai-shaped" hand in 18kt white gold with black ruthenium treatment. Seconds hand baton-shaped in 18kt white gold with black ruthenium treatment.

It comes on a hand-sewn grey alligator leather strap, with Alcantara lining and an 18kt white gold or steel folding clasp.
