You know us here at WWR – we like to talk about what’s happening on the affordable end of the spectrum, as there are a number of well-known sites out there that live solely in the rarified air of luxury watches. Still, we like to daydream just like anyone else, and that’s why we’ve got those “For Your Consideration” articles that pop up now and again. And then, sometimes we get in touch with the right person, and we get to spend some time with one of these high-end watches. We did that recently a few different times. You can read about the first one here, and of course read on to see more about the Laurent Ferrier Classic Origin Blue.
As you’re no doubt aware, at WWR our primary focus is on the more affordable end of the spectrum. Even so, we do like to take a look at what’s in the “money is no object” end now and again. Not that long ago we brought your attention to a newer watch from Laurent Ferrier. While that went for some sports watch sleeper action, today’s focus – the Laurent Ferrier Classic Origin Opaline – is very much a classically-inspired dress watch.
Ok, ok – “introducing” is a bit of a stretch, as this is a watch that hit the streets all the way back in April. That said, it’s been on my list to write up because it’s just such a surprisingly cool, sleeper-style watch. Let’s have a peek at what the Laurent Ferrier Grand Sport Tourbillon has hiding under the hood.
