History of Laurent Ferrier
Laurent Ferrier grew up around watches, as his family’s apartment was above his father’s workshop. To get to his home, he had to walk past his father’s watchmaking bench. He is the third generation of watchmakers in the Ferrier family, and his son, Christian, who is a movement constructor, is the fourth generation.
Progressively, sustainably, Laurent Ferrier’s name is becoming established in the circle of independent Haute Horlogerie. The man embodies the brand; his timepieces embody his workshops, which result from a watchmaking career already spanning almost 40 years. Perfected over several decades, Laurent Ferrier’s holistic vision of watchmaking would profoundly mark his trajectory: that of a man who thinks ahead to production during the development process, foresees finishing in parallel with construction, and who devotes equal attention to aesthetic and technical considerations.
