But don’t forget, this is a Laurent Ferrier watch as well. The maestro is well known for his love of vintage racing and automobiles, and you can see it strongly in the swooping lines of this case. You might be thinking that the case is platinum or white gold or maybe even steel. But no. The material is actually the namesake for the watch, and it’s called Arpal+. It’s typically used in high-tech applications and it’s a color-fast, oxidization-resistant alloy of 75% precious metals and 25% other elements. This alloy, of course, comes from a Swiss company, and I’m excited to see what it looks and feels like in person soon. The case itself measures 60.8mm long, 40.9mm wide, and 20.7mm thick.
