Went to covent garden swatch as i was in the area was third in the queue thinking sweet i'm good, cunts had no stock even though they said yesterday they're getting stock daily. Geezer reckons they're now only getting stock once a week, so they;re just making it up as they go along.

I think the LF look great on the leather straps… the metal straps cheapen the look IMO… but yeah, great watch to pick up Cool

Classic dress watches look great on leather straps but this is their sports model, I think they did a marvellous job with the titanium

Thank you! They only produced 125 for 2022 and all are spoken for. I was a bit late. Fingers crossed I will pick up mine in early spring next year.

LF watches aren't much of a target in London. Victims of watch crime are mainly Richard Mille, Audemars, Rolex and Patek.. of course there are exceptions

Thank you quest! When they launched the Grand Sport Tourbillon in 2020, I was smitten but the fact that they incorporated a tourbillon in to a sports watch and the eye watering price tag deterred me. I think they listened to their clients and now came up with this model which is very similar in design so I decided to pull the trigger.

As far as the independents are concerned LF is right up there with the best of them, their movements are exquisite and in many cases much better finished than a Patek or an AP.

Here is the backside

Thanks bud. At first I couldn’t understand the unusual date window, it may be intended to evoke the hood vent on a sports car as Ferrier himself has stated that the watch overall is a tribute to his Porsche racing days.

It really is stunning. Love a squarish face watch. It also looks like it wears very thin on the wrist. Hope you get it.

Flew from Heathrow Terminal 2 today - Walked into the Rolex boutique. Salesman was being incredibly condescending to a guy trying to get on a list for an Air King. ‘I have 3,500 regular flyers looking for watches’… Bore off you absolute cunt.
