Never knew about this either, but sadly it looks like a fake to me.

Not so sure Cylon. I went to an AD here in Vancouver a couple weeks back and was shown the exact same watch in pink gold. The salesperson told me it was made for the Asian market. The proportions were great, slimmer bezel than the regular Master Control but not ultra thin.


Not surprised an Asian market watch would also appear in Vancouver with the large population here.

Didn't mean to imply that picture is of a fake or that that watch doesnt exist in the JLC line...just something looks off with it. Can't put my finger on it, but if I saw it in the wild, thats what I would think.

Its kind of cloudy and gray here today.  So here is something with a little color to brighten the day.

Well, for a watch in the Laurent Ferrier price point, even if the company ceases to exist, servicing and repair will still be possible and ecnomical, given the value. It's like the restoration of a vintage Breguet or Cartier today. Also, the LF watches are traditional in materials and constsruction, so making new parts from scratch for the commonly worn out bits is something a competent watchmaker can do.

Here are some pics of the LF tourbillon.

Thought I'd share something with you guys. I recently stumbled across this model and have been in love with it. Time to start saving.

Is a 39mm Explorer going to look too large on 7" wrists?
