Brand founder Laurent Ferrier was born in 1946 in a family of watchmakers. Laurent took his first steps in high watchmaking under the guidance of his father. After graduating from a watchmaking school, he joined Patek Philippe. There he worked on the prototype of the iconic Nautilus model with Gerald Gent.
Laurent Ferrier was also a semi-professional racing driver who drove the Lotus 18, Porsche 934, Porsche 935 and BMW M1. In 1979, he finished third in the Le Mans race, behind Paul Newman. During those years, he met and befriended Francois Cervanin, who later became his business partner. He worked at Patek Philippe for the next 30 years, rising to the position of CTO before launching his eponymous brand in 2010.
