Founder

Laurent Ferrier, born December 19, 1946, is a son and grandson of watchmakers.[2] His father worked on watches giving young Laurent an early exposure to Haute Horlogerie.[2] He trained at a watchmaking school and joined Patek Philippe shortly after. There, he worked on the prototype of the Genta-designed Nautilus.[3]

Laurent Ferrier was also a semi-professional car racer, driving various models such as the Lotus 18, Porsche 934, Porsche 935, and the BMW M1.[4] In 1979 he finished 3rd at Le Mans,[4] behind Paul Newman. It was during his racing years that he met and befriended François Servanin who would later become his associate. He worked at Patek Philippe for the next 30 years attaining the rank of technical director before launching his eponymous brand in 2010.[5]
