Last year, Laurent Ferrier introduced its first regulator-style watch. Housed in a classic round case, it was the perfect kind of watch for the brand, which is known for marrying modern watchmaking techniques with traditional aesthetics.

As you might have guessed, it comes in the brand’s very elegant cushion case and features a black dial, which from the press photos at least, looks absolutely mesmerizing.

But sometimes you crave something simple, clean and pure. That’s where this latest take on the Senator Excellence Panorama Date comes in.
