Louis Erard “1931” Classic: Small Seconds, Moon Phase and GMT Watches

A return to the brand’s roots, the benchmark “1931” collection symbolises the founding elements of a family. By virtue of its strong appeal, technical features and classic, reassuring design, it is a showcase for Louis Erard’s expertise. This is the brand’s key product line, one that harks back to the beginning of its extraordinary history, and even to its rebirth.

When it first appeared, the “1931” collection made a huge impact, embodying as it did Louis Erard’s ability to ennoble the germ of an idea. Slightly reinterpreted in 2007, the “1931” timepieces trigger even stronger sensations today, with lovers of fine workmanship immediately falling under their spell.

Discreet and refined, these new models display a classic design that is both distinctive and exceptional. These watches are equipped with useful complications: a small seconds, a moon phase or a second time zone.
