Louis Erard 1931 New Chocolate Dial Models

At Basel-world 2008, Louis Erard unveiled new “1931” models in chocolate tones.

In 1931, the very first Louis Erard watch appeared on the market. Almost eighty years on, the 1931 remains crucial to the brand as it embodies High Horlogerie at affordable prices: the finest movements, classic yet contemporary models, and very attractive prices. This very appealing formula has now inspired the watchmaker to offer its legendary 1931 Collection in a new colour: chocolate.

Meeting today’s trend for browns, Louis Erard is offering a range of watches in its benchmark collection that are both masculine and harmonious.

The Louis Erard 1931 Moon Phase watch moon phase watch is now available in a new version featuring chocolate dial with silvered indexes. This 40mm watch in stainless steel features a beautiful moon-phase indicator at 6 o’ clock. It also features triple calendar with day and month windows at 12 o’ clock and a centre hand for displaying the date.
