Introduced in 2006, the Les Asymétriques line by Louis Erard offers a wide range of models for both men and women, some even adorned with diamonds. The chronograph boasts slightly off-centre 30 minute and 12 hour timers, arranged beautifully on the black, silvered or even white mother-of-pearl dial, whilst a small sweep-second at six o’clock and a calendar window embellish both men’s and women’s models.
Add to this twelve oversized roman numerals, painted in the same tones, but in contrast, and you have a clearer picture of the Les Asymétriques family. Another attractive feature is the novel position of the large calendar window on some models, with a marker indicating the day’s date. The women’s stainless steel models stand out by their pearlised small sweep second at six o’clock and their optional bezel set with 66 diamonds. The grey satin bracelet adds yet another feminine touch to these timepieces.
