Louis Erard 1931 Open Tonneau Moon Phase

Swiss watchmaker Louis Erard has launched an open-worked version of its 1931 Tonneau Moon Phase watch.

The fine openwork of the guilloché dial reveals a skilfully-made mechanism that activates the day, month and moon phase discs, while the gear-trains evoke the film Modern Times, another masterpiece combining retro and modernity.

The curved sapphire crystal conveys a sense of size and luminosity to the whole piece. The micro-mechanical engine beating inside this stainless steel watch is the automatic ETA 2824 calibre with Dubois Dépraz 9000 module.
