Louis Erard Excellence Anniversary Collection

The Excellence anniversary collection was launched in 2011 on the occasion of Louis Erard brand’s 80’th anniversary (1931 -2011). To mark this event the company has launched some fine exclusively mechanical watches to reaffirm its dynamism, creativity and expertise through a new line of watches built to last and evocatively named “Excellence”.

Impelled by this unique jubilee fervour, the new collection vividly epitomizes the brand’s signature codes in a tribute to the origins and traditional values that have forged its strength over eight decades. Classicism and originality, complexity and understatement are combined with great talent, and mingled with exclusivity and accessibility to form a concentrated blend of the qualities characteristic of all timepieces bearing the Louis Erard signature.

This new collection comprises a total of seven models – five for men and two for women – all available in steel or rose gold versions. These include Power-Reserve display and Regulator or simple Power-Reserve variations, a Chronograph with moon phases and 24-hour indicator, and three-hand watches. Even though mechanical watchmaking remains the core of the self-winding models, it is undoubtedly in the hand-wound watches that Louis Erard most clearly expresses its vocation as a movement manufacturer. The two manual-winding models incorporate its uncompromisingly sophisticated in-house modules featuring exclusive and unique complications.

A round case (36 mm for women and 40 mm for men), an understated white dial, hour-markers and Roman numerals : the key attributes of the Excellence collection offer a clearer than ever reflection of the design codes cherished by Louis Erard, expressed through decidedly neoclassical touches and a wealth of variations. This resolutely Haute Horlogerie spirit offered at unbeatably competitive prices confirms the brand’s status as the watchmaker that counts – in more than one way.
