Louis Erard has created a new hand-wound regulator, surmounted by a power reserve display, an exclusive feature of the maison.
The watch is characterised by the dial with guilloche stamping and shares the same DNA with its predecessor: sobriety and refinement. The lines are essential, the design is plain, and the movement commands respect.
In fact, the “engine” boasts the prowess of an exclusive Louis Erard feature, an indication of its autonomy. It is enough to evoke this particular feature to see a distinctive architecture emerge: measuring time separately, where the hours, minutes and seconds are isolated. The power reserve module surmounts the dial at 9 o’clock.
This new regulator from Louis Erard is an exercise in style in its own right. The 40 millimetre diameter surface is surrounded by the stainless steel case, and the dial is decorated with an eye to refinement and to aesthetics; the background is silver-toned and has delicate guilloché stamping, four blued hands and Roman numerals to read the hours.
