Louis Erard La Sportive New Limited Edition Chronographs in Titanium or Bronze

Swiss watchmaker Louis Erard has expanded its La Sportive collection by launched four new chronographs in limited series of 250 examples each. Each of these four timepieces concentrates the excellence of high watchmaking without the excessive price.

Available in Grade-5 titanium or Bronze CuSn8 case, these new highly technical chronograph watches establish a new standard of watchmaking excellence in keeping with the approach taken by Louis Erard beginning in 1929: to offer high-quality timepieces at ultra-competitive prices.

The watch cases are topped with an extra-domed sapphire glass coated with an anti reflective treatment, emphasizing the neo-vintage character of the smoked dials available in four shades: earth, fir trees, sky and mist, four hues that evoke the Jura, the birthplace of Louis Erard.

Each of this La Sportive watch is driven by the popular self-winding Valjoux 7750 calibre. The back of the watch is transparent, revealing the inner movement and self-rewinding weight, which have been redesigned and open-worked in a resolutely sporty spirit.

The space between the lugs has been slightly enlarged, reinforcing the contemporary character of these watches.

The straps are crafted in vintage calfskin and topped with a new clasp, an innovative titanium folding buckle that does not require the leather to be punctured.
