And it has something very special at 9 o’clock: a few fragments of a brick from the legendary Elland Road stadium, a little piece of history on the wrist. This is a powerful symbol for Louis Erard as well as for Leeds United, which this year made its comeback to the Premier League after a 16-year absence.
