Louis Erard presents a new regulator watch model developed in collaboration with seconde/seconde/ in a limited edition of 178 pieces.
Romaric André, an independent Paris-based creator and the founder of seconde/seconde/ has been known for his unorthodox interpretations of vintage watches. He usually replaces the watch hands with symbols inspired by contemporary culture, the internet, the streets and video games.
For this special edition Louis Erard regulator watch, André took inspiration from the internet, with “404 Error” reinterpreted as a minute hand. Reflecting humour and self-mockery, the brand name on the dial reads Louis Error instead of Louis Erard.
The centrally positioned blue minute hand features 404 number on one end and the alphabet ‘S’ representing seconde/seconde/ on the other end.
