Louis Erard Excellence Petite Seconde Aventurine, Lapis-Lazuli and Malachite

Louis Erard presents three new limited editions of its Excellence Petite Seconde watch. Limited to 99 pieces, they respectively feature Aventurine, Lapis-Lazuli and Malachite dials.

The dials are openworked. The small seconds pierces the flat stone and glass of their opaline dial. The contrast goes beyond the aesthetic shock. It has a meaning: the meeting of times and materials.

Each dial is unique and bears the traces of the millions of years that have shaped the natural stones and mineral glass from which they are made. The precious stone dials recall the long history of traditional watchmaking.
