In this new watch, instead of a traditional hand, a pixelated ectoplasm indicates the running second on the sub-dial at 6H. Instead of brand name, the dial features the text Louis Horror, with a touch of blood red color.

Beating inside this ghostly interpretation of the Louis Erard Excellence Petite Seconde watch is the Sellita SW261-1 automatic calibre. This movement is visible through the sapphire crystal case-back.
