The name Louis Erard might not be immediately recognizable to those not entrenched in the watch world. The brand flies a bit below the radar, but this is a good thing because now you can be let in on a secret not too many people know about. Louis Erard makes great Swiss watches and they have been doing it under their own name since 1931. While the majority of watch houses put resources into quartz movements, Louis Erard made the decision to make house only mechanical movements, putting the mechanics center stage.

The Louis Erard 1931 Men’s Moon Phase watch and cufflinks combination pays homage to our glowing orb in the night sky. In a nice-sized 42 mm stainless steel case, the 1931 Men’s Moon Phase watch features a silver-toned dial with a glorious yellow moon against a starry background at 6 o’clock. While the eye pulls towards the shapely crescents of the moonphase, its design doesn’t overwhelm the composition. Time ticks away on blued hands circling Arabic numerals and dagger hour indexes plus a blued seconds hand with a moon-crescent at its tip.

The Louis Erard 1931 Men’s Moon Phase is more than just its name implies. In addition, the timepiece also incorporates a calendar with a day and month window sitting side by side underneath 12 o’clock and a blued pointer index circling the dial to indicate the date. The black leather strap with folding clasp that complements the silvery dial secures the watch to the wrist. This watch is not only classy and well-designed, it’s also very functional.
True to the Louis Erard philosophy, the 1931 Men’s Moon Phase runs on an automatic ETA 2824 calibre with Dubois Dépraz 9000 complication. The mechanics can be seen on view through the sapphire crystal caseback.
