Louis Erard WatchesTo celebrate its 75th Anniversary, Louis Erard began to reincarnate some of the inspired designs that the brand initially introduced in 1931, while giving them an update for the 21st century. The spectacular Men’s 1931 Exhibition Watch is a testament to Louis Erard’s desire to show the world that traditional craftsmanship, flawless quality, and interesting complications can go hand-in-hand with affordable prices.

The Louis Erard 1931 Exhibition Watch puts a contemporary spin on an inspired open-heart design that goes back to the company’s roots. Powered by a precision 17 jewel ETA Peseux 7001 movement, this spectacular hand-wound timepiece provides a full view of its intricate movement on both sides of the dial.

The innovative open-heart display on the watch dial features a unique transparent continuous small second hand at 6 o’clock. This sub-dial appears opaque, with white lettering on a black background, except for the area that overlaps the exposed balance wheel and escapement mechanism. Here, the subdial appears transparent, revealing the inner workings of the movement below. This intricate and innovative display is characteristic of the quality and craftsmanship that Louis Erard is famous for.

The 42 mm 1931 Exhibition Watch features a partially skeletonized black dial with raised luminous indices. The stylish dial is protected by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal and the durable stainless steel case is water resistant to 165 feet. A comfortable black caoutchouc strap completes the design.
