In 1931, Louis Erard Put the Mechanical Watch Movement
On Center Stage:  82 Years Later, it’s Still There

Louis Erard WatchesWhen master watchmakers Louis Erard and André Perret brought their first timepiece to market in 1931, they had a dream. Erard wanted to show watch aficionados that watchmaking expertise, flawless quality, and small complications can go hand-in-hand with affordable prices. The company went through difficult times, but Erard never wavered from his goal of creating high quality mechanical watches at affordable prices.

82 years after the first Louis Erard timepieces were introduced; the brand continues to celebrate the virtues of the mechanical movement. The Louis Erard 1931 hand wound 47207AA21.BDCL21 model is a classic example of why Louis Erard timepieces are prized by watch aficionados and other watchmakers around the world.
