One of the most useful complications in watchmaking is the day and date. How many times in your life have you caught yourself wondering what day it was? I know it has happened to me many times, and that is reason enough to acquire a timepiece with a day-date complication. Next time you look at the date on your watch and ask yourself what day of the week it is, consider this watch with the day prominently displayed.
Louis Erard has created a watch which has an elegant and classic look, while inside of the polished 40 mm steel case an automatic movement keeps the watch alive, as long as you’re wearing it on your wrist. Obviously, the day complication will always be accurate, but you will need to adjust the date in every month that has fewer than 31 days. As the crown allows for separate day setting, this is a quick and easy operation. Only in a perpetual calendar watch would you not need to adjust the date. However, a perpetual calendar is a rather complicated complication. Only small number of such watches are made by the world’s most expert watchmakers.
This timepiece comes in different variations, such as silver, bronze or black dial. The silver and black dials come with stick or roman markers. While the stick markers have a timeless look, the roman markers exude a beautiful elegance which few watches possess. The bronze dial sticks out and presents a more feminine appearance which is probably the reason why it features a steel bracelet as opposed to the leather straps on the other versions.
