Introducing the Louis Erard 66 226 AA 01 Limited Edition 1931 Vintage Small Seconds Watch

by John Sealander  

This superb vintage Louis Erard timepiece not only keeps you on time, it also takes you back in time.

Louis Erard WatchesThe 1930’s were a time when major changes were sweeping the world. When the first Louis Erard watches were introduced in 1931, the Empire State Building had just been completed and The Star-Spangled Banner had recently been adopted as the United States national anthem. It was a time when many men were beginning to replace their trusty pocket watches with something new: a practical, reliable wristwatch.

The elegant 40 mm limited edition Louis Erard Vintage Small Seconds 66 226 AA 01 introduced at Baselworld 2014 celebrates those momentous times with a nostalgic re-interpretation of the classic men’s wristwatch. The vintage three-hand configuration features a beautifully finished silver-tone dial with a traditional small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock, along with an easy-to-read and completely modern date window at 3 o’clock.
