Louis Erard is a Swiss watchmaker who is focusing on manufacturing mechanical watches with a classic and elegant appearance. Take a look at the Louis Erard regulator presented here, which is a manual wind timepiece with an ETA Peseux movement 7001 RE9 with Louis Erard complications, including a regulator hand showing the minutes, a power reserve at 9 o’clock, and a small second at 6 o’clock, while the hour is shown in the gauge at 12 o’clock. Accordingly, the watch depicted here shows 10 minutes after 10 o’clock and about 40 seconds.
This timepiece belongs to the 1931 collection which focuses on mechanical timepieces for watch aficionados with small complications such as a power reserve or a regulator. This model features a contemporary 42mm size, complemented by a beautiful silver dial which looks very clean despite having several complications. As a result, it is easy to read and understand, which is not always the case when you look at complicated watches.
The beautifully brushed steel case possesses a see-through back which offers you an open view on the highly finished hand-wound movement. Honestly, such a beautiful movement would be a reason to wear the watch in reverse showing only the movement, as it is really exciting to watch the gears and balance spring do their work to keep this living object alive.
