Louis Erard 1931 Chrono Vintage Limited Edition

Adding « 2015 » to the name of this new timepiece from Louis Erard would make the Watchmaker’s intentions clear even before contemplating it. Each look at this latest chrono sends us time-travelling between past and present. Its design is steeped in the spirit of the 1931 collection - named for the year the company was founded - with a sobriety that only heightens its functionality, a polished steel case and rounded Arabic numerals echoed by hands in the same silver tones.
Yet this is a strikingly modern watch too, from its assertive all-over black to its athletic contours, measuring exactly 42.5 millimetres in diameter, together with a Valjoux movement and a black leather strap. A subtle but seriously masculine watch that relives the past right here in the present. An exploit which Louis Erard underscores with a limited edition of just 500 pieces. Each one is delivered in an exclusive presentation box, accompanied by a Montegrappa pen for the black dial version.
