STORY OF A BRAND
A blend of horological tradition and contemporary design, all Louis Erard timepieces continue to be made in Switzerland and, with full respect for the whole concept of Haute Horlogerie, only house mechanical movements.
Mechanical watches Exclusively
In keeping with Switzerlands rich 400-year old tradition of watchmaking, Louis Erard puts the mechanical movement at centre stage. After all, a mechanical watch is not a machine, but a living object. Something tactile that beats, stops and starts again.
In a Haute Horlogerie spirit
LHorloger-créateur de Montres mécaniquesis keen to show all watch aficionados that expertise, flawless quality, and small complications can go hand-in-hand with affordable prices. To offer consumers what they want: this is the principle behind Louis Erards creations and its three collections.
