Excellence Petite Seconde Terracotta - This time, Louis Erard kept both feet firmly planted on the ground. In the land of the Jura, where the house has its roots and from which it has drawn its inspiration for this natural-coloured version of the Excellence Petite Seconde model. With a first: case available in 39 mm, in addition to the traditional 42 mm. Natural colours. Matt textures. The new version of the Excellence Petite Seconde lives up to its name: Terracotta. A combination of the warmth of the south and the softness of a Franches-Montagnes trail, home of Louis Erard watches.
In a limited production of approximately 100 pieces per year by reference. The model is in line with the natural materials used in the Excellence triptych, in particular the use of stone, aventurine, lapis lazuli and malachite dials. It is no longer a question of stone, but of earth, of terracotta. A choice reminiscent of certain classic creations of the 1950s, but in a very contemporary vintage rendering, which once again underlines Louis Erard's desire to mix genres and make fine watchmaking accessible, under the artistic direction of Manuel Emch.
