The Régulateur Louis Erard x Massena LAB was designed to put on a show. Louis Erard provided the setting, set the stage and directed the theatre of operations, always with the same goal: to offer fine watchmaking quality at an affordable price.
Massena LAB wrote the dialogue between a contemporary watch and a 19th-century marine chronometer with its own guiding principle, as William Massena explains: “A successful collaboration is one that makes sense”. Louis Erard allowed me to mix codes, to cite the classicism of a master watchmaker like Antide Janvier, and to democratize a style that’s usually reserved for wealthy collectors”.
The Régulateur Louis Erard x Massena LAB dial is made up of two levels. The two flanges on the hour and seconds counters (at 12 and 6 o'clock) are rhodium-plated with circular satin finish, with centres in silver-plated opaline. The large central minute hand points towards the outer rhodium-plated flange with circular satin finish. The lower plate is rhodium - or gold-plated, with a grained finish to further increase the contrast with the counters and enhance the readability of the blued steel leaf hands. The polished steel case is fitted with a signature Massena LAB crown.
