LOUIS ERARD x ALAIN SILBERSTEIN Smiley
Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein. Pushing the boundaries of its artistic design even further, Louis Erard reveals a completely unique triptych. Alain Silberstein was given carte blanche, designing the series of three watches like a picture over three panels to make a whole work of art. This is an unprecedented combination of high-end watchmaking and accessible watches. Three lots of 178 models.
2021 marks a new frontier in the collaboration between Louis Erard and Alain Silberstein, with the launch of this triptych. Three watches as work of art; three family members able to shed new light on Alain Silberstein's artistic approach, as well as Louis Erard's watchmaking mastery. Each item is limited to 178 models, 78 of which are to be sold in a collector's box containing the entire capsule as well as a digital artwork signed by the artist.

WHY WE LOVE IT
The triptych begins with a reference to the artist with the La Semaine Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein. With its three hands, date and day, this model features the exquisite weekly planner developed by Alain Silberstein, easily recognisable as his work: the days do not have names, but rather playful smileys.
