Swiss watchmaker Louis Erard joined forces with French designer Alain Silberstein to create three signature limited edition timepieces – the La Semaine, Le Régulateur II, and Le Chrono Monopoussoir – and a Le Triptyque set including all three. 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.
Those who purchases Le Triptyque Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein collector’s box set, have a personal, non-fungible token linked exclusively to their triptych. This guarantees and protects the authenticity of the limited edition. Collectors can also customize their digital token with a private message.
The case of the watches consists of a frame with vertical sidebars called “brancards”, flanked by a conical crown. Water-resistant to 100 meters, it is complemented by a nylon strap with a flap. The soft and breathable strap features a quick-fit closure, while the tight mesh of the double-layer nylon forms a surface that won’t retain moisture.
The La Semaine Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein features three hands and date and day. This model boasts the exquisite weekly planner developed by Alain Silberstein – the days do not have names, but rather playful smileys.
The Le Régulateur Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein II model has a large blue arrow hand for the minutes, a red triangle for the hours, and a small yellow serpentine hand for the seconds. Telling the time becomes separated into its different parts in a joyful language.
The third part of the triptych is an all-new chronograph – Le Chrono Monopoussoir Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein. It features centrally placed hour and minute hands, with the chronograph seconds hand at the center and a 30-minute counter at 12 o’clock.
The La Semaine and Le Régulateur II models are priced at $3,900, the Le Chrono Monopoussoir costs $5,000, and $12,389 is the price for the set of all three.
