The association between Louis Erard and the watchmaking artist Alain Silberstein debuted in 2021 with the release of the first triptych with day/date, followed by a regulator and a monopusher chronograph, and a diptych with a day/date hand and a regulator.
Now, their fusion brings three timepieces which include - La Semaine Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Khaki (Ref. 75357TT06.BTT89), Le Régulateur Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Khaki (Ref. 85358TT06.BTT89) which is limited to 178 pieces, and Le Régulateur Tourbillon Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Khaki (Ref. 89356TT06.BTT89), the first tourbillon by the brand limited to 78 pieces and only available in the triptych box.
The new timepieces appear in all Khaki get up because “khaki is simply the colour of the moment, the one that most strongly embodies the spirit of Louis Erard” according to the designers – Alain Silberstein and Manuel Emch, Artistic Director and CEO of Louis Erard watches.
