First Look New Le Régulateur Tourbillon Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein Once Again (Live Pictures)

After the great success of the khaki edition, it's back in the original black

Louis Erard, a renowned Swiss watchmaking brand established in 1929. Throughout its journey, Louis Erard has remained steadfast in its devotion to the art of horological craftsmanship, placing a special focus on crafting creative watches. After a series of distinguished collaborations between Louis Erard and the French designer Alain Silberstein, last year culminated in three watches in khaki, along with the introduction of the first tourbillon watch from the brand.

Now, Louis Erard unveils yet another collaboration with Alain Silberstein, the striking “Le Régulateur Tourbillon Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein”. This timepiece features an elegant black dial adorned with vibrant hues, and marking the brand's second tourbillon watch.

The Le Régulateur Tourbillon comes in a meticulously crafted case, exemplifying Louis Erard's commitment to quality. Constructed from micro-blasted grade 2 titanium and polished grade 5 titanium, measuring 40mm in diameter, 11.8 mm in thickness, and 47 mm lug to lug distance. Its vertical sidebar, rendered in polished Grade 5 titanium, adds a touch of refinement, while the conical crown, stamped with the Louis Erard symbol, ensures ease of use. The sapphire crystal, treated with anti-reflective coating on both sides, offers crystal-clear visibility, allowing the wearer to admire the beautiful dial. Additionally, the transparent caseback provides a captivating glimpse into the inner workings of the timepiece.

The watch features a striking black dial that we saw in previous releases. However, it sets itself apart with a beautiful tourbillon that captures the eyes. The black flange, adorned with yellow indices and a distinctive red index at 12 o'clock, adds a vibrant touch to the design. The dial also features a white subdial, accentuated by a bold red triangle hand for the hours at 12 o'clock, and a large center blue arrow for the minutes commands attention, with the tourbillon positioned at 6 o'clock. Completing the ensemble is a small yellow serpentine hand for the small seconds on the tourbillon cage. 

The timepiece is powered by the manual winding BCP T02 tourbillon regulator movement, crafted by the esteemed Swiss atelier of Olivier Mory at BCP Tourbillons in La Chaux-de-Fonds. Operating at a frequency of 21,600 vph (3Hz), and offers an impressive power reserve of 100 hours.

The watch comes with a black nylon strap and a micro blasted grade 2 titanium catch spring bars, quick adjustment and quickly changing, it is limited to 78 pieces and priced at CHF 15,900 equivalent to AED 66,200 AED.
