Founded in 1929 in La Chaux-de-Fonds as a school for watchmaking, the brand began selling watches in 1931. After a couple of acquisitions and some internal turbulence, Louis Erard is now based in Le Noirmont, Switzerland and produces accessible luxury Swiss watches. Most pieces feature mechanical Sellita movements and many are regulators, a style going back to master clocks of the 18th century. At the time, a clock’s minute hand was the most important reference for watchmakers and the others were relegated to smaller, out-of-the-way registers. The style is popular for watch collectors today and brands like Chronoswiss have pioneered modern interpretations. The Louis Erard Excellence Régulateur sits between the other two Triptych pieces with a classic design merging with a modern vibe.

“Your heart was warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
