La Petite Seconde Metropolis Louis Erard x The Horophile Tobacco

BHD 989.000


When Louis Erard meets an insider with a passion for fine independent watchmaking, they don’t just talk, they create. The result is a new collection base for Louis Erard’s 39 mm Petite Seconde: three variations (slate, salmon, tobacco) on a New York-inspired Art Deco style revisited in a resolutely contemporary spirit.

This Metropolis watch is based on the Louis Erard Petite Seconde, classic in its 39 mm steel case, with its “LE” signature crown – the only place where the brand logo appears. Everything else is new, built like a journey between two times, between two centuries, between the Roaring 20s and our own 20s. The result is the invention of a new style: neo-deco, a concatenation of Art deco and the contemporary spirit.
