Up for sale today is a Louis Erard Regulateur from my collection. Louis Erard is one of the coolest brands that is woefully under represented in the US, making it no surprise if you never heard of them. As you can tell from the watch, they?re not joking around either. The watch is Swiss made and features an ETA Peseux 7001 manual movement with an in-house regulateur module (the hour is a sub-dial at 12, seconds at 6 and the central hand is the minutes), and a beautiful textured pale silver dial with heat blue hands. The movement, which is visible though the case back, is decorated with blue screws, cote de Geneve and Perlage under the balance.
The watch, which I would characterize as a dress/casual, measures 40 x 47 x 9.2mm with 21mm lugs. It?s a gorgeous watch that I am only letting go of because I bought something impulsively that I need to pay myself back for, and in the end of the day, I tend to wear sport and vintage watches most of the time. If you?re interested in the regulator style, this is unbeatable at the price.
The watch comes with the original box and papers, but not the original strap. I have it on a bright honey colored, faux-gator leather from C&B, which looks great. The watch is in superb condition, showing almost no wear on the bezel, sides or back. Unfortunately, there are some very superficial marks between the lugs, which I don?t know how the origin of. They were there when I received it. They are not noticeable when the watch is on, so I never dealt with them, but I imagine a jeweler could buff them out easy. With all this in mind, I would rate the watch at 85 - 90% on the TZ scale.
I am asking for $900 OBRO shipping included, Paypal as gift. CONUS preferable.
