Louis Erard unveils two new controllers with Konstantin Chaykin

It’s impossible not to think of last year’s Louis Horror, not to mention the timing. In this dark, offbeat theme, it’s not seconde/seconde/ with whom the Swiss brand is collaborating, but a monument to watchmaking named Konstantin Chaykin with whom Louis Érard gives life to a duo named Dusk to Dawn.

Less jovial and more frightening than the famous ” Wristmons “ by the famous St Petersburg-based master clockmaker, this offbeat version of the Regulator by Louis Érard was inspired by a cyclops with a saw-like mouth just like the Slavic legend of Likho. If its aesthetic codes remind you of anything, you have a good memory, because the “time-eater” had already made a first appearance in April via two other limited editions. One of them was even shortlisted for the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG)!

This new collaboration takes two forms: a 42mm polished stainless steel case, and a 39mm black PVD-coated sandblasted steel case. The dial back is adorned with a sunray wave motif plate with a black-veined hour disc, a sharp-toothed seconds disc, and a large hand-shaped minute hand. The whole thing is – sit down – mounted on a black toad leather strap with red rabbit leather lining! Each model is limited to 178 pieces and priced at 4,000CHF (excluding tax). The ultimate Halloween watch!
