Louis Erard Excellence Petite Seconde Bleu GlacierSponsored post presented on aBlogtoWatch for an advertiser

Independent Swiss watchmaker Louis Erard has long demonstrated its horological creativity with exciting collaborations, novel designs, and a willingness to have a bit of fun. Just as important, though, is Louis Erard’s proven ability to exhibit sophistication and refinement through classic examples of contemporary high-end watchmaking. While it serves as an equally effective platform for the brand’s more expressive design endeavors, the Petite Seconde models in the Excellence collection are ideal for showing off the brand’s elegance, as well. With a trio of coolly luxurious colors, the Louis Erard Excellence Petite Seconde watches prove that vibrant style can be balanced with exemplary watchmaking without departing the realm of accessibility.

Louis Erard has always made a point of ensuring that the spoils of its watchmaking acumen are not restricted by a price point that makes them unaffordable. Fine timepieces should be available to everyone, and the brand has managed to find the balance between creating incredibly appealing, exciting watches and ensuring the opportunity to own those watches. This fundamental approach is embodied in the colorful trio of Petite Seconde models, which bring a sumptuous palette to one of Louis Erard’s signature cases, imbuing them with the codes of modern luxury watchmaking. Available in the icy Bleu Glacier, regal Violette, and distinguished Bleu Nuit, these colorful models deliver an impressive experience on the wrist.

While the case of the Petite Seconde affords the exceptional quality for which the brand is known, it’s the brilliantly colored dials that truly captivate. Defined by the 6 o’clock small seconds subdial, the watches make no sacrifices where legibility is concerned. A combination of Arabic numerals and pointed batons in a glossy finish catch the light beautifully, while Louis Erard’s trademark fir tree hands are perfectly sized and allow for unrivaled clarity. While the Violette and Bleu Nuit are appointed with silver hands and markers, the lighter Bleu Glacier benefits from gleaming blue elements.

In a more subtle expression of the brand’s artisanship, the dial features three separate finishes across two layers. The main dial features a semi-lustrous satin finish and is accented by the hour ring’s satin circular brushing. The two juxtaposed surfaces create a play of light throughout the day. Surrounded by a polished ring, the namesake small seconds sits just below the plane of the main dial’s plane and is given a dash of verve with radial grooves and a reticle, which, together, lend a slight sportiness to the dial.

The Petite Seconde’s case is an exercise in expert crafting. From the domed sapphire crystal to the engraved crown, no detail has been overlooked. The 39mm stainless steel case is ideally proportioned, measuring 45.9mm lug-to-lug and 12.82mm tall, with tapering curved lugs that embrace the wrist for an effortless presence. Fully polished, the case’s curved lines and gentle silhouette echo the traditional designs of some of the most celebrated watches while simultaneously looking and feeling modern. While the case telegraphs a formal lifestyle, 50 meters of water resistance ensures all-day peace of mind and flexibility for the occasional adventure. Complementing each dial is a color-coordinate 20mm leather strap with curved ends, light padding, and quick-release spring bars, permitting the timepiece to easily accommodate a variety of strap pairings.

On display through a sapphire caseback crystal, the reliable Swiss automatic Sellita SW261-1 drives the Louis Erard Excellence Petite Seconde models. Based on the venerated SW200-1, this caliber omits the date and shifts the second hand from a central mounting to the eponymous 6 o’clock subdial. It runs at 28,800 vph with a minimum 38-hour power reserve, though 41 hours is more typical. Rated to an accuracy of -/+7 seconds per day, each movement has been customized by Louis Erard with the brand’s partially skeletonized rotor with the “LE” logo in black lacquer. The caseback ring continues the polished finish of the rest of the case and is adorned with engraved branding.

Celebrating both Louis Erard and high-end contemporary watchmaking, these exciting Louis Erard Excellence Petite Seconde models deliver a burst of color in a sleek, stylish package. Whether you choose the stately Violette, the refreshing Bleu Glacier, or the more mysterious Bleu Nuit, these timepieces ensure that you’ll channel an elevated sophistication every time you put one on. The Louis Erard Excellence Petite Seconde is priced at  $2,800 USD. For more information, please visit the Louis Erard website
