Introduction

Founded in 1929, Louis Erard is a watchmaker that is filled with heritage and history. Acquired in the 1990s before it was relaunched during the independent watchmaking boom of the early 2000s, in 2003, the brand has established a strong design language that doesn't break the bank. Since then, Louis Erard has built a passionate customer base that continues to grow thanks to the popularity and success of their collaborative projects and impressive individual exploits. One of their most successful collaborations is with famed French designer and watchmaking industry veteran Alain Silberstein. Released in 2021 as Louis Erard's second collaboration with Alain Silberstein, the Le Triptyque Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein was a collection of three different timepieces that each featured a unique set of functions and layout while also being limited to just 178 pieces each. Offered here, we have the Regulator variant, or the Le Régulateur II as it is known, that follows on from the pair's original 2019 collaboration. Featuring a 40mm case, Le Régulateur II is an exceedingly unique timepiece with vertical sidebars or 'brancards' that are not a common sight in watchmaking. Made from micro-blasted grade 2 titanium, its lugs, case, and bezel all sport a matte finish, while its grade 5 titanium vertical sidebars feature a polished finish. Sporting an incredibly unique dial, the Le Régulateur II's black dial features Alain's visual style in abundance. With a silver subdial and multi-colored hands made from various shapes, the Le Régulateur II blends yellow with red and blue to create a visual delight and allow each constituent of the regulator's display to remain clear, and legible.

THE DIAL

With its matte black dial, silver subdial, and eclectic blend of colorful hands and markers, Le Regulateur II features Alain Silberstein's design DNA in abundance.

THE CONSTRUCTION

A tonneau-shaped construction of sorts, Le Regulateur II's brancards accentuate its polished circular case, thus allowing it to take center-stage alongside its colorful dial.
