Louis Erard is seasoned in collaborating with independent watchmakers and ateliers, with its latest chapter introducing a very cool twist on its signature regulator-style timepiece. Produced together with Konstantin Chaykin, two limited editions of the Le Régulateur Louis Erard x Konstantin Chaykin are presented. They are based on the Russian watchmaker’s Wristmon concept and depict a one-eyed creature inspired by a Slavic fable with the name of Likho.
At 12 o’clock, the “pupil” rotates in an “eye” and indicates the hours. The small seconds at six o’clock represents the mouth of a monster, while the central minute hand is a claw. A wavy pattern serves as the background for this amazing mechanical performance. The Le Régulateur Louis Erard x Konstantin Chaykin is presented with a diameter of 39mm and 42 mm.
Inside the stainless-steel cases beats a modified Sellita SW266-1 caliber. The automatic movement is exposed through the sapphire crystal case back.
Pricing for the Le Régulateur Louis Erard x Konstantin Chaykin is marked at CHF 4,000 (approximately $4,500).
