Louis Erard Excellence Émail Grand Feu II | LE99
Louis Erard continues its odyssey at the heart of métiers d’art with Grand Feu enamel in a new interpretation of this exclusive craft already explored in 2021. The Louis Erard Excellence Émail Grand Feu II returns in a contemporary classic with subtlety. Every colour you see on a watch requires processing in a kiln at more than 800°C. The artisan’s dexterity changes nothing: you cannot play with fire with impunity and, despite an expert touch, the high level of waste is irreducible. When everything goes well, the result is total. The quality of a Grand Feu enamel dial is unsurpassable.
A limited edition of 99 pieces.
The ancient technique of Grand Feu enameling is presently used only by some of the most high-end of watch manufactures, an exquisite tradition that is a hallmark of both historical and fine contemporary watchmaking. For this intricate treatment Louis Erard once again turned to one of the foremost expert companies on Grand Feu enamel, Donzé Cadrans.
A bright contrast to the cream Grand Feu enamel dial, Louis Erard carries through the inspiration of the Jura Mountains with the execution of the signature hands in blued steel that stand out magnificently against the white Grand Feu enamel dial. The automatic calibre keeps time running smoothly with an understated sub-seconds dial located above 6 o'clock. Louis Erard's refined expertise is on full display with this gorgeous timepiece in a 39mm stainless steel case.
