Louis Erard takes us on a dark and strange adventure with the latest collaboration - an ode to the unusual with the Master of Horological Creature creations himself, Konstantin Chaykin. Drawing inspiration from the infamous Likho charcter of Slavic fairy tales, Louis Erard's Régulateur calibre has been sacrificed to the most unusual of beasts - The Time-Eater, a mythologically inspired saw-toothed cyclops. 

This fantastical monster (seen here in 39 mm with a purple hour ring) shows off a single eye hour sub-dial that watches time pass by. Its small seconds "mouth" counter at 6 o'clock devours every second of the day with its menacingly sharp toothy grin. The hour and minute hands have been manipulated into the creature's arms, with gestures that are left up its collector to interpret. Finishing off this freaky masterpiece is a toad leather black strap lined with shockingly purple rabbit leather.
