Swiss watch brand Louis Erard has announced a new model of the Artistic Craft Line series, which was launched in 2021, and will be released in Japan from October 2022. The series includes collaboration models with famous creators and watchmakers, as well as watches that incorporate traditional Swiss techniques.
This new model incorporates semi-precious stones into the dial, making it a more luxurious model than the previous series.
The case size uses a slightly smaller 39mm size, and it is a finish that not only men who like mechanical watches but also women should wear.
There are three types of semi-precious stones: aventurine, malachite, and lapis lazuli, all of which are also known as power stones.
The three-color dial, inspired by the sky, fir trees, and earth of the Joux Valley, the brand’s hometown, makes you feel the long passage of time since the birth of the earth.
