Louis Erard Watches
Louis Erard is a rarity: an affordable luxury watch with a pedigree extending back to the golden age of Swiss timekeeping. Louis Erard was a watchmaker in the era of World War II who hired unemployed students and taught them watchmaking in the storied town of La Chaux-de-Fonds.
The CEO and grandson of the company's founder, Paul Erard registered "Louis Erard" as a trademark in 1978, and today, the watch is available worldwide. The company survived the crisis of the 1980's. Production has moved into a large factory recently, after being bought out by the Bolzi Brozhers.
Louis Erard Watches have a two year international manufacturer's limited warranty.
