Louis Erard Heritage Open Fume Watch Review

Jewellery & Watch News

Louis Erard have welcomed a new duo of timepieces into the Heritage family, the Louis Erard Heritage Open Fume watches. Available with a royal blue or emerald green dial, the beauty of these new releases lies in the simplicity of the hours, minutes and seconds which have been made all the more remarkable for the addition of a skeletonised aperture at 12 o’clock.

The Louis Erard Heritage watch collection has remained a classic ever since it was redesigned back in 2016, where new modern materials and functionality were paired with the inherently traditional aesthetics, Swiss charm and innovation it was previously admired for. It is here where Swiss watchmaking is at its finest, a place where classic hours, minutes and seconds function is delivered with smooth stainless steel cases, finely detailed dials and a choice of high-precision quartz or automatic movements. Today, the Swiss manufacturer introduce two new Louis Erard Heritage Open Fume watches into the collection, providing a touch of complexity into an otherwise straightforward collection.

There are currently two Louis Erard Heritage Open Hume watches to choose from. The first is adorned with a blue dial inspired by the magical “L’Heure Bleue” or the ‘blue hour’ with exquisite shading into black on the contour which gives stunning depth and intensity. The second follows suit with one of 2020’s biggest trends, a deep green sunburst dial this time supposedly inspired by the nature and purity of the Swiss Jura. While the colours of the dials are magnificent, it is really the openwork aperture at 12 o’clock that has our attention as it reveals a glimpse into the masterful automatic winding movement beneath.

Peeking through the skeletonised opening is the Sellita SW200-1 automatic winding movement, a classic calibre widely regarded as one of the best for providing classic hours, minutes and seconds. Equipped with 26 jewels, the Swiss made movement also provides the Louis Erard Heritage Open Hume watches with a power reserve of 38 hours and a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. For those teased by the movement on the dial, you’ll be pleased to hear more is exposed through a sapphire crystal case back where you can see some of the jewels and the oscillating rotor twirl with every movement of the wrist.

The Louis Erard Heritage Open Hume watches are perfectly sized as a unisex timepiece, measuring to 41mm in diameter and engineered from polished stainless steel. The cases also boast sapphire crystal above the dial with anti-reflective treatment on both sides, a classic smooth fixed bezel and a water resistant rating of 50 metres. To complete the handsome aesthetic of both timepieces, each Louis Erard Heritage Open Hume watch is available on a luxurious black crocodile-style calfskin leather strap with a traditional stainless steel pin buckle for securing it comfortably to the wrist.
