La Sportive Limited Edition Titanium

Dedicated to the sports spirit, the new Louis Erard La Sportive is the ultimate proposition for anyone who wants it all in a chronograph watch: precision, reliability, readability, technical achievement, elegance and exclusiveness. This watch, released in a limited series of 250 examples, establish a new standard of watchmaking excellence in keeping with the approach taken by Louis Erard beginning in 1929: to offer high-quality timepieces at ultra-competitive prices.

Let’s begin with the material of the case in grade 5 titanium, which brings this edition a distinctiveness reserved to exceptional watches. Grade 5 titanium is the material of predilection in the most demanding fields of application: aeronautics, medicine and sports. Wherever there is a pursuit of an optimal rapport between lightness and solidity and between comfort and durability; and the need for resistance against shocks, chemicals, and corrosion. 30% harder and 60% lighter than steel, it is both anallergic and anti-magnetic. And let us mention its aesthetic qualities, emphasized by the contrast between satin-finished and polished surfaces. But few watchmaking brands seek to attain this level of excellence.

The watch case is topped with an extra-domed sapphire glass coated with an anti-reflective treatment, emphasizing the neo vintage character of the blue smoked dial.

This timepiece is equipped with an insert bezel featuring a tachymeter crafted in fade-resistant, scratch-resistant black ceramic to match the black minute, hours and small seconds counters.

Technically speaking, this chronograph is driven by a Valjoux 7750 calibre, the most tried-and-true movement of all traditional Swiss chronograph watches. The back of the watch is transparent, revealing the inner movement and oscillating weight, which have been redesigned and openworked in a resolutely sporty spirit.

The space between the lugs has been slightly enlarged, reinforcing the contemporary character of this watch. The strap is crafted in vintage black calfskin and topped with a new clasp, an innovative titanium folding buckle that does not require the leather to be punctured.
