THE TIME-EATER

Louis Erard delivers his regulator as a sacrifice to a grotesque cyclops, a one-eyed monster to which the mechanics give life. This cyclopean gaze takes up the original elements of the Wristmons and more particularly of Konstantin Chaykin's first Joker watch. This cyclops named Likho does not come from Greece, but from the Balkans, and symbolises the evil eye in Slavic tales. Konstantin Chaykin was inspired by this character for this new carte blanche. This collaboration between Louis Erard and Konstantin Chaykin links two different worlds: affordable Swiss watchmaking and creative haute horlogerie. The watch, limited to 178 pieces, is based on the architecture of Louis Erard's signature regulator, with a central minute, an hour at noon and a small seconds at six o'clock. The eye of the Likho has become the focal point of the watch, while the small seconds is represented by the devouring mouth of the ogre. The central minute hand crosses the dial to represent the monster's arm. The strap is made of black toad to further underline the unexpected and gently monstrous side of this timepiece.

And if this was only the beginning...
