Louis Erard | Alain Silberstein diptych


2022, year of the figure two. Couple, duo, tandem. History is written by two, the adventure is lived by two: Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein.

Manuel Emch, CEO and artistic director of Louis Erard, has once again invited Alain Silberstein to continue the collaboration started in 2019. The fusion of the two worlds has this time given birth to a diptych. Two mechanical variations: a regulator, an original complication from Louis Erard; and a Smiley weekly calendar, Alain Silberstein’s emblematic interpretation in which every day has its face, its mood, its humour. The two references are produced in a limited series of 178 pieces, sold as a diptych or separately.

Apart from the white dial and the light grey strap, this diptych picks up the exterior elements of the 2021 triptych version. A case composed of a tubular container in microblasted grade 2 titanium and transparent caseback, fixed on a vertical sidebar called a “brancard” in polished grade 5 titanium and flanked by a signature conical crown stamped with the Louis Erard symbol. The strap is made of special nylon that is breathable, ergonomic and adjustable for perfect wearing comfort.
