    Telling the time has rarely been so playful!

    Following the international success of their first collaboration in 2019, Louis Erard and the designer extraordinaire Alain Silberstein decided to partner up once more, pushing the boundaries of their artistic ethos even further, on the creation of a triptych. Revealed this year 2021, the Louis Erard x Alain Silberstein’s holy trinity combines three watches: La Semaine, Le Chrono Monopoussoir and Le Régulateur II, such as the present lot.

    Cased in a 40mm brushed and polished titanium case with an almost childlike dial, Le Régulateur II allows its wearer to read the time in a joyful manner. Silberstein uses primary colours such as a red triangle to indicate the hours on a subdial at 12 o’clock, a large central blue arrow hand for the minutes and a small swirly yellow seconds hand at 6 o’clock. Indeed, trained as an interior architect and designer, one can’t help but notice the influences of painters such as Paul Klee, Kandinsky, Malevitch or their contemporary Keith Haring in the creation of this sophisticated timepiece.

    Limited to 178 pieces, Le Régulateur II (of which 78 were only available as part of the triptych) is a perfect example of Silberstein’s a fun and quirky take on the regulator design. With a combination of traditional Swiss watchmaking heritage and modern geometrical aesthetics, the present timepiece can only be described as a gratifying piece of mechanical art.

    Presented in unworn, new condition and offered without reserve, the present watch is accompanied by its full set of accessories.
