Official description

La Petite Seconde Metropolis Louis Erard x The Horophile - When Louis Erard meets an insider with a passion for fine independent watchmaking, they don't just talk, they create. The result is a new collection base for Louis Erard's 39 mm Petite Seconde: three variations (slate, salmon, tobacco) on a New York-inspired Art Deco style revisited in a resolutely contemporary spirit - neo deco! Limited edition, 178 pieces on all the variations.

"Thank you." For once, why not start at the beginning? Because the Louis Erard x The Horophile collaboration - like all Louis Erard's other collaborations - is a human adventure before being a watch. A meeting of minds at a human level. Two hands reaching out, greeting and thanking one another. And from these encounters, timepieces are born.

As always, this watch has more than just one function; it doesn't just politely tell the time, it carries a message: together we're stronger. This watch is the result of sharing, sharing cultures, views, desires and passions. Louis Erard, who has become a mentor for fine affordable watchmaking in Switzerland under the impetus of its director Manuel Emch. Amr Sindi, better known by his Instagram handle @TheHorophile, marketing consultant to watchmakers and independent producer of limited series. With an added fraternal touch: Manuel Emch and Amr Sindi share a deep friendship spanning over 15 years.

This watch - these watches, in fact, because there are three of them – is conceived as a collection within the collection. "A base on which other special series could be built," says Amr Sindi.
