Louis Erard?

Post by Guest on 2012-10-12, 10:23

I'm considering picking this up as part of a trade deal with another guy. I like the dial and I really like the movement (ETA 2895). Does anyone have any experience or info on this brand?

To the best of my knowledge, it is a decent quality entry level luxury brand. Not much exposure Stateside, I don't think they have a big AD network here.

Thanks for the info. I'm a little gun shy on picking this up, but according to my research, I'm gonna come out on top on this trade (he gets a T-Rex 2824 and a crappy Swiss Legend Abyssos 2836).

I know right? When he offered me the watch, I initially turned it down because I wasn't too hip on the dial. But after looking into it, I decided I would have to be brain damaged not to jump on it.
I just received my FedEx tracking number today... So, we'll see how this plays out.

They have been around since the 1930's, making movements for others, they seem OK.
Noticed that the LE post stated that is fitted with an ETA 2895-2 with 30 stones (jewels) that is incorrect as the ETA 2895 is a 27 jewels movement (unless of course it has been modified) otherwise it seems too good to be true, but you'll never know, good luck .

Well, it showed up today. I've been at a convention for work all week and had FedEx hold it until today, since it had to be signed for "directly".


I like it. A few more "swirlies" than I expected, but overall, I'd rate it 90%-ish. It'll be a great addition to my shallow "dress watch" pool.

Thanks for the info Eddie. I appreciate it.
