As the effects of climate change become more and more “tangible”, luxury’s leading names are responding to the need for urgent action to stem environmental destruction and loss of biodiversity.
Pushing the boundaries of its artistic design even further, Louis Erard reveals a completely unique triptych. Alain Silberstein was given carte blanche, designing the series of three watches like a picture over three panels. Three lots of 178 models at accessible prices.
