Tasteful and conservative representing a good value for a Swiss watch is usually what you get with Louis Erard timepieces. None of those unspoken mottos change with the new for 2011 Heritage Sport Chronograph Automatic watch.You pretty much have a steel sports chronograph watch with applied Roman numeral hour markers. This watch doesn't attempt to "rock the boat" at all, but just offers something with wide appeal.
The 42mm wide case is in steel and dial colors available include blue, black, and silver. There is also a women's model with mother-of-pearl and diamonds. The polished bezel slopes dramatically, while there is another slope on the inside of the dial for the flange ring that has the tachymeter scale on it. This will give the appearance of a "deep-set' dial. The hands are large and lume covered for easy reading. Inside the watch is a Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic movement. With large pushers and an easy to read face, the Louis Erard Heritage Sport Chrono won't win and fancy design awards, but will likely offer a painless wearing experience. Translated - makes for a good gift.
