I have heard that a certain brand from Richemont might have launched something today, I would like to think that if you are a sheep, you are already frequenting one of the other outlets, so feel free to check out what JLC is up to at one of the other “running dog’s” sites ; )

But I suspect, and hope that you drop by Tempus Fugit to find out about what else is going on in the world of watches.

So in that spirit, here are three exciting new offerings from Louis Erard!  The three collectively make up what Louis Erard have named the Excellence Triptyque.  

Here’s the rundown –
