Massena LAB and Louis Erard have pulled back the curtain on their latest creation, the super stylish “Le Chronographe Monopoussoir.” They’ve got two killer versions of this one – Gold and Rhodium. Each one is a total eye-catcher, pulling from the classic look of marine chronometers and bringing in some solid modern craftsmanship.

You might remember these two teamed up before with the “Le Régulateur,” which got some serious props at the 2022 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. Well, they’ve taken all the cool stuff from that first collab and taken it up a notch with the NEW Monopoussoir. It’s got this old-school vibe reminiscent of the 18th and 19th-century marine chronometers from Antide Janvier and Ferdinand Berthoud – a total nod to the golden age of timekeeping.

The Monopoussoir isn’t just a pretty face, though. It’s packed with a Swiss automatic Sellita caliber SW500MPCa movement inside its sleek 43mm x 50.4mm x 15.7mm stainless steel case. It’s got 25 jewels and hums along at 28,800 vph, with a power reserve that’ll keep ticking for 48 hours. The watch is also water-resistant up to 50 meters – not that you’ll be diving with it, but it’s nice to know it won’t conk out in the rain. Plus, it has the hours, minutes, monopusher chronograph functions, and a thirty-minute counter right at 12 o’clock.

But back to the face of this beauty: The main dial, plated in either yellow gold or rhodium and frosted for contrast, is a total standout. The outer ring is all done up with minute and second markings, and there’s a silvered opaline thirty-minute counter to boot. And check out those elegant feuille hands in blued steel, matched perfectly with black indices.

Each Monopoussoir comes with a 22mm black calfskin leather strap that you can switch out quickly thanks to its quick-release function, and a steel pin buckle. And of course, it arrives in a snazzy Louis Erard box, complete with a warranty card and a certificate of authenticity.

Here’s the kicker, though – there’s only 178 of these babies worldwide (100 in Gold and 78 in Rhodium), and they’re up for grabs for $4,950 each. So if you’re after a timepiece that’s the perfect blend of vintage and modern, the Chronographe Monopoussoir is just the ticket. You’ll get a piece of horological history, all while showing off your cutting-edge style.

Due to the unpredictable and volatile market on certain Rolex, Patek Philippe and Audemars Piguet watches, prices are subject to change.
