THE 1977, AN AUTOMATIC WATCH MANUFACTURED IN FRANCE
On the occasion of our 45th anniversary, we are proud to unveil an exceptional watch, manufactured in France: the 1977.

Do not wait any longer to discover it.

Watch and movement
With its unique design, its combination of exceptional components and materials, its subtle details
and its automatic movement with a guaranteed power reserve of 65 hours, the 1977 is a unique, pure and high-performance timepiece.
FRENCH HIGH-PERFORMANCE AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT
As a result of our collaboration with PEQUIGNET HORLOGERIE, the PL1977 self-winding movement of very high preciseness is assembled in the pure watchmaking tradition. Its date disc, entirely redesigned on a blue background with the number 7 in red —in reference to 1977, and its texture in "côte de Genève" with the Pierre Lannier logo openworked make it a unique caliber.
Its performances are exceptional: 65 hours of power reserve, automatic winding in both directions and faster date drive, patented.
HIGH-END CASE FINISHES
Entirely hand-crafted by our designers, its profile is delicately curved on the sides to offer a permanent shine.
Its manufacture was entrusted to BERTHET HORLOGERIE, founded in 1977, and thus benefits from top-of-the-range finishes: 19-notch screw-down crown with the Pierre Lannier logo, 316L steel, sapphire crystal and caseback, as well as nitriding of the bezel to prevent scratching.
Overall dimensions: diameter 42.50 mm / thickness 10.90 mm / lugs 22.00mm
This case and the subtly curved profile on the sides offers us a permanent shine.
A DIAL FROM SWITZERLAND
Born from our designers' deep reflection, the dial is made by the Swiss manufacturer CADRATEC. The disappearance of the last dial makers in France led us to turn to the Swiss border manufacturers, with whom we share a watchmaking savoir-faire to be perpetuated. It is with their expertise that the curved effect allowing to obtain a reflection of the minute track of the watch in its case could be materialized in a dial imagined by our teams.
The brand's distinctive blue sunburst back completes the case with elegance.
Imagined and drawn by our designers, the hands were made by LA PRATIQUE in Morteau (FRANCE).
LEATHER FROM THE LUXURY INDUSTRY
The leather used to manufacture the bracelet has been carefully selected by our designers and product teams. It comes from the French tannery HAAS (67) founded in 1842 and belonging to Chanel. It has been awarded the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant label for its exceptional savoir-faire.
The skins produced were then sent to the SIBRA factory in Besançon, where the artisans handcraft each bracelet. The buckle, specifically created by and for Pierre Lannier, features a "PL" directly engraved on the metal piece.
FROM IMAGINATION TO DESIGN
The savoir-faire of the French house Pierre Lannier is above all a matter of humanity. It is in the hands of Arnaud Vincent and David Florence, the two designers of the brand and Pierre Burgun, son of the founder and general manager that the desire to create a project that is anchored in the DNA of the brand was born.
The 45 years of Pierre Lannier mark the beginning of the high-end era and give the watchmaker a turning point in its history. This history which began in 1977 and which is being written today thanks to you.
