AN EXCLUSIVE PRE-ORDER FOR THE 150 YEARS OF THE FIRST TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD IN HISTORY “Louis Moinet has its very own way of celebrating the 150th anniversary of the first transcontinental railroad connecting the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the USA. The innovative mechanical creation in question is both a tribute to the pioneers of yesteryear and an invitation to those of the present day – for whom it is available on a pre-order basis of two limited edition of 18 and 69 watches.” Jean-Marie Schaller, CEO & Creative Director
Robb Report “Best of the Best” award delivers very special recognition for Louis Moinet “Creativity is one of Louis Moinet’s cardinal values, so seeing it rewarded is extremely gratifying. This Robb Report award recognises the best watchmaking visualisation of a concept. It’s a particular source of pride for us because it’s quite unique – just like our watches.”
After the best part of six months of procedures and thorough investigations, Louis Moinet is especially proud to have become the official holder of the title of “First Chronograph”, awarded by the official Guinness World Records organisation.
Louis Moinet’s first ever Hour-Strike “The hour-strike is an extremely rare speciality, and the configuration used by ULTRAVOX is in fact unique. The mechanism has been revealed, enabling it to be admired in all its complexity. The magic of watchmaking mechanics is embodied by the spinning inertia wheel, the moving yokes, and the hammer that marks out the hours. Two hundred years ago, Louis Moinet’s clocks and pocket watches chimed the hours for leading figures of his day. Now, his name has been associated with that of Eric Coudray, an outstanding present-day watchmaker, to create a new masterpiece in the same spirit,” explains Jean-Marie Schaller, CEO of Ateliers Louis Moinet.
Louis Moinet’s Martian odyssey Remember the theory that the Martians built canals on Mars as a means of irrigating their planet? These days, it’s an idea that’s looked back on with fond amusement, but Percival Lowell – born in 1855 and thus a contemporary of Louis Moinet – took the idea very seriously. He carried on the work begun by Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli, who thought that the dark marks he had observed on Mars were a series of lakes and canals. This romantic vision of astronomy is the first thing that draws the gaze on the case of the new “Mars” limited edition piece created by Ateliers Louis Moinet.
A satellite tourbillon forges a bond between Alexey Leonov and Louis Moinet Louis Moinet and Alexey Leonov have been drawn together by their twin destinies – the dreams of both having led to them making their mark in history. SpaceWalker is dedicated to Leonov – and a tribute to all those playing their part in the progress of humankind.
Louis Moinet celebrates the Apollo-Soyuz mission that changed the face of the world “The space age may well be a technological saga, but above all it’s the story of individuals achieving the impossible, and in doing so accomplishing giant leaps for humankind as a whole. Skylink is our celebration of that spirit, championed of old by watchmaker and astronomer Louis Moinet himself.”
“Louis Moinet, watchmaker and man of many arts, was above all a humanist. Early on in life, he set out to travel the world and explore its wonders. Two hundred years later, it is an honour to be pursuing this tradition of openness and sharing – and to be dedicating an original creation to a state as exceptional as Singapore. The piece combines our very best Swiss watchmaking knowhow with the ethos of the man himself, now a beacon for the whole world.” Jean-Marie Schaller, CEO & Creative Director, Ateliers Louis Moinet
