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.
SIDERALIS OPENS A WHOLE NEW WINDOW ON THE HEAVENS Sideralis is a heavenly theatre in which many different variations can come into their own. This red aventurine version offers outstanding aesthetic consistency, featuring a pink gold case and showcasing Louis Moinet’s double tourbillon in all its majesty. Sideralis boasts a distinctive red aventurine caseback. Aventurine is the product of an experiment by a seventeenth-century glass worker, who dipped copper flakes into molten glass. The constellation of sparkling particles produced a beautiful effect – and aventurine was born. Red aventurine, however, is far less well-known than its blue counterpart. That makes it especially appropriate for this very limited edition of eight Sideralis watches. Its reddish-brown hues form an exceptional heavenly background, hand-painted to resemble the outer reaches of the kind of distant galaxy Louis Moinet himself loved to explore during his astronomical observations.
METROPOLIS TAKES ON TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY ARCHITECTURE - IN BLACK & RED OR MAGIC BLUE Metropolis, the new creation by Ateliers Louis Moinet, is back in two new versions – one combining red and black, the other in “Magic Blue”. The urban, architectural ethos of the timepiece is further enhanced by a contemporary sparkle unlike anything ever seen before from Louis Moinet. “The success of a creation like Metropolis depends on just two things: first of all, making sure it is true to the brand’s DNA; and secondly, ensuring that it is coherent from start to finish, in terms of both form and essence. These have been our twin guiding principles for these two new limited editions of Metropolis. On the one hand, the timepieces exude the Louis Moinet spirit, with a particular emphasis on their styling and individual identity: they must be entirely different from any rival timepiece. At the same time, they are entirely self-consistent: Metropolis is our horological take on urban architecture. Moving on from our classical approach, here we’ve adopted an edgier, more modern urban style – in just the same way as some of today’s great cities are so good at developing without rejecting their heritage.”
“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
The most prestigious version of Memoris is back – Red Eclipse. Now boasting a rose gold case and fully hand-engraved, with a lunar eclipse theme, this new interpretation wonderfully offsets the dominant blue of the astral micro-painting that adorns the dial.
