The Louis Moinet has been inspired by Captain Nemo from the Jules Verne novel “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”. Each piece on the back has a Star signifying its part of a Limited Edition. The Moon to mean this is unique and no other watch will be similarly made. The chronograph uses an indicator Start/Stop/Reset inspired by the Chadburn transmitter used in old ships and in this case Nemo's submarine. A date window sits at the 7 o’clock position.
The Dial has the signature Louis Moinet Cotes Du Jura Guilloche. The 47mm case is made of Grade 5 Titanium with a 316L Stainless Steel Bezel, the black lower part is coated in PVD. The movement beats at 28,800 bph, finished in Cotes Du Jura. It has a 48 hour power reserve and was created in collaboration with Concepto in Switzerland. The 24mm natural rubber strap has a double folding clasp made of Grade 5 Titanium and 316L Stainless Steel.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a full set coming with its original Louis Moinet special box and Louis Moinet paperwork for this limited edition watch with matching numbers. The watch also comes with a brand new and unworn leather strap by Louis Moinet. This watch is from 2018 and is in very good worn condition, the watch runs great too.
Another unusual one that I could not say no to! I have known about Louis Moinet for a while and have wanted to experience one, this was the perfect opportunity and I can safely say I am NOT disappointed! Beautiful finishing and great design, even at it’s huge size it is still comfortable on my 6 ¾ inch wrist!
