Especially created for women, Sundance stands out as a timepiece whose guiding inspiration has been the discovery of new creative horizons. The main feature of this new collection is its dial that reflects the expertise of Ateliers Louis Moinet in manufacturing extremely complex and highly artistic dials.
Even though this collection comprises 60 watches, each dial is entirely unique thanks to a wholly unprecedented manufacturing method employed by the luxury watch manufacture.
The Sundance dials are redolent with many-hued variations, evocative of the infinite expanse of the Milky Way. Beneath the sapphire crystal front glass, this miniature galaxy features diamond hour markers and two dewdrop hands to indicate hour and minutes. The open worked sun at the centre of the dial marking off the seconds.
The Sundance case is based on the open-style architecture of the “Neo” case, devised by Louis Moinet to house all of its most recent creations. Its main compartment encloses the watch’s automatic mechanism with an avant-garde material: translucent, blue-coloured neoralithe. The case is delicately inserted between two slim, graceful, openwork gold bridges that span the assembly and secure the alligator strap at either end. Louis Moinet has used the space between these bridges to engrave a series of original motifs on the case itself.
These are a faithful reproduction of historical architectural drawings engraved in stone in Bourges (France), as observed by Professor Louis Moinet as he went to the School of Fine Arts, at the turn of the nineteenth century. Ateliers Louis Moinet have reproduced them on the Sundance case, protecting them with the same translucent blue composite used on the four case lugs, each resembling an aerial view of the Earth.
Sundance will be available with jewel settings on the dial (twelve diamonds, one on each hour marker) and bezel, as well as with three concentric rows of diamonds opening towards the outside of the bezel.
