Representing the perfect union of man and nature, the conquest of fire (around 500,000 BC) was a major milestone in the history of human beings. Louis Moinet presents HEAT, an 18-carat rose gold tourbillon watch as a tribute to the conquest of fire.
Its dial boasts a skull engraving of an Australopithecus, one of the first species of humankind, dating back more than four million years. Made of rose-cut rubies, the glowing red eyes of the skull overlooks an engraving decorated with miniature paintings that symbolise the first flames mastered by man. The base is made of a natural stone, red pietersite, which also embodies the dancing of incandescent flames.
The Louis Moinet HEAT watch houses the LM Calibre 35, an award-winning high precision manual-winding tourbillon movement with a power reserve of 72 hours.
