To support the Only Watch 2023 charity auction, Louis Moinet has presented the unique ART-TECH timepiece featuring a dial cut from a microelectronic silicon wafer. This unique piece also boasts a flying tourbillon with off-centre cage at 6 o’clock.
Silicon is an innovative material linked with technological advances, notably in medicine. The silicon wafer with its etched microelectronic circuits makes for a very special dial design. The clear-cut, geometrical details of the microcircuits, which are highlighted by the optical and reflecting qualities of the wafers, allow light and reflections to play with remarkable intensity.
Each angle of vision makes for a dynamic and changing visual experience. The surface of the silicon interacts with light in different ways depending on its orientation. Thus, the watch comes alive with the various reflections, flashes, and plays of light.
The hand-wound movement is equipped with a double barrel, producing a power reserve of ninety-six hours.
The Louis Moinet ART-TECH Only Watch 2023 has a 40-millimetre case made of polished and satinated grade 5 titanium. The curves of the case are fluid and tightly drawn. The sapphire crystal dome highlights the geometrical motifs of the dial. The open-worked lugs perfectly emphasise the smooth integration of the bracelet.
