Louis Moinet Jules Verne Tourbillon “To the Moon”

With the new Jules Verne Tourbillon “To the Moon” featuring a lunar meteorite, Swiss luxury watch brand Louis Moinet presents a trilogy of exotic haute horlogerie creations.

The JULES VERNE tourbillons were designed to be personalised. At the centre of the dial is a space that allows the future owner to select a unique stone disc cut from either a lunar meteorite, an opal, or a lapis lazuli. Only eight discs of each material, handcrafted and revealing a unique pattern, will be offered.

The central disc of these JULES VERNE tourbillons will be set in a peripheral guilloché. This rigorous craft involves carefully producing enchanting motifs by engraving gentle grooves on a metallic surface. The guillocheur then applies a translucid varnish to the surface, which adds depth and brilliance to the decoration.

Eight individual fragments of lunar meteorite provide a unique option for making the watch one of a kind. Indeed, each stone slice unveils a mysterious marbled structure that creates a special relationship with the Moon. The guilloché pattern surrounding the meteorite consists of regular arches coated in a green, translucid varnish.

The JULES VERNE tourbillons feature an off-centre flying tourbillon. The hand-wound mechanical movement with a double barrel spring delivers a power reserve of ninety-six hours.

The watch has a 5N, 18-ct, rose-gold case with a diameter of 40 millimetres and flowing and taut lines. The domed sapphire crystal gives a full view of the tourbillon and many other fascinating details of the dial. The open-worked lugs underscore the integration of the strap.
