Louis Moinet - Louis Moinet flies to the moon for Only Watch

Louis Moinet Louis Moinet flies to the moon for Only Watch

For its first contribution to Only Watch, Louis Moinet has travelled 380,000 km to help offer children a brighter future.

For its first-ever participation in the Only Watch biennial charity auction, Louis Moinet has reached high... as high as the moon in fact. Known for its use of extraterrestrial materials, the brand has incorporated fragments of lunar meteorites on the gitl dial, which has been hand punched to form individual craters that house the precious lunar fragments. An aperture on the left-hand side  of the dial reveals the beating heart of the LM31 in-house movement, with a small seconds hand at 9 o'clock superimposed above the escapement along with a smoked sapphire crystal counter.

On the back side of the 43.2mm stainless-steel case, a sapphire crystal case back reveals the self-winding movement in its entirety. As another first for Louis Moinet, a fragment of lunar meteorite has also been added to the decorated oscillating mass.
