Louis Moinet Only Mexico
The brand has created a unique timepiece in honour of mexican history.
‘Only Mexico’ is a unique piece that pays tribute to roots of Mexican culture. Ateliers Louis Moinet gathered information and sought out the most typical materials of the country – and then blended them together in this creation. One key highlight is the presence of the oldest-known material in the world, Allende meteorite, found in the State of Chihuahua.

‘Only Mexico’ is fitted with Louis Moinet’s mechanical tourbillon calibre LM35. This won the gold medal at the most recent International Chronometry Competition – and beats at a rhythm of 21’600 vibrations per hour and has a 72-hour power reserve.
Louis Moinet’s 45.4mm NEO case, cut from polished, satin-effect 5N rose gold, accentuates the imposing character of the piece. It owes its silhouette to the application of a large number of brand-new technologies.
Each component of the design reflects Mexico’s very special culture and history: the dial depicts the Sun Stone, iconic works in Aztec art sculpted in a single block of olivine basalt lava and describing how the World was formed.

Dial edge refers to the Allende meteorite (dark-coloured) which reflects the origin of time. In the centre of the dial centre, the Toluca iron meteorite has been given a blue treatment, making it truly resplendent.

The case represents some Pre-Columbian geometric friezes which would symbolize the image of the Feathered Serpent. Finally, case lugs refer to the Maya deity Chaahk, rain god and protector of the harvests.
