Limited Edition Louis Moinet Jules Verne Instrument III Watch
One of the most renowned watchmakers in the world, Louis Moinet, revealed his latest creation today. The Jules Verne Instrument III is actually a symbol that represents the power of ideas, ideas that belong to a single name. It honors Jules Verne’s novel “Twenty thousand leagues under the sea”, published in 1869.
Within the novel, Captain Nemo, the main character, has cut its ties with the human society, choosing to survive under the sea, alone, cruising the depths of the worldwide oceans with his submarine – Nautilus. The case of the watch measures 45.5 mm x 16.5 mm, with 24 mm lugs.
It’s available in two options, one made of 18-carat rose gold and titanium, the other of stainless steel and titanium. The sapphire crystal is coated in anti-reflective materials. Resisting to depths of up to 50 meters, the case is screwed with 7 individual hex screws and engraved with its own individual production number, being part of a limited edition series, plus the particular Louis Monet markings. The strapping consists of natural black rubber material, with a double folding clasp.
Inside, the timepiece features a Swiss automatic mono-pusher Louis Moinet LM30, with which only Moinet’s watches are endowed. The movement boasts 27 jewels, 28,800 vibes per hour and a power reserve of up to 48 hours. There’s also the Louis Moinet-designed open-worked rotor mounted on ball bearings to be mentioned.
In terms of accessibility, the watch includes Start-Stop-Reset function indicator, a central 60-second chronograph seconds, 30-minute chronograph counter at the 3 o’clock position, central hours and minutes with small seconds at the 9 o’clock position, date window at 7 o’clock and a function indicator inspired from a Chadburn telegraph transmitter.
This exquisite timepiece will only be fabricated in a limited edition series of 365 pieces, while the probable prices will fit the reputation, design and quality of Louis Moinet timekeepers.
