The world-renowned watchmaker Louis Moinet is proud to present its new brainchild, the Jules Verne Instrument 1 watch. Issued in a very limited number, this timepiece includes two revolutionary features, which really bring it to the forefront.
The first innovation is a special patent-pending mechanism, developed for starting and stopping a chronograph. It ensures absolute security when using the chronograph.
The second progressive feature is represented by a veritable piece of lunar rock, found at the side of the case at 9 o’clock position. In fact, this alluring model is the most vivacious incarnation of Jules Verne’s 1865 novel From the Earth to the Moon.
The Jules Verne Instrument 1 watch is powered by a self-winding movement, embellished with 25 rubies. The movement runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a 44-hour power reserve. The watch’s functionality includes hours, minutes, seconds, a date, a chronograph, as well as a second time zone.
All the technical surprises are incorporated into the case, which is manufactured from 18K (5 N) pink gold, grade 5 titanium and 316L steel.
The timepiece case embraces an attractive dial, performed in silver or black. It is adorned with Cotes du Jura pattern and completed with four pink gold applique sub-dials: 12-hour, 30-minute, date and second time zone, located at 6, 12, 3 and 9 o’clock correspondingly.
Fitting the Louis Moinet Jules Verne Instrument 1 watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is a hand-stitched crocodile leather strap, graced with carbon finishing.
