Last King of Egypt Wears Louis Moinet Spiroscope

Sep 27, 2010
The history of Louis Moinet has been highlighted by the development of outstanding horological masterpieces that were owned by important historical personalities, with Napoleon Bonaparte, Czar Alexander I, and American Presidents Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe found on the list.

Nowadays, the list of celebrities fascinated by Louis Moinet watches is enlarged by two more prestigious customers - His Majesty King Fouad Farouk, the last King of Egypt and His Majesty the Sultan of Malaysia. The last King of Egypt stopped his choice at a Spiroscope watch, while the Sultan of Malaysia acquired a Jules Verne chronograph watch.

The Louis Moinet Spiroscope watch enchants the eye by its supreme elegance and sophistication of a hand-crafted dial that allows to drop a glance at the heart of the exclusive mechanical self-winding movement beating inside.

The mechanism, LM04 Caliber, incorporates a 360-degree shaped rotor and is provided with a ruthenium-coated protective shield. The 25-jewel movement is beating at the frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and gives an advantage of a 42-hour power-reserve. It animates the functions of hours, minutes, and central seconds and allows automatic winding in either direction.

The 45mm case of the Spiroscope watch is rendered in polished stainless steel and incorporates a nickel-free case-back, two anti-glare sapphire crystals as well as a unique crown guard system. The case construction is water-resistant down to 30 meters.

The dial of the Louis Moinet celebrity watch is embellished with a Cotes-du-Jura motif. The time is indicated by blued steel or rhodium-plated hands provided with Superluminova coating.

The Louis Moinet Spiroscope watch, limited to 60 pieces and available at the price of 6, 900 US dollars, is presented on a Louisiana alligator leather strap fitted with a folding clasp with Louis Moinet symbol.
