Louis Moinet has designed a range of limited edition watches that celebrate the history and tradition of Singapore.
The watches are inspired by the eponymous Louis Moinet’s early life, when he travelled the world and experienced the warmth and openness of the people of Singapore.
“Louis Moinet, watchmaker and man of many arts, was above all a humanist. Early on in life, he set out to travel the world and explore its wonders. Two hundred years later, it is an honour to be pursuing this tradition of openness and sharing – and to be dedicating an original creation to a state as exceptional as Singapore. The piece combines our very best Swiss watchmaking know how with the ethos of the man himself, now a beacon for the whole world.” says Jean-Marie Schaller, CEO and creative director, Ateliers Louis Moinet.
The Louis Moinet Singapore Edition watch is a mechanical timepiece that sets out to fuse Swiss precision with Singaporean soul.
The watch is made of 19 gold components and 65 in stainless steel; a subtle nod toward 1965, the year of Singapore’s independence.
The face is decorated with a golden depiction of the Singapore skyline.
Over the skyline, you see the moon facing five small stars, which is reference to the flag of Singapore.
The watches are available in stainless steel and 18ct rose gold cases housing an LM45 automatic movement, designed and manufactured by Louis Moinet.
