Insiders reveal that Louis Moinet has published certain sketches of a twin-barrel watch way back in 1848, and now they have developed a timepiece based on those patterns. We quite like that the company values ideation and does not dump creativity in the bin, even after so many years. The new watch keeps in tune with the times. It has a 120-hour power reserve, which is three times more than a normal watch. You can see the power reserves indicated on the dial. The retrograde date displays are impressive.
The balance is semi-openworked, which is a rather original concept, and it looks stunning in a new rectagular frame. Among other features, the visible balance is protected by a cock just like they did way back in the 18th century. The barrel have several Louis Moinet logo engravings. The caseback is secured with 4 screws while the dial comes in theree options – silver, charcoal and old rose.
The timepiece has the signature ‘Côtes du Jura’ ® and six applied zones. We think it is a wonderful compilation of the original design of 1848 with a touch of the contemporary. The hands are rhodium-plated and further coared with Superluminova in linden-tree color.
