Louis Moinet AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHT DAYS - Watches & Wonders 2024 #WatchesandWonders2024
By SENATUS Editor | 8 April 2024

Louis Moinet presents AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHT DAYSm a contemporary version of the famous odyssey imagined by Jules Verne, revisited by Jean-Marie Schaller and sublimated by the art and excellence of watchmaking.

Paris, New York, San Francisco, Tokyo, Abu Dhabi -- Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, 8 magnificent metropolises captured in eight horological works of art, in which each city is a living canvas limned by thousands of human stories, and each reveals itself to be a place where boundless energy boils a cauldron blending art, culture, architecture, and technology. It is this rich and complex alchemy that inspired Jean-Marie Schaller to create these eight horological masterpieces.

To create the dials, Les Ateliers Louis Moinet tapped the specialised skills of GVA Cadrans. This company’s dial-makers have unique expertise in métiers d'art, be that fine miniature painting, precise hand-engraving, the delicate art of marquetry, or making complex jigsaw puzzle dials.

The exceptional beauty of these eight dials has to do with the originality of the materials chosen, ranging from rock crystal to aventurine, from genuine fragments of history to high-tech materials. Each of these elements is a genuine treasure that gives these works their unique character.

With the dynamism of the big cities acting as a backdrop, AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHT DAYS invites us to contemplate and celebrate our world’s great metropolises through the art of watchmaking.
