Louis Moinet Jules Verne Instrument III Watch
Have you ever seen something so beautiful? For 10k, it better be!
The dial itself is pretty handsome with Louis Moinet’s special wiggly machine engraving. They have a name for it that I forgot. So I will stick with "wiggly sunburst." Nice and elegant name like the Swiss want it right? The hands on the dial could be a bit longer, and personally I would have ditched the skeletonization in favor of more lume.
Using a base Swiss ETA 7750 automatic chronograph, Louis Moinet transforms it into their caliber LM30 automatic movement. There is a lot of work that went into the movement including new bridges, a special custom rotor, and lots of other little details. As I mentioned, the chronograph was turned into a monopusher chrono, with the chadburn style function selector on the dial. This isn’t the first time I have seen something like this – and it isn’t really a new function, but it is cool to have. I further like the fonts used on the dial.
