On its unique way Louis Moinet combined Swiss precision and Singapore soul into new mechanical timepiece. A pair of exclusive limited edition watches were created as a tribute to the history and culture of Singapore on her 52nd birthday.
This limited edition of watches includes only 84 pieces (19 in gold cases and 65 in stainless steel cases) and is endowed with decorative elements which constitute references to the past and to symbols of Singapore, The Lion City.
The black guilloche dial of the watch showcases the Singapore skyline with its most characteristic buildings, such as Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Gardens by the Bay, Art Science Museum and the Singapore Flyer. This artistic portrayal of local architecture has been engraved on the bottom part of the dial and illustrates the vitality and creativity of contemporary Singaporean genius. Over the skyline, you will find a crescent moon accompanied by five brilliant stars, which is in reference to key elements of the Singapore Flag.
The dial is partially open, allowing one to observe each and every beat of the calibre. This represents the passing of time, allowing us to reflect unto every second of Singapore’s independence and the tremendous perseverance and effort it has taken to get us this far.
Equally beautiful on the back is the rotor decorated with a concentric version of the Clou de Paris pattern.
This timepieces will be powered by the LM45 automatic movement, also designed and manufactured by Louis Moinet. The frequency of the balance is 28,800 vph (4Hz) and the movement contains 22 jewels.
New Louis Moinet Singapore Edition has been created by the famous Swiss watch atelier Louis Moinet, in cooperation with Wealth Solutions Singapore- a local branch of the Polish company specialising in delivery and creation of unique collector items, and The Singapore Watch Club – the most important association of timepiece aficionados in Singapore.
