Louis Moinet launches Geograph: Australian Edition

Posted by hellensmith on February 12th, 2013

One of the greatest watchmakers of all times – Louis Moinet is now an exclusive watch brand in Switzerland – known for its high-end timepieces. Usually, these timepieces are either exclusive limited editions or unique pieces, which make them even more desired by watch lovers. The words that describe best the brand are: art and design, uniqueness, creative horology, and exclusivity. This year the exclusive brand launched a very special limited edition called Geograph: Australian Edition the occasion being the 225th anniversary of Australia Day celebration. Apart from the amazing design, what sets this collection apart is the elegant two-pusher automatic chronograph with a second time zone.

Australia Day, celebrated on 26th of January 2013 was a very special day for Louis Moinet brand and its target public as it marked the launching of a very special limited edition that includes 30 valuable pieces paying tribute to some of the most famous Australian icons: Captain James Cook, the Southern Cross and the colours of the national flag. The wonderful works of art feature second time zone indicated by serpentine hand, hours and minutes indicated by central Gouttes de Rosée hands and red, white and blue dials that evoke the Australian flag. Moreover, the lower part of the case-back includes engravings of a map and a sailing ship, which is a very innovative way of paying tribute to explorer and Captain James Cook. Even the blue strap is beautifully crafted from Louisiana alligator leather with alligator lining, all hand-sewn.

In case you didn’t know, Louis Moinet received the “Red Dot: Best of the Best 2012” award in April for another prestigious collection -- Geograph Rainforest. Meeting the highest criteria in terms of quality, innovation and emotional appeal, this collection sets the brand apart once again and puts Moinet at the forefront of design. What is even more interesting is that a very small number of watch models – fewer that ten – have earned the Red Dot award since this distinction was created, almost 6 decades ago. The Geograph Rainforest collection features a timepiece with two-pusher automatic chronograph featuring genuine fossilised palm wood, which has its origins in a very old tree from the tropical forests of Southeast Asia, believed to be 70 million years old. This limited collection includes 120 pieces. We invite you to visit their website to view their entire list of limited editions collections as well as the impressive extraordinary pieces collection. Additionally, the website features the list of retailers and distributors working with the famous brand around the world, in case you want to acquire one of the amazing pieces featured in their collections.

Australia Day is considered to be the biggest annual civic event on the continent, celebrated in communities and cities around the nation. Also called Foundation Day or Invasion Day, this event commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove and the proclamation of British sovereignty in that part of the continent.
