Louis Moinet Covers Watch Journal

Mar 11, 2015

This March, Louis Moinet graces the cover of Watch Journal’s Explorer Issue. King Jewelers is proud to be South Florida’s authorized Louis Moinet retailer!

Louis Moinet truly left his mark on the watch scene in 1816 when he invented the world’s first chronograph (although he called it a “compteur de tierces.”) After such an impressive accomplishment, Moinet became friends and roommates with renowned watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet (creator of another prestigious brand which is shown on the back cover of this same magazine.)

Louis Moinet has consistently been at the forefront of timepiece innovation, and in keeping with that trend, created the 20-Second Retrograde that is shown on the cover. The intricate design features 260 parts and a multitude of small, eye-catching details. The small hour and minute dial is white with blued-steel dewdrop hands. The rest of the dial is open, allowing you to see the movement in action. Features include a 20 second retrograde function (displayed via the blued-steel central hand) and a maximum 48-hour power reserve when fully wound.
