LOUIS MOINET

Plaza Watch International - - Display Case -

As an­niver­saries go, the 185th is not the most usual one to com­mem­o­rate, but Jules Verne was a writer of un­usual skill and so if Louis Monet wants to cel­e­brate the 185th an­niver­sary of the day he was born (in Nantes on Fe­bru­ary 8, 1828) so be it. On that day Louis Monet was a 60-year-old watch­maker though the com­pany that bears his name was a youth­ful 22- year- old ven­ture. The in­spi­ra­tion for the Jules Verne In­stru­ment III is Twenty Thou­sand Leagues Un­der the Sea, and the watch has been cre­ated to look like the sort of thing Cap­tain Nemo might wear with strong colours, a bold ap­per­ance and a glass back re­veal­ing the me­chan­i­cal bril­liance in­side­. Price: 13,800–17,900 eu­ros
