Louis Moinet celebrates the anniversary of the U.A.E.

Posted on December 1, 2016 at 10:31 AM by / 0

To celebrate the anniversary of the United Arab Emirates, Ateliers Louis Moinet has gone one better than even a ‘bespoke’ creation, producing an exclusive set featuring a Unique Piece Tourbillon – together with a similarly one-of-a-kind creation by Reuge.

For Jean-Marie Schaller, CEO of Ateliers Louis Moinet, the celebration is an opportunity to offer the Emirates not just a timepiece, but a whole world in which each component part really is absolutely unique. At the centre of the set is a unique piece crafted by Louis Moinet in platinum: the UAE Falcon.

The Falcon will be hand-delivered by the CEO of watch manufacturers Louis Moinet, holder of the Guinness World Records™ certificate for the first Chronograph ever.

A platinum falcon – numbered 01/01
The Arabic word for “falcon” means “purebred bird”. Falcons are especially important in UAE culture and history, and fittingly enough one takes pride of place here, occupying a central location in the timepiece, reigning majestically over the tourbillon. In its claws, the falcon grasps the hour and minute hands.

Within the 47 mm case, an exclusive Louis Moinet manual movement beats at a rhythm of 21,600 vibrations per hour, and boasts a three-day power reserve. The very same movement recently won the prestigious Chronometry Competition finals in the Tourbillon category – leaving little doubt that it is the finest tourbillon in the world.

On the dial, the UAE Falcon is emblazoned with the four emblematic colours of the national flag: black, symbolising victory; white, for its neutrality; green, denoting its fertility; and red, standing for national unity.
