The Jurassic Watch from Louis Monet is beautiful, unusual and exceptional. The watch derived from the Mecanograph family and comes wigh a dial made from Jurassic-era dinosaur bone aged between 145 and 200 years old.
Seriously? Seriously! A dial made from a genuine fossilized 150-million-year-old dinosaur bone. As if the dials made from lunar meteorietes and other rocks from the far-flung corners of the universe, used in the Mecanograph City watches wouldn’t have been enough.
Above all, the watch is powered by the highly accurate certified Mecanograph chronometer, which features a date window located at 3 o’clock and uses the exclusive Engergie Plus process, unveiled by Louis Moinet at the Baselworld 2015.
The Energie Plus makes it possible to wind up the watch in both directions, with a minimum of excess travel. This optimizes each movement of the rotor, recovering its energy and winding the movement more effecitvely.
The dials are only 0.65 mm thick in the end and the handiwork takes over a week to finish. The color and vein of the fossils need excellent craftsmanship.
The chronometer certified movement lies in a 43.5 mm wide case, made from rose gold. Apart from the date window the dial also shows seconds hand at 9 o’clock.
This is a limited edition of 12 watches.
