Louis Moinet Ad Astra

With the Ad Astra timepiece (Latin for ‘to the stars’), we embark on one of those intergalactic journeys that Louis Moinet is uniquely qualified to create.


d Astra, the Latin expression for ‘to the stars’, is an invitation to embark on an intergalactic journey. A purple titanium spaceship and a blue planet come to life in offering a unique experience.

The former, with its 13.59 mm diameter, is embodied by an oversized tourbillon at 12 o’clock. The latter, represented by a blue sapphire, boasts an exceptional 3.92 mm diameter (featuring 16 sides and 208 facets) and gravitates opposite the tourbillon, thus providing pleasing visual counterbalance.

These two elements are suspended above a 1.8 mm opaque black titanium dial. The high-tech case is also entirely made of “Full Black” and “Moinet Blue” titanium.

Avant-garde technical solutions have been developed to create an original design based on two openworked bridges framing the movement container radiating the same flamboyant “Moinet Blue” shade.

This new experience, in an eight-piece limited edition. is no less impressive than the independent brand’s previous space expeditions.
