Louis Moinet presents its new model, the Jules Verne Instrument III, inspired by the eponymous author’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea novel published in 1869. In this science fiction adventure novel, Jules Verne imagines a protagonist, Captain Nemo, who no longer has any ties with human society from which he has chosen voluntary exile. He forsakes dry land, surviving by sea alone, and sailing the oceans aboard his Nautilus submarine.
Louis Moinet has created a high‐precision instrument for Captain Nemo – a loyal companion to accompany him alongside his various locomotion devices in his many confrontations with known and unknown worlds.
Jules Verne Instrument III is an original and decidedly technological chronograph. It is equipped with an inventive subaquatic‐looking monopusher, as well as an astonishing function indicator (patent pending) inspired by the famous Chadburn telegraph transmitters on historical ships. The dial picks up the signature Louis Moinet “Côtes du Jura” decoration, while the visibility of the function indicator and the chronograph counters is highlighted by milled appliques enhanced with hex screws and coated with a blue and white luminescent substance.
