The Louis Moinet Metropolis watch is a three-hand watch, with an all new “Neo” case and some skeletonization for added depth and dimension. The movement was developed in tandem with Concepto exclusively for Louis Moinet. There is open-working on the dial, as well as on the lugs of the very attractive timepiece. Jean-Marie Schaller, CEO Ateliers Louis Moinet. “Its ethos combines ergonomics with design, and function with style. We’ve broken free of neoclassical conventions and adopted a committed, contemporary approach that’s unlike anything we’ve ever done before.”
Openwork is a big theme of the Metropolis and as such three different sets of openworked displays are featured in the piece: hour markers, the dial, an the lugs andvertical bridges. The sum effect is a three dimensional aspect and layers of visual depth
The Metropolis is powered by the new LM45 caliber and features 48 hour power reserve. It embodies Louis Moinet’s distinctive virtues of creative horology, art and design, and exclusivity. The symbols for these virtues are emblazoned on the movement’s bridge.
The movement’s finishes embody all the noble traditions of fine watchmaking: Côtes de Genève
The case size is a contemporary 43.2 mm and consists of 55 parts. As mentioned, the case is the brand’s new Neo, and is water resistant to 50 meters. The watch is presented on a crocodile strap that comes with a folding clasp decorated with yet another Louis Moinet symbol, the Fleur de Lys.
