Born in France in 1768, the young Louis Moinet was drawn to horology and art, training regularly with a master watchmaker while also receiving drawing lessons from an Italian painter.
His twin passions became his hallmark, which he channeled into true works of horological art. Moinet went on to become one of the greatest watchmakers ever—his inventiveness, passion, and willingness to pass on his wisdom shows his immeasurable contribution to horology.
His spirit lives on thanks to Jean-Marie Schaller who, as founder and creative director of the Louis Moinet brand, revived the prestigious name of the inspirational master watchmaker and carries on its magnificent tradition.
“The master watchmaker Louis Moinet was both an artist and a brilliant horologist. He was one of the most influential watchmakers of all time. I am proud to revive his heritage of ‘mechanical art’, blending it with the exciting possibilities offered by today’s technology.” — Jean-Marie Schaller, Creative Director
A signature feature of Louis Moinet is the use of extremely rare materials, such as tropical fossilized palm wood and dinosaur bone or meteorites from the Moon or Mars.
A fragment of the Sahara 955, the most extraordinary of the meteorites used in Louis Moinet timepieces, can be found in the dial of Astralis. It has also been estimated as 4.6 billion years old, making it the oldest known rock in our solar system.
Those who possess a timepiece bearing the Louis Moinet name find themselves in esteemed company. Owners have included Napoleon; Tsar Alexander I; King George IV of England; Marshal Murat, King of Naples; and American presidents Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe.
“In a watch, you see the brain of the engineer, the heart of the designer, the eye of the artist and the hand of the watchmaker.” — Jean-Marie Schaller, Creative Director
Uniqueness, creative horology, art and design, and exclusivity are at the heart of Louis Moinet creations. All timepieces are either exclusive limited editions or unique pieces.
A limited number of Louis Moinet timepieces are created each year and Eiseman Jewels is proud to be the exclusive dealer in Dallas.
