The QATAR Tourbillon presents two fragments of the one and only meteorite ever found in Qatar, finely inlaid into a hand-engraved dial depicting two bent swords and sand dunes, a tribute to Qatar.
According to the Meteoritical Society, the meteorite's official name is Qatar 001. It originated from the asteroid belt situated between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, and travelled more than 260 million kilometres before landing in the area of Jariyan al Batnah.
Luc Labenne, the highly-regarded meteorite hunter of international renown, says of it: 'It is a chondrite type H5, very rich in metal and showing visible chondrules- distinctive round grains.'
This is a world first and an exclusive model, since no other meteorite has ever been found in Qatar. Louis Moinet has acquired this precious meteorite to turn it into horological art.
Jean-Marie Schaller, Louis Moinet CEO and Creative Director, says: 'Louis Moinet is one of the most important names in watchmaking and we are especially proud to pay a tribute to the State of Qatar, through the purest art of watchmaking.
'The Qatar Tourbillon features the essence of this wonderful Middle Eastern country: A hand-engraved applique around the periphery of the dial, depicting sand dunes, and two Qatari bent swords. It also features the oldest known fossil on earth, three-billion-year-old red stromatolite, which is found in the centre of the dial, between the tourbillon at 6 o'clock and the visible mainspring at 12 o'clock.'
The QATAR Tourbillon is presented in an exceptional 18K white gold case composed of 59 different components and equipped with the Louis Moinet signature crown guard. The latter invention consists of an independent stem integrated within a watertight system and held with a plate secured by four screws. It represents a major advantage in facilitating servicing, compared to traditionally soldered stems.
The view through the QATAR Tourbillon display-back is almost as spectacular as the dial side, with the octopus spring' of the winding and setting mechanism taking centre stage. This ingenious component is effectively three springs in one- pull-out piece spring, lever spring and click spring- all radiating from the centre like the swirling legs of an octopus. The movement plate is engraved with Louis Moinet's 'Cotes du Jura' motif.
