Louis Moinet - Jules Verne Instrument III



The inspiration behind Louis Moinet's Jules Verne Instrument III is Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, the classic novel by 19th century French author Jules Verne, whom many consider to be the father of science fiction. The novel's hero Captain Nemo chooses voluntary exile from human society to sail the oceans aboard his Nautilus submarine.

The Jules Verne Instrument III is the perfect precision instrument for Captain Nemo - and who better to explain why than Jean-Michel Verne, a direct descendant of Jules Verne.

Jean-Michel says: "Jules Verne Instrument III offers an inventive monopusher with an aquatic look to it. Its case is made from gold and titanium or titanium and stainless steel, with chapter rings on the dial contrasting superbly against the dark grey guilloched dial. The monopusher set into the crown ensures that activating the chronograph functionality is quick and simple."

"The materials used are at the cutting edge of technology: Grade 5 Titanium, the only grade conducive to highquality polishing, makes for a high-tech, lightweight case. The rubber strap, soft, comfortable and waterproof is the perfect choice for such an aquatically-inspired timepiece."
