‘Interstellar’ diamonds, no less :-)
[Press Release] Stardance, The World’s Only Watch with Interstellar Diamonds
Stardance is a mechanical self-winding ladies’ watch. It is distinguished by its exclusive interstellar diamonds, contained in the Enstatite EH3 meteorite. Fragments of this meteorite are finely cut out and crafted in order to depict the moon phases.
The dial is mother-of-pearl and the cosmos is depicted in Aventurine, creating a decidedly sidereal overall effect. Alternating with the nocturnal world is that of daytime, represented by a running seconds display shaped like a sun of which the longest ray indicates the seconds.
The Louis Moinet signature characteristics are to be found in the hands with their “Gouttes de Rosée” (dewdrop) design, as well as the mother-of-pearl dial adorned with “Côtes du Jura”.
The standout feature of the Louis Moinet case is its upper bezel set with 6 cabochon-cut sapphires. The bezel itself is set with 54 VVS Top Wesselton diamonds. The case is made of avant-garde materials, meaning grade 5 polished titanium as well as white ceramics. It measures 35.5mm.
The automatic movement was developed and crafted by Louis Moinet and Concepto. 49 parts were required to create this exclusive additional mechanism complementing an existing caliber.
The rotor combines two universes: that of the night is shown by a disc adorned with a gold-toned moon; while the rays of the sun are portrayed by a special polished and slightly cabochon-shaped part added to the rotor in order to highlight its oscillations.
