Renowned Swiss watch atelier Louis Moinet unveils an exclusive Singapore Edition luxury watch as a tribute to the history and culture of Singapore on her 52nd birthday. This timepiece was created in cooperation with Wealth Solutions Singapore — a local branch of the Polish company specialising in delivery and creation of unique collector items, and the Singapore Watch Club — the leading association of timepiece aficionados in Singapore.

Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Gardens By The Bay, ArtScience Museum and the Singapore Flyer, all these iconic buildings can be admired on the dial of this unique timepiece. This artistic portrayal of the Singapore skyline with its most characteristic buildings has been engraved on the bottom part of the luxury dial.

This special edition was limited to only 84 pieces (19 in rose gold and 65 in steel) and is endowed with decorative elements constituting references to iconic symbols of Singapore – The Lion City.

Watches are available in original Louis Moinet stainless steel and 18k rose gold Neo cases. This timepiece will be powered by the LM45 automatic movement, also designed and manufactured by Louis Moinet. The frequency of the balance is 28,800 vph (4Hz) and the movement contains 22 jewels.

“I first came to Singapore on her National Day a few years back, as I was working on another special edition watch at that time. The project was a tribute to Polish freedom fighting in the 19th century, which led me to consider Singapore’s path to independence. That’s how the idea for this collaboration was conceived,” said Pawel Morozowicz, founder and Chief Officer of Wealth Solutions Singapore.

Over the skyline, you will find a crescent moon accompanied by five brilliant stars, which is in reference to key elements of the Singapore Flag.

The dial is partially open, allowing one to observe each and every beat of the calibre. This represents the passing of time.
