Geograph Rainforest

Louis Moinet has created another pioneering timepiece with this two-pusher automatic chronograph with second time zone featuring genuine fossilised palm wood.

Forming two beautiful chronograph counter dials, the fossilised palm wood has its origins in an emblematic tree from the tropical forests of Southeast Asia, believed to be 70 million years old.

The rod-like structures within the fossilised palm wood's silicified grain produce amazing ochre and sorrel speckles on an amber background, throwing into stark relief the blued-steel hands of the 30-minute counter at 12 o'clock and the 12-hour counter at 6 o'clock.

The chronograph also includes a central golden seconds hand.

It is not only the fossilised palm wood counters that make this timepiece a true advocate of the Rainforest.

For each watch sold, Louis Moinet will make a substantial donation to the Pulau Banding Foundation, an organisation aiming to preserve the Malaysian tropical forest of Belum-Temengor, one of the oldest in the world.

Completing the Geograph Rainforest's dial are central hour and minute hands; a sun-shaped small seconds with date window at 9 o'clock; and a second time zone indicated by a central serpentine heat-blued steel hand.

Meanwhile, the superb display-back engravings of two endangered species – an orang-utan and a rhinoceros hornbill – remind us of the concerted efforts needed to preserve the tropical rainforest for future generations.

Geograph Rainforest was officially launched in a ceremony graced by the exceptional presence of His Majesty, the King of Malaysia.
