L’essentiel est de ne pas s’écarter du vrai

“It is essential not to depart from truth”

Louis Moinet

Continuing and preserving Louis Moinet’s historical heritage, Louis Moinet is proud to count a number of today’s celebrities among their prestigious clientele, such as the King of Malaysia, among others.

For Jean-Marie Schaller, CEO and Creative Director, the responsibility of reviving the Louis Moinet name and of heading the brand today is a natural vocation:

“Watchmaking has always been in my blood. Coming from the Jura Mountains, the world surrounding me revolved around one thing: Horology.
I grew up knowing that a watch is no ordinary object: It is a cultural testimony, a legacy inherited from a generation of craftsmen.
In a watch, you see the brain of the engineer, the heart of the designer, the eye of the artist and the hand of the watchmaker.
Indeed, the watch is an objet d’art in harmony with the real values we harbour inside ourselves as human beings.
The master watchmaker Louis Moinet was both an artist and a brilliant horologist. He was one of the most influential watchmakers of all time.
I am proud to revive his heritage of ‘mechanical art’, blending it with the exciting possibilities offered by today’s technology”.

Louis Moinet is proud to play its part in the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH), and thereby encourage its remarkable initiatives to promote, enhance and maintain worldwide excellence in watchmaking.
