Julio Iglesias receives Louis Moinet unique piece
Legendary Spanish singer Julio Iglesias was presented with a one-of-a-kind version of Louis Moinet’s Geograph Rainforest by well-known watch collector Dr Bernard Cheong during a recent soirée in Kuala Lumpur.
The remarkable timepiece was created by Louis Moinet especially for Mr Iglesias, who wowed attendees with a special singing performance.
Geograph Rainforest is a two-pusher automatic chronograph with second time zone featuring two beautiful chronograph counter dials made from genuine fossilised palm wood from south-west Asia, estimated to be 70 million years old.
Dr Cheong, from Singapore, has been keen to champion this exceptional creation dedicated to preserving the Malaysian tropical forest. Indeed, for each Geograph Rainforest that has been sold, Louis Moinet has made 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.
