Mars Mission – A fragment of Mars on your wrist
Louis Moinet offers exclusive real fragments of Mars. This is an extremely rare and precious material, as only 277 Martian meteorites are known to exist worldwide.
The launch of Mars Mission coincides with the 25th anniversary of the Pathfinder mission to Mars: the first to use an astromobile (small mobile robot) on that particular planet. Like Louis Moinet, the Pathfinder mission was a trailblazer and served to develop a better knowledge of the universe through astronomical observations.
The dial – a witness to the conquest of space
The dial pays tribute to the first detailed photos of Mars taken in 1965 by the first Mars flyby probe: Mariner 4. The engraving results from hand-crafted hammering creating pleasing contrasts on the surface of the planet. The finish features two light and dark tones resulting from a light black patina achieved after the dial was copper-plated.
