COSMOPOLIS: the microcosm of the macrocosm
COSMOPOLIS | Last night, the Villa Bartholoni, which serves as Geneva’s History of Science Museum, was transformed into a magnificent setting for a watch that all had wanted to see: the COSMOPOLIS.
Jean-Marie Schaller, Owner and Creative Director of Les Ateliers Louis Moinet, unveiled this exceptional timepiece and with it the concept of the “microcosm of the macrocosm.”
The dial of the COSMOPOLIS displays a fascinating constellation made up of twelve distinctive meteorite fragments. At the heart of this celestial composition lies a rare lunar meteorite surrounded by otherworldly fragments that each tell a story billions of years old. These slivers of history, fragments of eternity, offer a unique fusion of time-space and the watchmaker’s craft, and create an unparalleled work of art: the COSMOPOLIS.
COSMOPOLIS a name that evokes cosmic splendour, the stars and their mysteries, while also representing the city, with its culture and arts. It perfectly embodies the essence of this watch by uniting the fascination with space and the timeless elegance of haute horlogerie. COSMOPOLIS, a timepiece that opens a new chapter in the history of watchmaking, a work of art that is on a new journey throughout the world.
