The backstory

A journey into infinity

This modern timepiece aims to combine the visionary talent of the inventor of the chronograph and high frequency with contemporary architectural work.

The dial

Unveiling the magical mechanism

The dial has an opening between 8 o'clock and 12 o'clock, revealing each beat of its exclusive calibre including the escapement operating at a rate of 28,800 vibrations/hour, as well as the off-centre seconds hand. Everything is arranged to ensure that the eye loses nothing of intricate workings of this MOON GIBEON watch.

Representing an essential stylistic element in this creation, the hour-markers involve an extremely sophisticated manufacture process. Each features three variously shaped facets designed to make the light dance over them. The flank features a diamond and satin-finished part to endow the dial with a deep radiance. In their center, the three-dimensional indexes feature white lacquer, creating a striking contrast with the deep black of the dial. The real accomplishment was to keep them suspended above the void, with the clear intention of creating a strong perspective. This virtuoso craftsmanship enables them to be linked to a central ring and to the inner bezel ring.

Gibeon meteorite

This celestial object that fell in Namibia in prehistoric times is named after the nearest town called Gibeon. This meteorite is famous for the distinctive "Widmanstätten pattern", a unique feature of extraterrestrial rocks containing iron. Placed at the centre of the dial, the Gibeon meteorite has been tinted in midnight blue, evoking the mystery of the universe.

Moon meteorite

An authentic lunar meteorite fragment

This limited edition offers exclusive, genuine fragments from the Moon, an extremely rare and precious material with only 371 recorded lunar meteorites in the world. 

This meteorite travelled more than 400,000 kilometres through intersidereal space before being captured by Earth’s gravity and landing in the Dhofar Desert in Oman.

Today, it has been transformed into an objet d’art. First sculpted, it was then protected by a blue anodised aluminium capsule, with its base evoking a starry night.

The self-winding calibre

The finishing of the movement is based on the noble traditions of fine watchmaking: Côtes de Genève, diamond-polished chamfers, circular satin-finished wheels, circular graining. The sapphire caseback reveals the movements of the rotor mounted on ball bearings. The Clous de Paris motif dear to Louis Moinet in the 19th century has been reinterpreted in a concentric version, giving an impression of movement.

The Neo case

A watch industry trailblazer

The MOON GIBEON case has been christened Neo, as its novel technical solutions have created a silhouette that is unprecedented in watchmaking. Everything is built around two vertical bridges that cross the piece to accommodate the strap at each end of their openworked lugs. These bridges enclose the movement container, which is dominated by the six-screw bezel, one of Louis Moinet's trademarks.

Its alligator leather strap is secured by a folding clasp adorned with the curved Fleur de Lys, the symbol of Louis Moinet.
