Inspired by Jules Verne’s fascinating novel “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”, published back in 1869, Louis Monet created an outstanding luxury watch for men. Called the Jules Verne Instrument III, the timepiece comes in two versions: with an 18-carat rose gold and titanium case, or a stainless steel and titanium one. Its case back, engraved with individual Louis Monet markings and number, is secured with seven hex screws. The sapphire crystal features an anti reflection coating, and the watch itself is water resistant to 50 meters.
The timepiece is powered by a Swiss automatic mono-pusher in-house caliber LM30 with 28,800 vibrations per hour, and 27 jewels. It has a 48-hour power reserve and several different functions. These include a start-stop-reset function, a 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock, central 60-second chronograph seconds, a date window at 7 o’clock, and a central hours and minutes with small seconds positioned at 9 o’clock. The strap is made of rubber and features a double folding clasp.
Only 365 pieces will ever be created.
