Swiss replica Louis Moinet loves all things beautiful, unusual and exceptional. On its Mecanograph City watches, the brand was the first to include fragments of lunar meteorites and other rocks from the far-flung corners of the universe. With the Treasures of the World collection the dials are made from rare, fossilized stones of mineral or plant origin, including petrified exotic wood.
Now the two approaches have been combined to create the Jurassic Watch, derived from the Mecanograph family, and the first watch to feature a dial made from Jurassic-era dinosaur bone aged between 145 and 200 million years old. The cheap Omega replica watches is powered by the highly accurate certified Mecanograph chronometer, a proprietary movement has been exclusively developed by Ateliers Louis Moinet.
The dial is made from a genuine fossilized 150-million-year-old dinosaur bone. The caliber features a date window located at 3 o’clock and uses the exclusive Energie Plus process *, unveiled by Louis Moinet earlier this year at Baselworld.
“…We’re working on an extremely rare material – fossilized dinosaur! In addition, just like the meteorites we already work with, this legacy from millions of years ago has come down to us today in excellent condition. Even though it’s 150 million years old, this fossilized dinosaur looks quite contemporary. Its texture recalls that of an abstract canvas; it’s a real honour to be able to work with a material like this.” Jean-Marie Schaller, CEO of Ateliers Louis Moinet.
The production of each dial begins with the choice of the right stone; this needs to be sufficiently dense to be worked on, taking into account its final size and texture. The ensuing handiwork takes over a week and results in a dial thickness of just 0.65 mm.
“…Immediately upon release, the Mecanograph won a prize in the International Chronometry Competition….” explained M. Schaller. “Mr Louis Moinet, not only invented the chronograph, but was also the pioneer of chronometry, measuring sixtieths of a second in 1816. The Mecanograph features a broad dial surface enabling us to be able to display the fossil to maximum effect.”
The color and vein of the precious fossils have benefitted from excellent Omega fake watches craftsmanship, in which the cutting and treatment protect the material itself. The dinosaur bone in question, discovered in North America, has been authenticated by renowned geologist Dr Andreas Stucki in association with the Aathal Dinosaur Museum in Switzerland.
The dinosaur bone is from the family of large herbivores, which includes the Diplodocus. The Diplodocus is one of the most easily recognizable dinosaurs thanks to its highly distinctive shape, featuring both a long neck and a long tail. It was one of the longest dinosaurs on the planet, measuring up to 50 metres with an estimated weight of 50 tonnes!
Chronometer certified movement, 43.5 mm case made from rose gold. Date at 3 o’clock, seconds hand at 9 o’clock on the dial with a concentric Clou de Paris pattern, limited edition of 12 watches.
*“Energie Plus” makes it possible to wind up the replica Omega watches for sale in both directions, with a minimum of excess travel. This optimizes each movement of the rotor, recovering its energy, and winding the movement more effectively. It comprises an automatic system, based on an automatic pawl winding system featuring an elegant spring with a ‘crab claw’ design. Completing the system, a miniature ceramic ball bearing is mounted on the dual-material rotor.
