Louis Moinet is born in Bourges in 1768. Right from the outset, his signature notions are elegance and excellence. He produces an astronomical watch, then, in 1848, publishes his reference work, "Le Traité d'Horlogerie". In 2008, the entrepreneur Jean-Marie Schaller revives the legend by creating "Les Ateliers Louis Moinet". The mission of the brand is to enrich the heritage of the founder. Each watch is either a unique piece or a limited edition.
