Louis Moinet’s tribute to Big Apple skyline is literally an out of this world affair. New York City “the capital of the world” and the biggest city in the US gets the first model of the Louis Moinet Meconograph City Limited Edition, the Meconograph New York. The dial of the watch highlights New York City landscape with its tall skyscrapers that include 541 meter high One World Trade Center, Empire State Building, Chrysler Building and the Brooklyn Bridge.

Louis Moinet claims this is the only meteorite to officially have the given name New York, a fact confirmed by the Meteoritical Society.The dual faced dial also boasts Louis Moinet’s signature Gouttes de Rosée hour and second hands, and small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock. Movement is visible from the front on the left side.
