“Treasures of the World” Australian Opal

The Louis Moinet world tour continues! Its new concept of unique “Treasures of the World” models now takes us to Australia. In association with Daniel Haas, world-famous specialist and artisan in the field of precious stones, Jean-Marie Schaller travelled the globe looking for the finest gems. They now offer a journey to the land of wallabies with the Vertalis Tourbillon Australian Opal watch featuring a dial adorned with the famous stone with its fiery colours and iridescent sparkle. Sourced directly from the Olympic mine, this ultra-rare crystal opal boasts some truly extraordinary reflections. Presented in a white gold case with a bezel set with 56 baguette-cut diamonds, this one-of-a-kind model associates the distinctive vibration of opal with the mechanical beauty of the tourbillon. An outstanding exclusive model from Louis Moinet.
