Available in a limited edition of just 30 pieces, the Louis Moinet Geograph Australian pays homage to such icons as Captain James Cook, the colouring on the national flag of Australia and the Southern Cross.The Geograph: Australian Edition by Louis Moinet is an elegant yet robust two-pusher automatic chronograph with a second time zone.

The red, white and blue of the dial as well as the star-shaped small seconds hand at 9 o’clock evoke the Australian flag, while six stars engraved on the case-back represent the flag’s Southern Cross constellation.

Engravings of a map and a sailing ship on the lower part of the case-back pay tribute to nautical explorer Captain James Cook, the first European to extensively explore and chart the eastern coastline of Australia.

Louis Moinet creates limited-edition luxury time pieces, taking their lead from the pioneering work by the illustrious 19th century watchmaker of the same name. Louis Moinet’s creations feature cutting-edge technology and high quality materials. Tempograph is the world’s only 10-second retrograde while Astralis features a 24-hour planetarium containing genuine galactic meteorites.
