Louis Moinet UAE Falcon

The Louis Moinet UAE Falcon timepiece was unveiled as an exclusive feature at the Dubai Watch Week, which was held from 18 to 22 October 2015. In this very first edition of the Dubai Watch Week, Louis Moinet, as one of the first exhibitors, developed a unique timepiece made from platinum: the UAE Falcon.
The falcon is of major importance in both the history and the culture of the United Arab Emirates. Its name means “purebred bird” in Arabic, and it forms an integral part of the daily life of Emiratis – not least because it features on all their banknotes.

The same bird of prey also takes centre stage in this watch, sitting majestically atop the tourbillon, grasping the hours and minutes hands between its claws. In the 47mm case, an original Louis Moinet manual movement beats at a rhythm of 21,600 vibrations per hour, and boasts a guaranteed three-day power reserve. The dial of the UAE Falcon is emblazoned with the four iconic colours of the United Arab Emirates flag: black, symbolizing the country’s wealth of oil reserves; white, for its neutrality; green, for its rich potential; and red, symbolizing the unity of the State.
