Louis Moinet Black Gold Derrick: A new take on an old classic
Louis Moinet Black Gold Derrick: A new take on an old classic

Dubai, UAE, February 19, 2017:  The new-look Derrick Tourbillon from Louis Moinet is creating waves in the  watchmaking world. The Black Gold Derrick proudly shows off openwork mechanical parts of the movement and the new version further enhances the technology involved in its extraordinary mechanism. The Black Gold Derrick picks up the watchmaking tale where Louis Moinet left off three years ago with the Derrick Tourbillon. 

Black gold watchmaking
The original spirit of the piece, redolent of the world of oil, remains intact. The watch’s entire movement represents the drilling process. A drive shaft sits on the right of the dial, between 2 and 4 o’clock. Thispowers a long articulated arm, known as the walking beam, between 10 and 2 o’clock. At its left-hand end is the oblong-shaped ‘head’, the most striking visual characteristic of a derrick. 

The circuit naturally ends with a barrel at 9 o’clock, made from titanium and symbolising successful extraction. It too is in constant rotation: Louis Moinet has dedicated it to marking the seconds, read off at the bottom of the barrel, on a red engraved seconds track. The rotating barrel is also engraved with Louis Moinet’s name, atop its iconic fleur-de-lis motif.

Exclusive developments
Echoing the black gold depicted as running through the watch, the bridges are made from black PVD. Created exclusively for the Black Gold Derrick, they are open-worked, so as to give pride of place to the visual effect of the going train. 

The plate is also completely new, as is the barrel cover. This now offers a view from above of the spring, whilst raised engraving on the minimalist-style cover proudly displays the 72-hour power reserve. 

Watchmaking ethos
The Black Gold Derrick is imbued with the spirit of fine watchmaking. The time is displayed by two central rhodium-plated hands, regulated by a tourbillon escapement at 6 o’clock. The bridges and their many acute angles are all hand-finished, featuring pearled decor on the plate and the derrick bridge, and fine lines on the other bridges.

The assembly is housed in a new white gold case by Louis Moinet, dubbed NEO. Premiered worldwide at Baselworld, it embodies a noteworthy step by the Ateliers towards a more dynamic, contemporary style. The NEO case’s original, contemporary design includes open-work lugs; in a fine watchmaking flourish, these sport black zircontips. In addition to open-work lugs, the sides have beensculpted, and the crown has also been modernised. This technical assembly, with over 45 parts, is topped by asix-screw bezel, now one of Louis Moinet’s stylistic hallmarks. 

The Black Gold Derrick comes in a strictly limited edition of 28 pieces.
