This independent company is run by Jean-Marie Schaller and Micaela Bartolucci. The company is named in honor of Louis Monet, the greatest watchmaker who has created quite a number of original watch movements. In Paris Monet studied the watchmaking art, then he left for Rome to enlarge his knowledge in painting and architecture. He headed the “Society for Chronometry” of Paris. He made many drawings and was a creator of the most well-known encyclopedias of watchmaking art  having taken him 20 years. Despite Louis did not found his own company, his contribution to watchmaking was appreciated by people who called their enterprise with his name. Louis Monet's masterpieces are being kept in such museums as Louvre and the Château de Versailles in Paris. The brand produces exclusive mechanical watches having the logo in a form of the heraldic lily, the symbol of French kings. There are another logos engraving on watches: the lion means the design of watches, because the brand design is protected with the international patents. The crossed wrenches of watchmakers mean the watchmaking art. The star means exclusivity and is put only on watches of limited editions made by old drawings. The crescent means that a watch is created in single one.
