Meisterstück Around the World in 80 Days

Fascinated by the evolving transport possibilities of the Victorian era, Jules Verne wrote Around the World in Eighty Days in 1872, and it was translated into English in 1973. In the novel, Phileas Fogg bets his entire fortune that he can depart from London by train at 8.45 pm on 2 October, travel the world via Suez, Bombay, Hong Kong, Yokohama, San Francisco, New York, and finish in the same place, at the same time, on 21 December. Jumping from steamers to trains – and at one point, an elephant – Fogg proves that almost anything is possible when one’s mind is set on something.

PHILEAS FOGG: A True Mark Maker of the Victorian Era. The new Meisterstück Around The World in 80 Days Le Grand & Classique brings to life fantastical story of Phileas Fogg’s circumnavigation of the world. Reflecting Fogg’s journey across vast stretches of water by steamboat, the cap and barrel are made of blue precious resin with an engraved wave pattern. Fogg’s favourite pastime while aboard steamboats, playing Whist, is also memorialised by the decorative card suit symbols.
