The Legacy of Time

{The company honors the memory of Louis Moinet (1768-1853): watchmaker, designer of the chronograph certificate (1816), and pioneer in high frequency use (216,000 vibrations per hour).}

In honor of the memory of its founder, and 200 years after its inception, atelier Louis Moinet reveals a visionary creation named Memoris, where the chronograph becomes the central component of the watch, which is the first chronograph-watch in watchmaking history. A guiding principle: forget the past and start from scratch, according to Jean-Marie Schaller, the company’s CEO: “Our starting point was the opposite: sweeping away the past and making the chronograph the heart of our design; the central component to which we then added a time function, rather than the other way round.” All the elements have been redesigned, resulting in a 46 mm watch, with a LM54 caliber; its rate is 28,800 vibrations per hour ( 4Hz), and a power reserve of 48 hours. Available in pink or white gold in limited editions of only 60 pieces.
