The newest addition to the Louis Moinet family is the Memoris timepiece. It is the first chronograph watch in history, and is available in 18 karat pink gold, 18 karat white gold with a rhodium-plated mainplate, and 18 karat white gold with a blue mainplate.
A chronograph is a specific type of watch that can be used as a stopwatch and a display watch. Louis Moinet invented the chronograph in 1816 to use while tracking astronomical objects. Chronographs have also been used in artillery fire during the mid- to late-1800s. Today, they're used while piloting airplanes, in car racing, and in diving and submarine maneuvering.
The chronograph itself is the main inspiration for the Memoris. The entire chronograph function has been shifted to the dial, making it both the primary function and the heart of the watch. The "Energie Plus" automatic pawl winding system allows the piece to be wound in both directions that offers a level of precision that is unrivaled in other watches.
This unique watch is available in only three limited editions and 60 copies by set! It is nominated for the prestigious Grand Prix d'Horlogerie of Geneva award, which is given out annually to high-quality creations to nurture the advancement of watchmaking.
Bottom Line: I think the Louis Moinet Memoris timepiece is absolutely gorgeous! I especially like the pink gold design. I love that the piece is beautiful, but also that it has a ton of history behind it as well.
