Indomitable Genius

To celebrate Louis Moinet’s double century of the invention of the chronograph, and as a mark of respect to their founder’s indomitable creative genius, Louis Moinet present the Memoris – the world’s first chronograph timepiece that is clothed in light.

Two hundred years since the invention of the world’s first chronograph in 1816, Louis Moinet have created a stunning timepiece clad in a canopy of stars blazing out of the night sky, the first of a series of Limited Edition creations dedicated to the bicentenary of the invention of the chronograph.

Using an engraving technique that is unprecedented in watchmaking – the “Memoris 200th Anniversary” features a series of individual stars scattered across the night sky, each one worked on individually by the craftsman to imbue a natural sparkle.

All stars are fashioned to feature different angles and depths, so that they capture as much light as possible. Several fixed graver sessions were required per star. The process used is unprecedented in watchmaking and the outstanding result gives the novel impression that the stars really are shining.

For the flange and counter bridge, Ateliers Louis Moinet used a revolutionary translucent material. Its precise makeup, produced by combining a number of composite materials and high-temperature vacuum molding, is a closely-guarded secret. Using it in translucent dark blue on the flange of the new Memoris adds a visual sense of depth, which an opaque flange could not accomplish. In its natural state, this material is just as pure and translucent as crystal, but not as fragile, allowing it to be used for the counter bridge, so the wearer can admire the night blue sky without missing a single star.

Manufactured using 18K gold, the diameter of the watch measures 46 mm and it is water resistant to a depth of 50 meters. Only 20 numbered units are available of this timepiece.
