Louis Moinet was the inventor of the chronograph. Memoris, created by Ateliers Louis Moinet for its 200th anniversary, is the first chronograph-watch: for the first time ever, the chronograph function has been shifted to the dial, positioning the chronograph not simply as a complication, but as a central component of the watch. In this 60-piece limited edition, the chronograph reigns in splendid isolation on the dial, leaving the beholder in no doubt that it is neither a skeleton feature nor an additional component: the all-new movement has been designed for the chronograph alone, and places it centre stage. Its case is made of 18K white gold. 147 parts have been designed and manufactured to allow it to be presented atop the movement plate, adorned with blue Cotes de Genève. This characteristic blue has been a predominant colour in watchmaking ever since the first hands on timepieces emerged. It ensures that each steel component stands out, in unparalleled brilliance and contrast. At noon, the column wheel orchestrates the graceful ballet of steel and gear mechanisms, passing information to the hands.
