The world's first Chronograph-Watch.
It's important to note a particular distinction here. Louis Moinet (circa 1768-1853) is now the known inventor of the very first ever, wold renown, original chronograph.
Now, in 2015 the Louis Moinet company has invented the chronograph all over again.
What's unique about Memoris is that the function of the movement and the aesthetic are uniquely designed to have the Chronograph shine, and the record of time as supplement.
The watch not only celebrates a new vision for the chronograph function, it will be around for the 200th anniversary of the chronograph next year in 2016 as well as the 10th anniversary of the Louis Moinet Atelier.
Adding to the grandeur of Memoris is the nomination for the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie of Geneva. It would be an exceptional year for the chronograph.
My gif at top is a simple nod to the beauty of the Memoris. The smoothness of motion, the complexity visible in the exposed function, those are for the realm of reality. Though, Louis Moinet has produced several artistic videos showing the Memoris and the history of the brand.
History of the Chronograph. The first 3 minutes are beautiful the rest is simply interesting.
