The Louis Moinet Memoris ‘Red Eclipse’ is a coordinated, programmed, transformed mono-pusher chronograph with segment wheel. It was first introduced in a restricted version at Baselworld 2016 to praise the bi-centennial of the Compteur de Tierce (1816-2016) by Louis Moinet. This complex chronograph, with every one of its mechanics obvious on the dial, is currently accessible in a luxuriously engraved pink gold variant. We should take a nearer look.
The Louis Moinet Memoris was designed as a recognition for the formation of the surprising Compteurs de Tierces and the astronomic perceptions of Louis Moinet. As per the markings looking into it, this striking creation was designed in 1815-1816 (thus, conceivably the first chronograph ever) to time the entry of the stars – it estimates time stretches to the 60th of a second with start, pause and reset capacities. To arrive at this amazing accuracy its equilibrium wheel beats at a noteworthy 216,000 vibrations for every hour.
The Louis Moinet Memoris is a coordinated, programmed, reversed mono-pusher chronograph with segment wheel – strangely, the chronograph component, specifically the segment wheel at 12 o’clock and the level grasp, has been moved to the dial side (it is normally situated at the rear of the watch). This design is however wonderful as it seems to be educational.
The selective type LM54 of the Memoris has been developed and manufactured with Concepto in La Chaux-de-Fonds. It includes high-grade getting done with decent slopes and fine cleaning. The brilliant sky noticeable under the chronograph parts is dealt with the fundamental plate utilizing a conventional rose motor machine. The hours and minutes are unbalanced at 6 o’clock and showed by “Gouttes de Rosée” hands on a veneer dial. The rail-tracks for the little seconds and chronograph signs come in white on auxiliary straightforward dials and on the rib outlining the development. The depth of the watch’s face, with each part catching light on its different surfaces, is eye-catching.
The 46mm case is 18k pink gold and is lavishly hand-engraved. It includes a domed sapphire gem outlined by the brand’s unmistakable 6-screw bezel. To improve grasp, the mushroom chronograph pusher has been engraved with a checkered theme. The crown is embellished with a heraldic lily, a symbol of Royalty and the logo of the brand. The sapphire back offers a decent perspective on the opposite side of the development, incorporating its rotor decorated with a “red moon” in enamel.
The Louis Moinet Memoris Red Eclipse in engraved pink gold is paired with a croc tie fit with a 18K gold collapsing clasp enhanced with the brand’s lily logo. It will be delivered in a restricted version of 12 pieces, at CHF 110,000 each. For more data on Louis Moinet you can visit their site at www.louismoinet.com .
