The Louis Moinet Memoris ‘Red Eclipse’ is an incorporated, programmed, upset mono-pusher chronograph with section wheel. It was first introduced in a restricted version at Baselworld 2016 to praise the bi-century of the Compteur de Tierce (1816-2016) by Louis Moinet. This complex chronograph, with every one of its mechanics obvious on the dial, is presently accessible in a luxuriously engraved pink gold rendition. We should take a nearer look.

The Louis Moinet Memoris was designed as a recognition for the making of the astounding Compteurs de Tierces and the astronomic perceptions of Louis Moinet. As indicated by the markings looking into the issue, this wonderful creation was designed in 1815-1816 (thus, potentially the first chronograph ever) to time the section of the stars – it estimates time stretches to the 60th of a second with start, pause and reset capacities. To arrive at this noteworthy exactness its equilibrium wheel beats at an amazing 216,000 vibrations for each hour.

The Louis Moinet Memoris is an incorporated, programmed, reversed mono-pusher chronograph with section wheel – abnormally, the chronograph component, specifically the segment wheel at 12 o’clock and the flat grip, has been moved to the dial side (it is typically situated at the rear of the watch). This engineering is however heavenly as it could be educational.

The restrictive 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 principle plate utilizing a conventional rose motor machine. The hours and minutes are off kilter at 6 o’clock and showed by “Gouttes de Rosée” hands on a lacquer dial. The rail-tracks for the little seconds and chronograph signs come in white on auxiliary straightforward dials and on the spine 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 particular 6-screw bezel. To upgrade hold, the mushroom chronograph pusher has been engraved with a checkered theme. The crown is enhanced with a heraldic lily, a symbol of Royalty and the logo of the brand. The sapphire back offers a pleasant perspective on the opposite side of the development, incorporating its rotor adorned 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 decorated with the brand’s lily logo. It will be delivered in a restricted release of 12 pieces, at CHF 110,000 each. For more data on Louis Moinet you can visit their site at www.louismoinet.com .
