Louis Moinet expands its Memoris chronograph family by launching Memoris Superlight, a new edition of models in Grade-5 titanium. This new edition presents three color variants: each one limited to 28 pieces.
The watch houses Caliber LM 79, an extremely complex self-winding movement made of 302 components. The originality of Memoris resides in the separation of the chronograph (with its 147 components) from the automatic mechanism (155 components). For the first time ever, the entire chronograph has been positioned at the top of the watch, with the automatic part located beneath the plate.
The Memoris column wheel takes pride of place on the front of the watch, at 12 o’clock. This component coordinates the chronograph functions with the minutes hammer, blocking lever, and clutch. From the dial side, Memoris also offers a visual delight of chronograph components in action.
All of the components of the chronograph – yokes, clutch, hammers, column wheel, springs and wheels – are visible, and the wearer can admire their motion when operating the chronograph function. It’s worth noting that in spite of their extreme complexity, all these operations are managed by a single monopusher.
The Memoris in Grade-5 titanium offers a whole new look. Its curved 46 millimetre case features a unique waterproofing system. Emblazoned with the Louis Moinet signature, its lugs boast four black zircons and screwed settings. Another elegant and subtle detail: the two chevé concave sapphire crystals.
The case has a polished, satin-effect finish. Non corrosive titanium allows for the manufacture of slim, lightweight components. The case weighs less than 31 grammes, making it especially comfortable on the wrist.
The watch features a green, purple or red dial background depends upon the version. The straps are made of alligator leather and come with matching colors.
