Louis Moinet is supporting the famous Only Watch charity auction in its ninth edition.
For its third participation, Louis Moinet is presenting the world-first MEMORIS SPIRIT, which represents the latest evolution of the chronograph. Hand-assembled in keeping with Swiss tradition, MEMORIS SPIRIT “ONLY WATCH” draws its essence from an abundance technical details, original colours and splendid finishing.
MEMORIS SPIRIT “ONLY WATCH” chronograph appears attired in a new grade 5 titanium case featuring flowing curves and an exceptional 40.7mm diameter.
This boldly assertive housing is particularly light and, based on technical studies, the use of strongly convex watch glass enables optimal layout while ensuring peerless comfort on the wrist.
An XXL sapphire dome has been entirely developed to highlight a unique mechanism. The result of each chronograph operation (start, stop, reset) can thus be admired at leisure.
One press on the dedicated single pusher activates an impressive show starring the column wheel with its toothing and precisely cut vertical columns.
This original creation features a unique colour combination: a magnificent gold-toned hours and minutes dial, a translucent black and blue flange to separate time read-off, along with a blue-lacquered mainplate to highlight the mechanism.
The dial is delicately adorned with rhodium-plated hour-markers and new contemporary hands to ensure perfect legibility. To highlight the mechanical aspect of the creation, the counters have been crafted from an innovative, entirely translucent material.
Finally, the entire reverse side of the movement is revealed through a sapphire crystal caseback surrounded by the engraved inscription “ONLY WATCH – N°01/01”. The open-worked lugs with their pure, avant-garde design offer a pleasing contrast between satin-brushed and polished surfaces.
This is the first time that Louis Moinet has opted for an integrated design: the case and the rubber-finished alligator strap merge to form a single entity on the wrist. The integrated strap perfectly matches the shape of the case, resulting in a modern chronograph exuding a rare degree of sophistication.
