MEMORIS YUCATAN is inspired by the world’s first chronograph produced by Louis Moinet in 1816, inventor of the chronograph and of high frequency (Guinness World Records™).
This creation finds unique expression thanks to YUCATAN GREEN, an original colour that owes its vibrancy to a clever combination of sunburst satin-brushing, special-coloured varnish, as well as silvering to enhance its brilliance.
The Louis Moinet MEMORIS YUCATAN houses Calibre LM86, a spectacular and innovative self-winding mechanical movement, displaying the 147 elements of the chronograph function on the dial side.
Every detail of MEMORIS YUCATAN evokes sportiness, elegance and exclusivity based on a unique mechanism stemming from the most advanced research. The curved crystal of the MEMORIS YUCATAN reveals the spectacular and unprecedented design of the chronograph. The traditional mechanism has been entirely separated, with the chronograph device visible on the front and automatic winding on the back.
Unique to Louis Moinet, this vision enables the complexity of this measuring mechanism to be fully admired at each interaction: start, stop, reset. A single gentle press on the single pusher allows an amazing sight to unfold before your eyes. More than 500 components had to be developed in order to achieve this incomparable feat.
The curved YUCATAN GREEN dial endows it with energy and vitality. Modernism is at the forefront, highlighted by revisited hands, new typography and the introduction of hour-markers. The bright red chronograph hands ensure perfect legibility. The black plate adorned with a Côtes de Genève motif helps highlight the powerful chronograph mechanism.
The care devoted to the aerodynamic treatment of the MEMORIS YUCATAN’s design has extended to the use of strongly domed crystals on the front and back of the watch. These serve to refine the silhouette while guaranteeing maximum ergonomics.
This sporty chronograph is housed in a very light titanium case (only 31 grams), which makes it especially comfortable to wear.
The handmade alligator leather strap features unusual colour and finishing combinations, such as the clean-cut and waxed green edges along with seams in green thread. Its extra-matt rubberised finish combined with a green alligator leather lining adds an exuberant touch.
