With the new IMPULSION watch, Les Ateliers Louis Moinet pays tribute to two key figures in watchmaking. Abraham-Louis Breguet and Louis Moinet were close friends and key figures in watchmaking. The former invented the tourbillon, the latter the chronograph. IMPULSION integrates these two high complications in a new mantel.
IMPULSION offers a remarkable spectacle of two complications. A single pusher activates the chronograph hand, which ticks away the seconds and sails over the rotating flying tourbillon, whose off-centre cage does one revolution per minute.
The IMPULSION is powered by the in-house Memoris calibre. Made up of 301 parts, it bears the Louis Moinet DNA, with its column wheel, classic horizontal clutch, and a single pusher. So, we made sure these characteristics would be maintained.
To ensure sufficient energy, the automatic winding system incorporates a manual double-barrel winding system. The system is called “volte-face” because the two barrels are arranged upside down in series. They release their energy at the same time, delivering a power reserve of ninety-six hours.
The IMPULSION comes in a case that was custom-designed to underscore the originality of its character. Made of ultra-light grade 5 titanium, it naturally contributes to the comfort of the wearer.
The case core is available in Moinet blue or intense black, which contrasts harmoniously with the frame cut in 18-carat pink gold.
The hollowed-out lugs and the case middle enhance aesthetic exquisiteness and reduce the overall weight of the watch. The curved crystal reveals the beauty of intricate horological mechanism and optimises the reading of the chronograph indications.
