Lot Essay

This worldwide launch reveals a fully visible chronograph mechanism housed in a 40.7mm titanium case framing contemporary hands, topped by a domed crystal and teamed with an integrated alligator strap.

MEMORIS SPIRIT represents the evolution of the chronograph. Born under the auspices of a legendary name, this watch is synonymous with progress and a profound transformation of the genre. Blending unbridled imagination with the experience gained from having won more than 40 international prizes, it is undoubtedly one of the creations giving fresh impetus to the contemporary superwatch sector while preserving its inherently hand-crafted character.

MEMORIS SPIRIT represents an innovation which relies on the potential that mechanics is capable of deploying without compromising a unique aura of elegance. It stems from the interaction of multiple factors: the quest for beauty, the assurance of comfort on the wrist, along with ergonomics and functionality.

Hand-assembled in accordance with Swiss tradition, MEMORIS SPIRIT "ONLY WATCH" draws inspiration from a profusion of technical details, original colours and splendid finishes.

HISTORY OF THE BRAND
Jean-Marie Schaller created Les Ateliers Louis Moinet in St-Blaise (NE) in 2004 with the objective of paying homage to Louis Moinet by creating avant-garde contemporary mechanical timepieces, crafted exclusively as one-off editions or limited series and evoke two themes: "Cosmic Art" and "Mechanical Wonders". Louis Moinet creations make frequent use of exceptional and original components, including extra-terrestrial and prehistoric materials, in line with the brand’s core values of creativity, exclusivity, art and design. This unique approach has enabled Louis Moinet to win over 40 of the world’s most prestigious awards, including two Guinness World Records (inventor of the first chronograph and high frequency), the UNESCO Merit for Development in Watchmaking Art and Technology Prize; six Red Dot Design Awards; the Horological Creativity Contribution Prize; Gold and Bronze Medals at the International Chronometry Competitions; ten Good Design Awards, three Middle East Watch of the Year distinctions, and more.
