We’ve seen several trends at Watches And Wonders 2023. But this new creation by Louis Moinet will sure grab your attention. It’s the birth of a new color with the Memoris Spirit Electrum timepiece.

Electrum gold, the colour used on the MEMORIS SPIRIT Electrum, is a fascinating and enchanting hue. It's one of a kind, and the metallic coating gives it a futuristic look and feel. The green premade rubber strap is attached to the MEMORIS SPIRIT Electrum.

Louis Moinet’s Memoris Spirit Electrum Adds A New Color In Watchmaking

The MEMORIS SPIRIT has a remarkable diameter of 40.7 millimetres and smooth, precisely drawn curves made of Grade 5 titanium. It's a lightweight (18 grammes!) case with a bold personality. The one-of-a-kind mechanism, which consists of more than 300 parts, is housed in a custom-made big domed sapphire crystal. This engine is split in half, with the automatic winding mechanism located in the back and the chronograph in the front. You may now marvel at the precise mechanisms behind each action—start, stop, and reset—thanks to its novel and original design. Only one press of the button will set off an unforgettable show right in front of your eyes. The performance is spearheaded by the column wheel, which features simple toothing and perfectly carved vertical columns.

Breaking the Rules of watchmaking

The MEMORIS SPIRIT's striking aesthetic components are brought to light by its cutting-edge technical wizardry. The first noticeable feature is the technically advanced sapphire dome, which permits the interior volumes to be laid out in the most advantageous manner. The bracelet fits seamlessly into the case, which is highlighted by the openworked lugs. The convenience of the single push-button makes the chronograph very user-friendly. Aerodynamic lines were used in the design of the crown support. The innovative incorporation of the flange's dual display under the sapphire crystal. The counters were made out of transparent material so that the intricate workings of the system could be admired.

A creative spirit at work

The dial side of a chronograph displays all of its great wizardry in full view. This remarkable feat has reached legendary status. In creating the MEMORIS SPIRIT, great care was taken to honour Louis Moinet's legacy. It mimics the design of Louis Moinet's original chronograph from 1816 (Guinness World RecordsTM)!
