Take Me Back, A Chronograph Watch By Louis MoinetFriday, October 16, 2015
What is a chronograph timepiece?
A chronograph watch features a regular display watch paired with a stop-watch feature. The main function of this type of watch is to be able to allow a comparison in time. Just as you would use a stop-watch feature, this piece will allow you to do that as well. Many people use a stop-watch on a daily basis in their career or while doing a favorite hobby. The chronograph part in the Memoris has over 300 components in it alone for movement!

For the first time in the history of watchmaking, The Memoris displays the whole of the chronograph function on the dial side. There are 147 chronograph components have been isolated from the rest of the movement, and mounted on top of the plate. This innovative design will hopefully be recognized in Geneva at The Grand Prix d'Horlogerie.

Are you a watch lover? I know my grandfather would surely be impressed with this timepiece. He was a collector of pocket watches and used them on a daily basis. This is definitely an impressive and beautiful mechanical piece!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
