Memoris elected Chronograph of the Year in Japan

Memoris elected Chronograph of the Year in Japan

This month, Ateliers Louis Moinet have won a new prize: MEMORIS has been named best chronograph of the year by the prestigious Japanese watchmaking magazine Begin.

The award is all the more significant in that Japan, a market with no shortage of high level experts, is characterized by its exacting watchmaking standards. MEMORIS was elected Chronograph of the Year from a shortlist of nine timepieces by a panel of journalists and independent experts.

Once again MEMORIS, the first chronograph-watch in history, has been distinguished for its technical and aesthetic audacity. Coincidentally, the prize awarded by Begin also marks the bi-centenary of the invention of the chronograph by Mr Louis Moinet, in 1816.

On the occasion of the Geneva watch week, Ateliers Louis Moinet unveiled the first of two limited editions commemorating this “Bi-centenary of the Invention of the Chronograph.”
