LOUIS MOINET MEMORIS AMAZONIA LM-86.20.AM




LOUIS MOINET MEMORIS AMAZONIA LM-86.20.AM

With rich colour tones and an extraordinary display of mechanical complexity, the Memoris Amazonia watch from the 2021 Life collection by Louis Moinet is an outstanding watch which offers a new interpretation of a modern classic. With its bronze dial and encased in a 46mm case of lightweight Grade 5 titanium, it is a watch with resplendent eye-pleasing aesthetics, and one which has an imposing presence on the wrist.


Renowned for its sophisticated proprietary movement, which is designed to expose the intricate complexity of the chronograph mechanism on the dial side, with the Life collection Louis Moinet bring a new prospective on this outstanding chronograph watch. Comprising five models of twelve individually numbered limited edition pieces each, the Memoris Life collection is a showcase for the company’s mastery of the chronograph complication.


Although pared back to no more than a chapter ring and small decentralised dial on which the hours and minutes are displayed, the bronze dial of the Amazonia edition is stunning.  The effect is created through a combination of sunbrushed satin finishing with a bronze varnish, and a silvering process, which gives the dial an added metallic appearance.


Two skeletonised subdials at the three and the nine display the thirty-minute chrono counter and small constant seconds respectively, and the red hands stand out effectively against the exposed mechanical backdrop beneath.


Accentuated against the black backdrop of the movement plate which is decorated with pronounced Côtes de Genève stripes, the focus is drawn towards the components of the chronograph which are fully exposed on the dial side. Operated via the single mono pusher which is adjacent to the crown, the distinctive column wheel with its crown of teeth, which defines the contemporary chronograph is directly below the twelve, and is the command centre to the levers which activate the complication. With the gears and wheels of the going train also visible, it is a captivating view of this fascinating mechanical array.


On the underside, a sapphire caseback reveals the superb hand finishing of the 18Kt gold oscillating weight and Côtes de Genève decoration on the plates and bridges of the self winding movement within. Fully manufactured in house by Louis Moinet the Calibre LM86 beats at 28’800vph, and will run for 48 hours before requiring rewinding.


An excellent example of contemporary independent watchmaking, the Louis Moinet Memoris Amazonia is a chronograph of captivating beauty which celebrates this most familiar yet complex of all horological complications. t has been manufactured in an exclusive production of only twelve examples, and is presented on a rubberised brown alligator leather strap with bronze stitching and folding titanium clasp.
