A new design award for Memoris Superlight
Memoris Superlight is once again rewarded for its unique concept in the world!
A memorable 2020, rich in prizes, for Memoris Superlight. A “Platinum Award” from the Muse Design Awards has been added to its list of achievements. An avant-garde international competition created in 2018, the Muse Design Awards honours design professionals and only rewards exceptional concepts, especially in the field of architecture. More than 4,500 candidates, from 57 different countries, have registered so far in an attempt to win a prize. The chronograph mechanism, fully visible on the dial side, gives Memoris Superlight an unusual aesthetic. This symmetry between construction and design ultimately convinced the panel and Memoris Superlight was once again rewarded.
Louis Moinet invented the chronograph in 1816; we transformed it in 2020. It all began with a 100% ingenious design within which the traditional mechanism has been dissociated: automatic winding on the back, and the chronograph system on the front. This new, unique and distinctive vision makes it possible to admire the measurement mechanism at every interaction: start, stop, reset. More than 500 components had to be devised in aim to achieve this incomparable feat. Memoris design is bold and contemporary. To highlight the mechanical aspect of the creation, the counters have been manufactured in an avant-garde entirely translucent material. The rules of comfort require harmony and attention to detail. Memoris has a particularly light case (only 31 grams) and our design studies have shown that the use of chevé concave sapphire crystals, enables optimal arrangement of volumes, while ensuring unrivalled wearing comfort. Finally, the fact that the chronograph functions are handled via a single pushpiece (at 2 o’clock) is an additional user-friendly factor for the wearer.
