Louis Moinet has created an absolutely unique watch. The timekeeping wonder, named Tempograph, strikes by its all-new technology. The zest of the watch is the retrograde seconds mechanism, constantly on the move.
The retrograde seconds hand marks off the time in ten-second segments alternating due to an instant retrograding motion.
The Tempograph also fascinates by its spectacular cam mechanism that can be admired in action. The cam is fitted on a plate highlighting its performance. It features six teeth and makes one rotation every minute. The cam releases a lever in titanium indicating a ten-second measurement with help of a blued steel hand.
The cam and the upper bridge are completely matte-polished and embellished by steel screws in blue, while the titanium lever is hand-drawn and beveled.
The exclusive timepiece accommodates an exclusive self-winding movement built from 125 parts - Louis Moinet Calibre LM05. Its balance is beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour. The original rotor demonstrates a 360-degree shape inspired by the Cotes-du-Jura motif and features blued steel screws. The movement gives an advantage of a 42-hour power reserve.
The Tempograph, reviewed by watches.infoniac.com, features a black or silver dial adorned with the Cotes-du-Jura decoration. It is protected by an anti-glare sapphire crystal.
The case of the Louis Moinet watch measures 47mm in diameter. It is composed of 48 elements. The case construction incorporates a crown guard integrating the stem the way to allow its replacement when it is necessary.
The case is crafted from titanium and steel, incorporating a black PVD-coated bezel. There is also a version in 18K rose gold, titanium and steel. The third version of the timepiece is crafted in 18K gold of two different shades - deep rose gold and medium rose gold. The timepiece is 30-meter water-resistant.
The Louis Moinet Tempograph is secured to the wrist on a hand-sewn Louisiana alligator leather strap.
