MEMORIS VESUVIO | A modern interpretation of the chronograph 

MEMORIS VESUVIO expresses the potential of mechanics while making no compromises on elegance. The design of this contemporary chronograph is inspired by the world's first chronograph produced in 1816by Louis Moinet, inventor of the chronograph and of high frequency (Guinness World Records). 

Every detail of the MEMORIS VESUVIO evokes sportiness, elegance and exclusivity based on a unique mechanism stemming from state-of-the-art research. The curved crystal of the MEMORIS VESUVIO reveals the spectacular and original design of the chronograph. The traditional mechanism has been completely separated, with the chronograph function revealed on the front and the automatic winding system through the back. This new vision makes it possible to fully admire the complexity of this measuring mechanism at each interaction: start, stop, reset. A single, gentle press on the single pusher activates a spectacular show. More than 500 components had to be developed in order to achieve this incomparable feat.

This creation also symbolises dynamism and modernity. Its domed lemon-yellow dial endows it with energy and vitality, striking a vivid contrast with the bright red hands ensuring perfect legibility. The black baseplate adorned with a Côtes de Genève motif helps highlight the powerful chronograph mechanism.

The care devoted to the aerodynamic treatment of the lines of the MEMORIS VESUVIO even extends to the use of strongly convex crystals on both the front and back of the watch. These serve to ensure a trim outline while guaranteeing maximum ergonomics.

This sporty-natured chronograph features an extremely light titanium case (only 31 grams), which makes it especially comfortable to wear.

The ambience of the handmade alligator leather strap is dominated by novel colour combinations and details conducive to comfort on the wrist, such as the reworked flexibility and genuine alligator leather lining. Combined with a rubberised finish, the clean-cut dyed edges add a distinctively vibrant touch.
