FAVORITO FRIDAY: LOUIS MOINET 'MEMORIS'

Watches were once just another piece of jewelry to me - something I threw on in the morning like any other bangle or pair of earrings. But with time, my fiancé's knowledge and admiration for the craftsmanship of timepieces, rather than just watches, has rubbed off on me. I always thought a coveted watch could just be picked up at any department store, but that is definitely not all there is to it. You may know a few household names here and there, but my eyes have been opened to what a timepiece really is.

It's simply, but actually not so simply, a piece of art. 


No matter how little or extensive your watch knowledge is - everyone knows what a chronograph is. Yes, Louis Moinet invented that. Now, 200 years later, the Swiss watch brand Louis Moinet has a lot to celebrate - the bicentenary of the iconic invention, the atelier's tenth anniversary, and the launch of the new Memoris.



When I was told about this absolutely breathtaking timepiece, it was kismet! Sure, it has my favorite fashionable aspects (rose gold and black leather!), but my appreciation for it goes well beyond that. The complexity of this handmade piece is almost unworldly. (If you don't believe me, watch the video below, and prepare to be amazed.) Of course, my fiancé already knew about the Memoris before I did, but I truly don't think there's anything about watches he doesn't know already. 



Enough of me drooling over this timepiece - I hope you find the Memoris as special as it is for myself, and especially for my fiancé.
