Ateliers Louis Moinet has marked the 200th anniversary of the invention of the chronograph by the man credited with its creation, Louis Moinet.
The Ateliers Louis Moinet watch company was founded in 2004 with the stated aim of celebrating the horology of Mr Moinet (1768-1853).
The watchmaker’s watches, created in limited quantities, often make use of unusual materials, such as fossils and meteorites, combined with bespoke fine watchmaking complications in a unique creative approach. The brand’s core values are creativity, exclusivity, art and design.
Louis Moinet was a watchmaker, scholar, painter, sculptor and teacher at the School of Fine Arts – as well as the author of Traité d’Horlogerie, a watchmaking treatise published in 1848 that remained a definitive work of reference for almost a century.
