TEMPOGRAPH is an incomparable watch endowed with all-new technology and absolutely unique in its kind.

The first distinctive feature is its retrograde seconds mechanism, which is constantly on the move. The watch is a non-stop visual delight, enlivened by the regular ballet of a hand that marks off the time in ten-second segments alternating with an instant retrograding motion. 

The cam mechanism is also truly spectacular and has been left visible so as to enable the wearer to admire it in action.

Fitted on a plate specially designed to highlight its operation, the cam is composed of six teeth and performs one rotation per minute. It releases a titanium lever which displays a ten-second measurement by means of a blued steel hand. The quality of execution of the entire mechanism is extremely high: the cam and the upper bridge are entirely matt-polished by hand and enhanced by blued steel screws, and the lever is hand-drawn and bevelled.

The TEMPOGRAPH technology is distinguished from existing retrograde displays by the layout and the type of display, which lend a resolutely original touch to this invention. This watch has the astonishing capacity to bring Haute Horlogerie to the wearer’s wrist in a truly exceptional way. A patent application has indeed been filed to protect the TEMPOGRAPH technology developed in cooperation with Sébastien Rousseau.

The exclusive TEMPOGRAPH movement (Louis Moinet Calibre LM05) is a self-winding mechanism with a balance beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour. Its rotor is particularly original, featuring a 360-degree shape inspired by the “Côtes du Jura” ® motif and equipped with blued steel screws. The movement is made up of 125 parts.

TEMPOGRAPH is presented in an exceptional new case composed of 48 different elements. It highlights the crown guard which integrates the stem so as to facilitate its replacement if required (Louis Moinet patent pending). TEMPOGRAPH comes in three versions : grade 3 titanium + 316L steel + DLC-coated bezel; 18K rose gold 5N + grade 3 titanium + 316L steel; or two 18-carat gold colours (deep rose 5N + medium rose 3N). The case is entirely crafted in the workshop of Bernard Goudron, an artisan with an excellent reputation in the field of complicated cases.

Louis Moinet demonstrates its determination to combine aesthetic and technical excellence, particularly through the dial applique which highlights the hours and minutes while extending over the case. This original and modern way of mingling displays, refined technology and watch exteriors is directly inspired by the historical work of Louis Moinet, and especially by some of the sketches appearing in his Traité d’Horlogerie published in 1848.
