Louis Moinet Mecanograph Mechanical Automatic Watch

Louis Moinet Mecanograph Mechanical Automatic Watch
A true precision instrument with COSC chronometer certification, the Mecanograph puts its entire regulating organ on view, together with its escapement and openworked gear train. This mechanical choreography vibrating at 8 beats a second is a truly mesmerising sight! This brilliantly engineered Manufacture movement, which is visible beneath half the dial, has other treasures. Seemingly suspended above this beating heart, small seconds at 9 o'clock create an impression of depth. Perfect in every least detail, the Mecanograph reveals more of its secrets through a display back. The balance with screws takes on a different perspective compared with the dial side, forming a unique element within a symphony of anthracite bridges, Verneuil jewels, blued screws and undulating Côtes du Jura. The Mecanograph's superior mechanical qualities were rewarded in the "Classic" category of the 2013 Concours International de Chronométrie.
