Louis Moinet’s Memoris Nominated for Best Chronograph in the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie of Geneva
You’ve heard us talk a lot about Memoris, the impressive, first-ever chronograph watch created by Louis Moinet. This timepiece puts the traditional “time telling” function of the watch on the back-burner; instead, the chronograph function has been shifted to the most prominent position on the dial.
We’re not the only ones to take notice of this truly revolutionary timepiece, however. This year the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie of Geneva has nominated the Memoris for an award in the Chronograph category. Held annually, the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie of Geneva aims “…to yearly highlight and reward high-quality creations in order to nurture the advancement of the watchmaking art and contribute to promoting the watch industry worldwide.”
All watch brands are eligible for nomination in any one of the twelve categories, regardless of their nation of origin. The twelve possible categories include:
- Best Ladies Watch
- Best Ladies High-Mechanical Watch
- Best Men’s Watch
- Best Chronograph
- Best Tourbillon
- Best Calendar
- Most Striking
- Best Mechanical Exception
- Best “Petite Aiguille” (watches with a retail price under CHF 8,000)
- Best Sports Watch
- Best Jewellery Watch
- Best Artistic Crafts
Each category has a host of additional requirements in order for a timepiece to be eligible for nomination. Louis Moinet’s Memoris must beat 72 other nominated watch brands in order to take home the 2015 GPHG for Best Chronograph. An international jury of more than 20 high-ranking individuals in the watch industry will vote to determine a winner in each of the twelve categories. The winners will be announced on October 29th, 2015 at the Grand Théâtre de Genève.
