20 second Tempograph
WITH THE "20 SECOND TEMPOGRAPH", LES ATELIERS LOUIS MOINET OFFER WONDERFUL MOTION ON THE DIAL !
On the right, the main complication (20 seconds retrograde) moves three times back per minute and we love it, either mechanically or aesthetically. Just below (at 4:30) you'll see the hours & minutes hands displayed in a classic and delicate way.
On the left, you'll see the heart of the caliber LM39 (at 11:00) which runs on a frequency of 4 Hz. Under (at 9:00) there is a disk with three colors (white/gray/black). Each color represents 20 seconds so you actually have a second way to appreciate a minute.
At 8:00, the cam and its ruby-tipped moves in harmony with the rest of the caliber and this discreet component is definitely our favourite !
The LM39 caliber has over 260 components and if you think, the dial has 4 different elements in motion.
An outstanding creation! Hats off, Louis Moinet.
