Louis Moinet Two more Design Awards
Two German Design Awards were awarded for Louis Moinet Tempograph Chrome and Skylink.
Skylink celebrates the cosmonaut that changed the face of the globe, in 1975 at a time when the world was in the throes of the Cold War. At 7.20pm on July 17, 1975, two spaceships were docked in space; only the hatch of Soyuz 19 separated Alexey Leonov from Apollo. In opening the hatchway, he also opened up a new world of peace and cooperation; his first interstellar handshake with Commander Thomas Stafford was an unforgettable moment.
Louis Moinet celebrates this achievement in the conquest of space and human relations with its Skylink timepiece. At 3 o’clock sits a special, exclusive Skylink feature: a micro capsule containing a fragment of Kapton foil – the polyamide fabric which protected Apollo on its return to Earth on July 24, 1975 – together with fibres from the Russian Sokol-K spacesuit.

For its part, the new-generation Tempograph 20-Secondes includes two major firsts. Firstly, it features a completely blue surround. Secondly, the timepiece features a new case, borrowed from Louis Moinet’s Memoris collection, the first chronograph watch in history. Packed with 52 components, the case has been decreased in size from 46 to 44 millimetres, and then fully reworked to accommodate the Tempograph 20-Secondes’ retrograde movement. This is also the first time this case has been made in steel.
