In Conversation with Jean-Marie Schaller, Owner and CEO of Louis Moinet Part I

Wei visits the medieval town of St. Blaise, Switzerland, the home of independent watchmaker Louis Moinet to speak with Owner and CEO Jean-Marie Schaller about the significance of the brand that he revived and the direction it needs to go for the future. Watchmaking history was rewritten in 2016 when Louis Moinet was awarded a Guinness World Record for being the inventor of the chronograph after a stopwatch called the Compteur de Tierces was discovered to have been invented in 1816 by its namesake founder. That same watch had the honor of achieving a second Guinness World Record in 2021 for being the first high frequency stopwatch, beating at a mind-blowing 216,000vph. Jean-Marie gives us a closer look at three contemporary Louis Moinet timepieces that honor this record achievement: the Memoris, Time to Race and Tempograph.
