Louis Moinet Drops the New Time to Race Watches for 2022

Love to race? Then it’s time to race. Louis Moinet is releasing a trio of adrenaline-infused chronograph watches named the Louis Moinet Time To Race watches. They showcase the complexity of their movements through their dial side. In addition to this, each owner gets to add a unique and individual touch to their own watch by selecting their very own lucky number to feature on the front of the dial.

 

The Time To Race line by Louis Moinet is not a limited production, but it is certainly a one-of-a-kind, special timepiece to add to your collection. Each of the three new models is represented in a specially selected colour that embodies the legendary cars in motorsport. Similar to how the nationalities of vehicle drivers were identified in international races according to the colour of their car up until the 1960s - these new Louis Moinet Time To Race watches represent red for Italy, green for England and blue for France. Still, you don’t have to be French, English or Italian to own a watch in this colour, however. The three striking colours are perfect for the wrist whether you’re an avid Louis Moinet fan or, indeed, if you have a soft spot for racing watches and sports chronographs in general. What will be your preference?

 

 

An aerodynamic style with a new crown base

 

Whilst embodying the beauty of sport, the new Louis Moinet Time To Race watches appeal to gentlemen far and wide with their vibrant colours. Specialist in chronograph watches, Louis Moinet chooses to showcase the working mechanism of the chronograph movement through the dial side via a domed anti-reflective and scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass front. From the side view of the case, however, a new crown base can be admired.

 

Jean-Marie Schaller, the CEO of Louis Moinet extends on the uniqueness of the Time To Race watch and all the elements of its design that add to an exclusive feel on the wrist: “Collectors will indeed be able to personalise their model by selecting a one or two-digit “lucky number” that will appear on the front of the timepiece, along with a dedicated colour code: Rosso Corsa, Green Racing et Bleu de France.No two watches will thus be alike. These colours have been specifically selected because they embody the most legendary cars in motorsports. To ensure clearer vehicle identification, national colours were assigned in motor racing until the end of the 1960s.This tradition remains present today in the collective imagination, as the tradition has endured. Thus, a red car brings to mind Italy, a green one England and a blue one France...”

 

 

The new Louis Moinet Time To Race watches

 

The three new Time To Race watches released by Louis Moinet for 2022 are crafted from lightweight titanium and offer an ergonomic fit for the wrist. Each Grade 5 titanium case weighs just 18 grams and showcases satin-brushed and polished finishes across its surfaces. Enhanced comfort, a seamless fit and a lightweight profile are all aerodynamic values shared with the motorsport industry. The taut and fluid lines of the case are also cleverly considered. The open-worked lugs that lead to the strap have a satin-brushed camber that tastefully introduces the bracelet to the skin. Here, four black zircons with chatons held by screws make up the design of the Louis Moinet signature.

 

 

In each of the new models, a quarter of the tachymeter scale is represented in a matching red, green or blue hue depending on the model. These coordinate with chronograph sub-dial hands and a central chronograph seconds hand in a matching colour. The tachymeter scale and a 60-second display are two short-time measurements that are combined in the watch’s new inner bezel design, dissociated with the sapphire crystal. This bi-material inner bezel ring is an incredibly complex design with luminous measurements that enhance the intuitive measuring of elapsed time, even in the dark. The bezel in each design frames a woven carbon fibre mainplate that brings the intricate components of the chronograph movement to the forefront of the watch. The Caliber LM96 comprises 311 induvial components and provides a power reserve of 48-hours whilst performing at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The smoky-coloured sub-counters provide a sense o balance across the display, whilst the main hours and minutes can be read from the off-centre dial at the southern hemisphere of the display. This is where the wearer’s lucky number is showcased in black against a white backdrop. The surrounding ring that borders this chosen number is reminiscent of the bores used in racing cars.

 

 

Each of the three new Louis Moinet Time To Race watches come fitted on a rubber band matching their respective red, green or blue colours. Here is where each bold block of colour impacts the wrist most. The rubber band encloses the wrist with a folding clasp to provide a neat and comfortable fit.
