Louis Moinet, the chronograph’s inventor The recent discovery of a hitherto unknown timepiece is rewriting the history of watch development. It turned out to be the first ever chronograph, although its maker, Louis Moinet, called it a "compteur de tierces". According to hallmarks on the dust cover, the chronograph was started in 1815 and completed the following year.This remarkable instrument of an entirely original design is evidently the work of a genius well ahead of his time.
