Presenting: H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Tourbillon Concept


By now you are all pretty much familiar with Swiss watch brand H. Moser & Cie. and the concept behind their elegant, minimalistic timepieces. With H. Moser & Cie. there are usually no indexes, not text, no Swiss made…just a dial with hands, and occasionally a date window :) . The independent watchmaker believes that pure luxury doesn’t require any needless decoration and that a design itself can be much stronger than a logo. This concept of purity and minimalism is probably best represented in the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Concept – a perpetual watch with a look of a 3-hander! Today the Swiss brand is pushing this concept even further by combining it with watchmaking’s most advanced and complex complication – the tourbillon.

“Adapted to the needs of early 21st century users”

 

Meet the new H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Tourbillon Concept (ref. 1804-0200). Beautifully simple, yet incredibly complex, the brand’s latest watch represents a modern take on the tourbillon. Located at 6 o’clock, the eye-catching tourbillon cage appears to be floating weightlessly. Behind the skeletonized bridge is the caliber HMC 804, H. Moser & Cie.’s latest mechanical movement. Also skeletonized, the 18k red gold oscillating weight transfers the energy to the barrel via a bi-directional pawl winding system that reduces the winding time. The movement is also equipped with an in-house designed and produced double flat hairspring. This feature does not only improve accuracy and isochronism, but also reduce friction usually experienced with a single hairspring. What makes this tourbillon particularly interesting is its unique interchangeable design. Thanks to a simple plug and play system, the tourbillon module can be assembled and regulated independently of the movement. This of course means much easier servicing.

A tourbillon adapted to suit the needs of modern customers, the H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Tourbillon Concept is issued in a limited edition of only 20 pieces. The watch is 42mm wide in diameter and has a case made of white gold. The 18k white gold case is water resistant to 30 meters and features sapphire crystals on both sides. On the back of the watch, the case back ring is engraved with “1 of 20″. Underneath the front sapphire crystal is a beautiful highly minimalist Funky Blue dial. Decorated with sunburst pattern, it is darker on the edges. In addition to the tourbillon, the dial also features elegant leaf-shaped hour and minute hands.

Over the last 10 years, H. Moser & Cie. has developed and produced more than 10 calibres. Their latest one, the self-winding caliber HMC 804, represents an evolution from the caliber HMC 802 used in the 2015 Endeavour Tourbillon. Beating at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour, the new movement offers a power reserve of approximately 72 hours. The H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Tourbillon Concept comes on a stylish hand-stitched and buffed kudu leather strap. The strap is secured with a white gold folding clasp engraved with the Moser logo. Priced at CHF 69,000, the timepiece is now available at official H. Moser & Cie. retailers.
