Both models take design cues from early 20th century Moser pocket watches

According to H. Moser & Cie.’s CEO Edouard Meylan, the latest Bucherer Blue Editions are resolutely modern, with a design inspired by Moser pocket watches from the early 20th century. Elegant and stylish, they represent individualism and showcase the finest Swiss watchmaking expertise. Unlike previous Bucherer Blue Editions, these timepieces do not feature the color blue on their dials. Instead, H. Moser & Cie. decided to use the iconic Bucherer blue more subtly, on the lining of the strap and on some of the movement’s components. The balance wheels, balance bridges, and the rotors been specially created in blue. All of these parts are visible through the watches’ transparent sapphire case backs.
