DIAMONDS AND VANTABLACK®

The Venturer Concept Vantablack® Diamonds from H. Moser & Cie. marries the purity of white gold and the brilliance of diamonds with the deepest black of a dial made from Vantablack®, an innovative material used in astrophysics. Playing heavily on contrasts, the Schaffhausen-based manufacture has produced a seductive, sparkling model with a 40 mm diameter case. It adopts a resolutely minimalist aesthetic, effortlessly elegant thanks to its pared-down dial.

MOVEMENT

6/6, Flash calendar

Unlike most other calendars which change gradually, an H. Moser Flash Calendar is very rare in that it changes from one date to the next in a fraction of a second. This is a feature the Monard Big Date and the Perpetual Calendar share. The Flash Calendar is particularly impressive and useful on the Perpetual Calendar, as the date instantaneously changes at midnight to the correct date, even on short months such as February.

MOVEMENT

5/6, Perpetual calendar

Our Perpetual Calendar is best known for its simple design. This is possible in part due to the ingenious display for the month: a short central arrow hand uses the hour indices to indicate the month. This exceptional solution led the Perpetual Calendar to be recognised at the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix in 2006.

MOVEMENT

4/6 Double pull crown

All of our watches featuring a date, or a second time zone, have a Double Pull Crown. This smart, simple feature allows the crown to be pulled out in two stages, the first for adjusting the date or second time zone, the second for stopping the movement and setting the time. With this function, the watch continues to indicate the correct hour, minute and second without interruption when adjusting the date or additional displays.

MOVEMENT

3/6, Hacking seconds

The incorporation of a Hacking Seconds into our movements is an ingenious feature, which enables the watch to be set precisely to the second. The seconds hand remains stationary when the crown is pulled out to adjust the time ; and starts moving again the instant the crown is pushed in.

MOVEMENT

2/6, THE INTERCHANGEABLE ESCAPEMENT MODULE

The interchangeable Moser escapement module is one of our cleverest features; developed to simplify the adjustment, cleaning and servicing of the watch. It enables the watchmaker to remove the existing escapement module, clean and oil the rest of the movement before installing a new pre-adjusted module.

MOVEMENT

1/6, 7-day power reserve

We are remarkable for offering several models with a 7-day power reserve, a valuable asset in a mechanical watch of this calibre. This is achieved by the use of two barrels in the movement. The actual winding springs are made from the unbreakable and self-lubricating material Nivaflex. Our power reserve indicators are on the movement side of most of our watches, visible through the sapphire crystal case-back.

A new generation

In 2005, Heinrich Moser’s great-grandson, Roger Nicholas Balsiger, joined forces with Dr. Jurgen Lange and Thomas Straumann to re-establish H. Moser & Cie. in the canton of Schaffhausen with a new Manufacture. In 2012, the Meylan family, with a rich heritage in fine watchmaking, brought its invaluable experience to the company. Its chairman, Georges-Henri Meylan, a man with uncommon entrepreneurial vision, believes that by investing in Swiss watch manufacturers of rare quality, he can build an independent watch group which not only benefits those involved at present, but also future generations. This vision is shared by his son, Edouard Meylan, who is the CEO of H. Moser & Cie.

 

COMPANY

Heinrich Moser

In 1829, to guarantee the quality of watches bearing his name, Henrich Moser built a factory in Le Locle – a centre of Swiss watchmaking excellence. Aged just 43 he returned to Schaffhausen, a prosperous watch manufacturer and merchant where he contributed to the industrial expansion of the region. His pioneering spirit and entrepreneurial zeal saw him contribute to many other fields in addition to running H. Moser & Cie. Most notable was the completion (in 1864) of the largest dam in Switzerland at the time, situated on the Rhine near Schaffhausen.

 

COMPANY

Heinrich Moser

Heinrich Moser was born in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, in 1805. Both his grandfather, Johannes, and his father, Erhard, were watchmakers of the highest calibre. Heinrich was the beneficiary of their rare knowledge, quickly becoming an expert watchmaker in Le Locle. It wasn’t long before his remarkable artistic skill gained him international respect, and at the age of just 21, he set up on his own. In 1828, Heinrich’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to St. Petersburg where he founded H. Moser & Cie. The company’s rare and exquisite creations were soon gracing the wrists of Russian princes and members of the Imperial Court. They even sold movements to other companies; most of Fabergé’s table clocks were equipped with movements produced by H. Moser & Cie.
