STREAMLINER FLYBACK CHRONOGRAPH AUTOMATIC
Marking the start of a new era in the H. Moser & Cie. saga, the Streamliner Flyback Chronograph Automatic is an unprecedented reimagining of the stainless steel chronograph.
More a wearable sculpture than a simple steel watch, H. Moser & Cie. sought to create a new form with unprecedented lines and finishes for the Streamliner.
The result is cushion-shaped case with a slightly domed surface and recessed sides, in perfect harmony with the contours of the integrated and uniquely designed steel bracelet.
Conceived by Agenhor, the chronograph calibre is simply like no other, offering advantages in every aspect over a traditional chronograph movement. By placing the automatic winding mechanism between the dial and the movement, the case back offers an unobstructed view of the innovative and complex calibre.
The intricacy of the movement paradoxically translates to a pure, minimalist dial typical of H. Moser & Cie., featuring a new design for the ceramic luminescent hands as well as a raw, vertical brushing on the signature fumé dial. For the first time ever, the hands of the flyback chronograph are coaxially mounted on the centre of the dial, offering an easy and instantaneous while keeping the dial uncluttered.
A work of art in its own right, the integrated stainless steel bracelet is the central element of the Streamliner’s visual identity – rather than an afterthought that must somehow fit the case. Its articulating links, boasting a vertically satin-brushed surface with polished curved edges, take form and function to new heights with the bracelet’s ergonomic form.
