H. Moser & Cie: Nature Watch

At H. Moser & Cie., we had a dream, of an era where time is infinite. It passes quietly, in perfect peace. It is within everyone’s reach. We have realised this in the form of a promise, a warning to future generations: the Moser Nature Watch, a mechanical watch that is ‘green’ and living… but not eternal.
Since we don’t live in Utopia, time – like the natural world impacted by our actions – is increasingly fragile and precious. Each of us must take the utmost care of it.

The Moser Nature Watch is much more than a ‘green’ mechanical watch: it is a symbol. This watch is 100% Swiss Made; it was created using plants native to Switzerland, grown in the gardens of the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture.

The Moser Nature Watch is a symbol of climate change, standing against the rampant consumerism which is rife among us; equipped with a mechanical movement, the Moser Nature Watch is made to last, to be passed on – like a baton in a relay race – on the sole condition that the owner knows how to take care of it.

The team at H. Moser & Cie. is driven to create “timekeepers” – in the primary and literal sense of instruments which “keep time” – not only by the passion but also by the sense of responsibility.

Nature Watch

The Moser Nature Watch is a symbol of our commitment to try to do more and do better. We have therefore been rethinking our ways of working, to take a responsible global approach in the areas of supply, manufacture and sales. Specifically, our commitments are threefold:

  • To fulfil the certification conditions of the Responsible Jewellery Council during 2019
  • To use Fair Trade materials as often as possible – from 2019, the new collections in gold will be created using Fair Trade gold.
  • To guarantee a zero carbon footprint in manufacturing our timepieces by using more efficient methods and procedures, and by offsetting the residual footprint by buying carbon credits.

Finally, H. Moser & Cie. is committing to supporting organisations spearheading ambitious educational initiatives. This is why it was decided to create a partnership with Room to Read. Room to Read is an international organisation dedicated to improving literacy and gender equality in education. The organisation works hard to ensure every child has access to education. This partnership will support various special initiatives including creating several unique timepieces and donating 10 children’s books for each visitor to the H. Moser & Cie. booth during SIHH 2019.

Each of us must make a contribution. This is ours, and it is only the beginning. #MakeSwissMadeGreenAgain.

The Moser Nature Watch is a unique piece, on show at SIHH in Geneva from January 14th-17th, 2019.
