H. Moser & Cie: Heritage Tourbillon Funky Blue23 May 2019
Inspired by the watches from the 20th century, exhibited at the Moser family museum inside the Charlottenfels Castle in Schaffhausen, H. Moser & Cie. presents the new Heritage Tourbillon Funky Blue.
A completely new model with a 42mm steel case, notched crown, electric blue dial with traditional-style railway minute track, sword-shaped hands coated with SuperLumiNova and appliqué numerals in Globolight, an innovative material that can assume any shape and any colour.
It is a way for H. Moser & Cie. to say: “This tourbillon is anything but boring. This Haute Horlogerie model draws on the so-called sports watches of the 1900s. It is a traditional model in a steel case, but it blurs boundaries and is impossible to sum up in a single word. This creation breaks with the status quo, but is still timeless.”
Visible behind the skeletonised bridge of the one-minute tourbillon beats the HMC 804 automatic calibre, designed, developed and produced entirely in-house. Powering this movement with a three-day power reserve, the oscillating weight transfers the energy to the barrel via a bi-directional pawl winding system which reduces the time required to fully wind the watch. The oscillating weight is skeletonised, revealing the mechanism beneath. A marvel of ingenuity, this movement is equipped with a double flat hairspring designed and produced in-house. To simplify the after-sales service, the tourbillon is an interchangeable module, assembled and regulated separately to the movement via a simple “plug and play” system.
The new H. Moser & Cie. Heritage Tourbillon Funky Blue is combined with a strap in raw leather with white stitching and is available for €.47.600.
