H. Moser & Cie: Venturer Concept Vantablack

Vantablack

After the debut of the Vantablack dial with the Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept, H. Moser & Cie. presents Venturer Concept Vantablack, a new version with a 39mm red gold case and an ultra-black dial made from Vantablack.

Vantablack

Regarded as the darkest substance in existence, its ultra-black coating, Vantablack®, is used in astrophysics in telescopes and by the army as thermal camouflage. It is composed of carbon nanotubes that are vertically aligned next to each other and is capable of absorbing 99.965 % of light. This astral, abyss-like black, which reflects no light, appears to stunning effect on a Concept dial, with neither logo nor indices. The case, whose convex shapes evoke the 1960s and the Bauhaus movement of the 1940s, plays the neo-vintage card while showcasing a round design inspired by historic pocket watches.

Vantablack

At the heart of the Venturer Concept Vantablack case beats the HMC 327 hand-wound Manufacture calibre with small seconds. Visible through the sapphire case-back, this movement is equipped with an escapement with a bi-directional screw, developed and manufactured by Precision Engineering, the sister company of H. Moser & Cie. The HMC 327 calibre guarantees a minimum 3-day power reserve, displayed on an indicator on the reverse side of the watch, to preserve the refined elegance of the dial. (Price €. 23.800)
