There aren’t many watchmakers out there confident enough to leave their own name off the dial. It’s borderline insane from a branding perspective and you need one hell of a cache to make it work. Fortunately, H. Moser & Cie make it work, especially in their latest, stripped-back take on the tourbillon.
We’re used to seeing tourbillons in overly-elaborate settings like skeletonised movements, painfully ornate dials, that kind of thing. Moser’s instead sits on a blue dial with two hands and absolutely nothing else. It’s pure, simple and utterly stunning – our kind of tourbillon.
It’s just as beautiful on the inside too, with an in-house calibre HMC 804 automatic movement equipped with a solid red gold rotor and double hairspring for increased accuracy. It also has a rather nice three-day power reserve. In short, it has everything you need and nothing you don’t. That’s the Moser & Cie concept.
