Swiss independent watchmaker H. Moser & Cie’s latest masterpiece features a solid gold movement inside a titanium case.
The Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Black Golden Edition is limited to just 10 pieces and uses modern techniques to showcase traditional craftsmanship. A titanium case with polished DLC finishing houses an in-house HMC 341 movement with solid gold plates and bridges.
The perpetual calendar movement, winner of the GPHG complicated watch category in 2006, displays the date through a large aperture at the 3 o’clock position and month using a short central hand that sees hour markers double as calendar months. H. Moser & Cie’s Flash Calendar system sees date changes click over in a fraction of second within a ten second window around midnight and the calendar can be adjusted forward or backwards at any time without any risk to the movement.
The movement also keeps track of irregular months and leap years, displayed via a dial visible through a sapphire crystal caseback. Hacking small seconds are indicated at the 6 o’clock.
Hand-engraving is used to decorate the movement which features a Moser escapement with Straumann Double Hairspring. Double barrels provide a minimum power reserve of seven days, indicated on the dial at the 9 o’clock position.
The watch’s dial is decorated in a sunburst pattern with gold fume that graduates outward from the centre to darker tones.
The watch is secured with a carbon-coated, matte black alligator strap and fastened with a solid 18-carat rose gold folding clasp with Moser logo.
