BOLD AND MODERN FOR A STRIKING LOOK: H. MOSER & CIE. PRESENTS THE ENDEAVOUR PERPETUAL CALENDAR FUNKY BLUE IN TITANIUM

Neuhausen am Rheinfall, July 1st, 2016 

H. Moser & Cie. has produced a limited edition of just 10 pieces, boldly combining DLC treated titanium and the striking shades of its sky-blue fumé dial, in what looks set to become one of their iconic dials. Introducing the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Funky Blue in titanium, a model that once again embodies the very essence of H. Moser & Cie.: the creation of exceptional timepieces with a respect for tradition but with modern, unique designs.

Since the start of the year, H. Moser & Cie. has repeatedly revisited its perpetual calendar, with some surprising results. As a leap year, 2016 also marks the 10th anniversary of the legendary calibre HMC 341 that drives the H. Moser Endeavour Perpetual Calendar. Often described as the most streamlined and legible perpetual calendar on the market, this model is now available in an exquisite range of colour and material combinations. H. Moser & Cie. has broken new ground with a brazenly bold version that combines the scintillating black of DLC-finished titanium with the electric blue of its sky-blue fumé dial. The result is an urban, contemporary piece with shifting tones, designed for an elegant clientele in search of a modern touch. Only a lucky few will have the chance to see it adorning their wrist, with just 10 pieces available from H. Moser & Cie. authorised retailers starting in June.

 

The very first owner of an Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Funky Blue in titanium is none other than former German football star Karl-Heinz Riedle. A world champion in 1990 and bronze medallist in the 1988 Olympic Games, Karl-Heinz Riedle boasts an impressive record. An elite sportsman, perfectionist and watch aficionado, H. Moser & Cie. was an obvious choice for him.
