H. MOSER & CIE. HONOURS THE BEST RUSSIAN-SPEAKING ENTREPRENEUR IN SWITZERLAND WITH AN ENDEAVOUR CENTRE SECONDS

Neuhausen am Rheinfall, December 12th 2014

On the December 11th, the magnificent La Rotonde room of the Beau-Rivage Palace de Lausanne played host to the evening awards ceremony for the "FAVORIT Entrepreneurship Award 2014". Jelena Gaszanova, Geneva Academic Center, was named as the best Russian-speaking entrepreneur in Switzerland. Event sponsor H. Moser & Cie., alongside its partner, Bucherer, offered its warmest congratulations to the winner, who was presented with an exclusive timepiece: a special edition Endeavour Centre Seconds in palladium with a midnight blue fumé dial.

H. Moser & Cie. has close links with Russia - the company was founded in St. Petersburg in 1828. This was also where Heinrich Moser enjoyed his earliest success, before returning to Switzerland 20 years later. Edouard Meylan, CEO of H. Moser & Cie. was particularly delighted to be able to present the award to the best Russian-speaking entrepreneur in Switzerland: "A visionary watchmaker, Heinrich Moser was also a talented entrepreneur whose main preoccupations were innovation and excellence. This evening therefore represents a double return to our roots." The winner, Jelena Gaszanova, was presented with a special edition Endeavour Centre Seconds in palladium with a midnight blue fumé dial.

 

After the official ceremony, the 500 guests invited to the evening event were able to admire the H. Moser & Cie. creations under a magnifying glass and pose questions to the watchmaker in attendance.
