H. MOSER & CIE. RECOGNISES EXCEPTIONAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP WITH AN ENDEAVOUR CENTRE SECONDS - SPECIAL EDITION

Neuhausen am Rheinfall, November 28th, 2014

On December 11th, at the Beau-Rivage Palace in Lausanne, FAVORIT hosts an evening presentation of the “FAVORIT Entrepreneurship Award 2014”. H. Moser & Cie. will congratulate the winning entrepreneur with an exclusive timepiece: the Endeavour Centre Seconds – Special Edition, a palladium model with a fumé dial in midnight blue. Supporting the “FAVORIT Entrepreneurship Award 2014” is a wonderful way for the company to continue in the spirit of founder Heinrich Moser’s very rare entrepreneurial heritage and reconnect Russian ties.

Support of entrepreneurialism is a key value tied to Swiss watch brand H. Moser & Cie.  Heinrich Moser, founder of the eponymous company, was not only an ambitious and visionary watchmaker, he was a restless entrepreneur. He immigrated to St. Petersburg to found his company in 1828 and make his mark as a watchmaker, and he became a recognized leader in this field in record time. Upon his return in Switzerland 20 years later he modernized the infrastructure in his hometown Schaffhausen. Then as today Heinrich Moser is recognized as one of the leading Swiss pioneering industrialists.

 

H. Moser & Cie. wishes all candidates success during the rigorous selection process, which is conducted based on criteria including Russian origin and business factors by a jury of 7 illustrious judges.
