ENDEAVOUR FLYING HOURS: A NEW DEVELOPMENT AND A NOVEL APPROACH FOR H. MOSER & CIE.
H. Moser & Cie. knows that to innovate, you have to challenge yourself. For the first time in its history, the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture has revisited its time display methods to create a new, disc-based system. The mechanism is inspired by the planetary systems that led to the birth of modern, independent watchmaking. Adopting a technical approach that respects the elegant, understated style of H. Moser & Cie., the result is an exceptionally refined time measuring instrument. The Endeavour Flying Hours represents a major step for the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture. This remarkable modular development is based on its automatic HMC 200 calibre, which has been modified to create the C806 movement.

ENDEAVOUR TOURBILLON CONCEPT: PURE BOLDNESS
The tourbillon, a complex mechanism with both technical and aesthetic appeal, revised according to the minimalist approach characteristic of H. Moser & Cie. The Schaffhausen-based Manufacture has revisited this classic piece of mechanical watchmaking and extracted only the essence: A dial featuring the brand's signature fumé, two blued hands, and at 6 o'clock, a one minute flying tourbillon produced in module form, because for H. Moser & Cie., the details make all the difference. The Endeavour Tourbillon Concept with a steel case features a design of very rare power, reinforced by the absence of both logo and indices on the dial. H. Moser & Cie. has allowed the tourbillon complete license for self-expression, in an ode to simplicity.

A MINIMALIST SWISS ALP WATCH IN COSMIC GREEN
A watch to tell the time, nothing more: The Swiss Alp Watch Concept Cosmic Green offers no extra applications; there is no means of checking twitter. Instead, it claims its position as a status symbol for 100% Swiss mechanical watches in contrast to smartwatches. H. Moser & Cie. has been designing, developing and producing its Haute Horlogerie timepieces since 1828 and will continue on this path. The Swiss Alp Watch Concept Cosmic Green is available in a limited edition of 20 pieces.

H. MOSER & CIE.: EXPERIENCE THE BLUE LAGOON
Following on from its Cosmic Green dial, H. Moser & Cie. is introducing Blue Lagoon, the classic turquoise of an island paradise. The Venturer Concept Blue Lagoon is the perfect showcase for this new dial, named in honour of its vibrant colour. It marks the first time that H. Moser & Cie. has offered a Concept version of its 39-mm diameter Venturer case. With neither logo nor indices, the effect is understated. The dial takes pride of place, making a statement of minimalist luxury which is immediately recognisable and unmistakeable.
