THE PIONEER CENTRE SECONDS FUNKY BLUE BLACK EDITION GOES ON A WORLD TOUR

Neuhausen am Rheinfall, July 8th, 2019

Pioneer by name, Pioneer by nature, the Pioneer Centre Seconds Funky Blue Black Edition is a watch with wanderlust. Sapphire to the wrist, oceanic Funky Blue fumé to the sky, its technical specifications make it a worldly travel companion. Packed like a pro in a slick yet sturdy case of jet black DLC (Diamond-Like-Carbon) steel, this adventurous beauty is ‘gearing up’ to accompany real-life Pioneers around the world for a whole year.

A very special launch for a very special watch: The Pioneer Tour

 

For the launch of one of their boldest watches yet, H. Moser & Cie. has gone a little bit wild. To understand the marvel that is the Pioneer Centre Seconds Funky Blue Black Edition, they want real pioneers to experience it. There’s no replacement for the thrill of putting this beauty on the wrist. So, this month, H. Moser & Cie. is lending the Pioneer Centre Seconds Funky Blue Black Edition to lucky guardians, who will accompany it on an adventure around the globe for one year – with no route planned whatsoever. Because a real adventure demands that spontaneous bit of magic.

 

One year. One epic odyssey. Countless destinations.

 

H. Moser & Cie. will start the adventure by lending the Pioneer to a friend and fellow watch-lover. And from then on, the rest is up to chance. The friend will hand it over to someone of their choice, after which it will be passed from watchlover to watchlover… destination (and connoisseur) unknown.

 

Each person will keep the watch for a week, photographing the Pioneer on their wrist against a captivating view of their location, and sharing them with the world. And then the Pioneer will be set free to roam once again – never resting long in one place, always on the road (or in the air…or underwater…).

 

The community will be able to track the journey of the Pioneer Centre Seconds Funky Blue Black Edition on a dedicated landing page, as well as on Instagram @moserwatches under the hashtag #PioneerTour. Subscribers will receive H. Moser & Cie. newsletters with a recap of all the Pioneers’ adventures, and insider information about watchmaking and special product features.

 

A closer look at the Pioneer Centre Seconds Funky Blue Black Edition

 

H. Moser & Cie. has encased their all-terrain model, the Pioneer, with a layer of DLC (Diamond-Like-Carbon) in pitch black. Under the domed sapphire crystal sits an iconic Moser fumé dial in stunning Funky Blue – a first for the Pioneer collection. The hour markers and hands, in luminescent Superluminova®, glimmer like stars in the night sky.

 

But looks aren’t everything. Behind its midnight-hued exterior, the Pioneer Centre Seconds Funky Blue Black Edition boasts an HMC 200 movement – an in-house caliber with a Straumann® Hairspring, beating at 21,600 vibrations per hour. Equipped with a bi-directional pawl winding system, and a power reserve of more than three days, this newest member of the Pioneer family is ready for everyday adventures or world-wide odysseys. Water resistant up to 120 metres with a versatile black rubber strap, it’s even fit to sail the seven seas.
