THE PIONEER CENTRE SECONDS MEGA COOL: WHEN TRADITION GOES ULTRA ON-TREND
Neuhausen am Rheinfall, April 6th, 2021
When the prototype for this new Pioneer was unveiled in the H. Moser & Cie. workshops, one thing could be heard – in unison, of course, Swiss style! - and that was: "MEGA Cool"! This very Swiss German expression needs no translation in English, it simply means: the coolest of the cool! And so, the Pioneer Centre Seconds MEGA Cool was christened. The perfect ally for every situation, and any circumstance, the Pioneer Centre Seconds MEGA Cool has a flexible, fun side that allows it to be paired at will with a steel bracelet or a leather, rubber or even textile strap. Featuring a steel case water-resistant to 12 ATM, it is graced with the Blue Lagoon fumé dial, in shades of turquoise evoking the waters of paradise islands. It guarantees legibility as well as comfort, thanks to the Super-LumiNova® elements adorning its flange and hands.
Refreshing. Striking. The Pioneer MEGA Cool deserves its name and heralds fine days ahead. Its dial is the captivating colour of tropical oceans. The transparent lacquer H. Moser & Cie. logo, affixed at 12 o'clock, is the height of discretion; with subtlety and elegance, the brand tones down its presence to give full freedom of expression to the piece. Featuring anthracite grey faceted applique indices topped with Super-LumiNova® markers, the Pioneer MEGA Cool has three-dimensional hands made from two sections, overlaid with strips of Globolight®, an innovative ceramic-based material which contains Super-LumiNova®. Emphasising legibility and comfort in its contemporary understated style, it is paired with a technically advanced textile strap.
The epitome of elegant, modern watchmaking, the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture creates timepieces that are classic but never dull, elegant with a hint of sexiness, refined with more than a little irreverence. H. Moser & Cie. opens up a world of independent watchmaking for those seeking a watch that follows the rules of Haute Horlogerie; traditional without being too proper, with a timeless aesthetic worlds away from the type of watch your grandfather would wear.
At the heart of the Pioneer MEGA Cool model beats the HMC 200 movement. Designed, developed and produced in-house, this calibre is equipped with a regulating organ manufactured by H. Moser & Cie.'s sister company, Precision Engineering AG. Decorated with the famous Moser double stripes on the bridges and the main plate, and housing a large engraved oscillating weight, the calibre HMC 200 is 100% Swiss, 100% Moser, and boasts a power reserve of at least three days. Radiant, joyful, and ready to face any challenge, the Pioneer MEGA Cool is the perfect watch for grabbing life with both hands. The ultimate feel-good watch, it is the perfect partner for going out, travelling, sports, trips to the beach... in short, any activity the wearer could dream of, on land or even underwater, as it is water-resistant to 12 ATM.
H. Moser & Cie.’s own and unique take on Haute Horlogerie.
