Created for the brand’s Hong Kong retailer, the H. Moser Endeavour Dual Time Special Edition has an unusual monochromatic aesthetic, with a DLC-coated titanium case and matte ruthenium-plated dial.
H. Moser & Cie. timepieces are typically spare, offering the bare minimum but functional. Based on the Nomad, the new Endeavour Dual Time Special Edition strips even the colour from the timepiece, leaving behind a starkly simple timepiece. The Endeavour Dual Time Special Edition is comprised almost entirely of shades of grey, an aesthetic unusual for H. Moser, which tends towards a more classical palette of gold and silver tones.
The dial is finished with ruthenium plating, leaving it a matte dark grey. For contrast the indices and hands are polished black, while the home time hand is a dark red, offering the only touch of colour on the dial. When not in use the home time hand can be hidden under the hour hand, leaving the dial entirely black and grey. All the functions are set via the crown.
And the 40.8 mm case is polished titanium coated with diamond-like carbon (DLC), a finish used only for limited edition models and similar to that of the Moser Perpetual Black Edition. The movement is the HMC 346, an automatic with a 3 day power reserve. It’s equipped with the patented, interchangeable Moser modular escapement, for quicker service times. And the pallet fork and escape wheel are solid red gold, another feature reserved for limited edition Moesr timepieces. A variant of the same movement is used in the new Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time, Moser’s most complicated timepiece.
Only 20 of these will be made, available only at Elegant Watch & Jewellery in Hong Kong. The price will be 25,000 Swiss francs or 230,000 Hong Kong dollars.Back to top.
