Introducing the H. Moser & Cie. Venturer XL Concept Dubai Edition

Perhaps the most unusual dial ever made by the watchmaker in a striking, graduated pale blue.

Striking and particularly photogenic, H. Moser & Cie.‘s Concept watches are ruthlessly pared down but always vividly coloured. Now the concept (no pun intended) takes an unusual twist with a nine-piece limited edition made for Dubai retailer Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons.

Just unveiled at Dubai Watch Week 2017, the Venturer XL Concept Dubai Edition features a baby blue fumé dial. Characteristic of the fumé finish that’s a Moser favourite, the dial colour starts out extremely pale in the centre, so light as to be almost silver, gradually darkening towards the edge of the dial.

Just as on the other Venturer models, the dial is slightly convex for a faint vintage feel. And to improve legibility the hands are painted glossy black, instead of the polished rhodium finish usually applied.

The rest of the watch is identical to the ordinary Venturer XL. The steel case is 43mm in diameter, while the movement is the HMC 327, a hand wound calibre with a three day power reserve.

Price and availability 

The Venturer XL Concept Dubai Edition (ref. 2327-1204) is limited to nine watches available only at Seddiqi stores in Dubai. It’s priced at SFr18,000.
