Introduced last year as a sly nod to the world’s bestselling smartwatch, the H. Moser & Cie. Swiss Alp Watch takes the concept even further with the “Zzzz” edition. Similar to the Moser Concept watches with unadorned dials, the Swiss Alp Watch Zzzz takes its cues from the Apple Watch in standby mode.
Two versions are available, the first with a plain black dial (ref. 5324-0207) that is dead ringer for the smartwatch, while the second has a Funky Blue dial (ref. 5324-0208) with a graduated metallic blue finish.
Both have an 18k white gold case that measures 38.2mm wide and 44mm long, making it slightly longer and definitely heftier than the Apple Watch.
The movement inside is the HMC 324, the brand’s top of the line time-only movement. It’s a hand-wound calibre with a four-day power reserve as well as the Moser interchangeable escapement. Constructed to be modular and easily replaced during servicing, the escapement also has the pallet fork and escape wheel made of hardened solid gold.
Price and availability
The Swiss Alp Watch Zzzz is a limited edition of 20 pieces with each dial, priced at US$26,900.
