Like we all know, H. Moser & Cie. enjoys combining design cues to create an unexpected effect and thus the traditional now and then becomes surprisingly sexy. Today we introduce a new model from the Swiss manufacturer – the Endeavour Tourbillon Concept.
For this watch, Moser & Cie. has extracted the essence of the complex, technically and aesthetically appealing mechanism to emphasize the visual impact of the tourbillon. The minimalist effect of the Endeavour Toubillon Concept is enhanced because the watch only shows hours and minutes – no seconds and for sure no date. With this timepiece, H. Moser & Cie. has responded to a real need: the desire to return back to basics, a desire for authenticity.

And it works: the eye-catching flying tourbillon takes center stage in the pared-back dial; appearing to float weightless. The dial which provides the perfect background for the tourbillon, is one of the famous “Funky Blue” ones we fell in love with the very first time H. Moser & Cie. introduced it.  Which is not surprising, when you look at the color in combination with the beautiful sunburst pattern.
H. Moser & Cie. pared the dial with  a white gold case which boasts a diameter of 42 mm.

Behind the skeleton bridge of the tourbillon, the lastest movement, created by H. Moser & Cie., can be seen. It’s the HMC804, an automatic calibre with a three-day power reserve. Powering this movement, the oscillating weight transfers the energy to the barrel via a bi-directional pawl winding system which reduces the time required to fully wind the watch. Made from red gold, the oscillating weight is skeletonized to reveal the mechanism beneath, which can be seen through the sapphire case back.
And, in addition, the tourbillon’s unique design makes it an interchangeable module, assembled and regulated independently of the movement via a simple plug and play system which allows easy servicing. The result is a tourbillon better adapted to the needs of early 21st century users.

By associating it with the refined simplicity of the H. Moser fumé dials in their Concept style, without logo or indices, the Endeavour Tourbillon Concepts represents an elegant yet contemporary reworking of the tourbillon. Only the essence remains: 100% traditional Swiss watchmaking, resolutely contemporary and utterly seductive.
The Endeavour Tourbillon Concept comes with a hand-stitched kudu leather strap.

This watch is limited to 20 pieces.
