This year, H. Moser & Cie. introduced its new “Streamliner” line which quickly became a must-have model. Imbued with the fluidity of geometric curves and dynamic forms, this collection is characterised by the seamless integration of its steel bracelet with the cushion-shaped case. H. Moser & Cie. employs minimalism to perfectly enhance the resolutely innovative aesthetic of these models.
After the success of the Chronograph Flyback Automatic with a grey fumé dial and of its three-hand watch, H. Moser & Cie is unveiling the Streamliner Flyback Chronograph Automatic Funky Blue, featuring the now unmistakable eponymous dial.
In Haute Horlogerie, it is the details which make all the difference. With the Streamliner Flyback Chronograph Automatic Funky Blue, H. Moser & Cie. has created a piece which brings together harmonious proportions, fluid forms and high-end finishes, all presided over by this color which has become an iconic part of the manufacture’s palette: Funky Blue.
As with all models in the Streamliner collection, this chronograph has perfectly rounded curves, evoking the very first high-speed trains from the Twenties and Thirties whose name it adopts. The steel cushion case has a generous diameter of 42.3 mm and is water-resistant up to 12 atm. The bezel has a sunray brushed finish while the case boasts alternating brushed and polished surfaces.
Around the edge of the Funky Blue dial, the red and white outer track measures the seconds while the inner track counts the minutes. At midday, the 60 numeral dominates the dial, harking back to the stopwatches of the Sixties and Seventies, when legibility and functionality were key. Of course, for a chronograph, accuracy is everything: this is ensured by the choice of hands to measure the elapsed time, which have a thicker base and a fine tip, like those found on counters of measuring instruments. The hands are featuring inserts made from Globelight, an innovative ceramic-based material which contains Super-LumiNova. The dial is topped by a subtly domed Glasbox type sapphire crystal, echoed by the see-through case back.
As for the movement, the Streamliner Flyback Chronograph Automatic Funky Blue is equipped with a calibre developed by Agenhor, with support from the teams at H. Moser & Cie. The automatic movement works with 21.600 oscillations per hour, sports a double barrel and a power reserve of at least 54 hours.
The steel bracelet is extremely complex in design and has extremely fluid lines, based on organic forms. Its curves follow the lines of the wrist; the unique design of the links ensures that it sits perfectly even on the most slender of wrists.
