H. Moser & Cie

Revolution (Hong Kong) - - SIHH 2017 - TEXT BY MELISSA LIM

Con­tin­u­ing down the path of minimalism and op­ti­mal leg­i­bil­ity, H. Moser & Cie has given its En­deav­our Per­pet­ual Cal­en­dar Pu­rity a sig­nif­i­cant makeover. The mys­te­ri­ous smoky blue fumé dial pro­vides a solid back­drop for the white gold hour and minute mark­ers to stand out, as well as a large date dis­play at 3 o’clock, smalls sec­onds sub­dial at 6 o’clock and power re­serve in­di­ca­tor at 9 o’clock. The star of the show is, in true Moser fash­ion, kept al­most hid­den; a tiny cen­ter per­pet­ual cal­en­dar hand can be set for­wards or back­wards at any time, in­di­cat­ing the month. There is also no sign of any logo or brand­ing. A tiny step up from 40.8mm to 42mm, the now larger white gold case al­lows for the sig­na­ture de­sign codes to still shine through, while of­fer­ing a profile view ex­press­ing the minimalism and crafts­man­ship of the lugs, slop­ing bezel and curves case back. The hand-wound cal­iber HMC 800 re­mains the same, adapted to fit the new case size, and boasts a full seven days of power re­serve.
