H. Moser isn’t just known for mak­ing mil­lion-dol­lar watches out of Swiss cheese (as fa­mously seen at this year’s SIHH) – the watch­maker also knows how to cre­ate clas­sic, no-fuss time­pieces that are sim­ply bril­liant in their qual­ity and ex­e­cu­tion. The Pi­o­neer Centre Sec­onds Au­to­matic fea­tures a deep mid­night-blue fumé dial, faceted in­dices and par­tially skele­tonised hands. At the heart of the watch beats the pro­pri­etary HMC 200 move­ment.

The plat­inum model of this watch was re­leased last year – and it has now been fol­lowed by a sec­ond ver­sion in pink gold, in a lim­ited edi­tion of 100 watches. The Richard Lange Jump­ing Sec­onds puts the sec­onds mea­sure­ment in the spot­light, where a blued sec­onds hand ad­vances along the largest cir­cle in 60 steps per minute. A con­stant-force es­cape­ment was de­vel­oped to de­liver the switch­ing im­pulse for the sec­onds jump; it also pow­ers the watch for 42 hours.
