H. MOSER & CIE
WHO THEY ARE Swiss-born Heinrich Moser, who came from a watchmaking family, started his business in St Petersburg in Russia in 1828, and opened a factory in Le Locle in 1829. After surviving changing fortunes, the brand was revived in 2002. CLAIM TO FAME Moser has pioneered several key innovations, including a double-pull crown for accurate selection of functions, interchangeable escapement module that shortens the time needed to service a Moser watch (2005) and improved helical spring (2007).
WHAT’S HOT The Mayu, refreshed this year with a rose gold case accompanied by a new rose gold-coloured dial that is suitable for both men and women. The in-house handwound movement boasts a power reserve of at least 72 hours. RETAILS AT The Hour Glass, L’Atelier by The Hour Glass, Malmaison by The Hour Glass, More Passion by The Hour Glass
