H. Moser & Cie. Venturer Small Seconds with Ardoise Fumé Dial

Swiss luxury watch maker H. Moser & Cie. is renowned for its fumé dials, which form an integral part of its identity. Whether in blue fumé, red-gold fumé or its signature variant – rhodium-plated fumé – these dials are the perfect adornment for H. Moser creations. In 2015, H. Moser & Cie. is introducing a new dial – ardoise fumé –which is naturally paired with the Venturer in a white gold version. Fresh and dynamic, the sportiest of the fumé dials from H. Moser & Cie. brings an air of elegance and refinement when teamed with the beautifully rounded case of the Venturer Small Seconds.

This latest Venturer Small Seconds model created by H. Moser & Cie. features a white gold case and an ardoise fumé dial. Clearly identifiable, the fumé dials which take centre stage in Moser creations have become the brand’s hallmark. To create these miniature works of art, H. Moser & Cie. has been partnering with the best dial-makers for generations. The product of tried-and-tested techniques and a complex production process, each dial is machined traditionally, coloured and finally finished by hand to achieve the subtle sunburst pattern which gives the colour its nuances and intensity. For this Venturer Small Seconds, H. Moser & Cie. has created a brand new dial which blends the dynamic, contemporary appeal of ardoise, with the complexity of the fumé dial: the result is a piece with timeless beauty, bringing a new and modern twist to a classic look. A black alligator strap – with a carbon-effect matte finish – adds a sporty touch to this decidedly unconventional timepiece.

Under its ardoise fumé dial, the Venturer Small Seconds hides a hand-wound calibre HMC 327 manufacture movement, guaranteeing an impressive power reserve of 3 to 5 days. Designed, developed and produced entirely in-house, this movement has been created with the same attention to detail and quality as the dial, demonstrating the craftsmanship of the best artisan watchmakers.
