H. Moser & Cie. expands its Concept Series by launching Endeavour Concept Guilloché, a limited edition timepiece that features a hand-guillochéd fumé dial highlighting a beautiful re-interpretation of famed sunburst pattern. Further, this contemporary model boasts an understated, minimalist design that remains true to the Concept Series philosophy: no logos, no indices.
Unveiled at SIHH 2017, the Endeavour Concept Guilloché Limited Edition from H. Moser & Cie. draws inspiration from a late-19th century pocket watch that was created by Heinrich Moser, the founder of the company. Reproducing the subtle guilloché work on this historic watch was a task that could only be undertaken by a master guilloche craftsman.
The absence of both logo and indices emphasises the beauty and exquisite design of the dial on this watch, which forms part of the Concept Series. In contrast to the increasingly elaborate watchmaking available today, H. Moser & Cie. has chosen to forgo the typical marketing and let the watch and its creators speak for themselves, once again proving that true luxury is unmistakable and needs no artifice.
The Endeavour case in rose or white gold — available with or without a diamond-set bezel — amplifies the effect of the guilloché design, bringing the vibrant sky-blue colour to life. The strap in alligator leather for the rose gold model and in satin for the white gold model uses the same colour palette, creating a contemporary, monochrome effect. The rose gold model is limited to 10 pieces, while the white gold model with a diamond-set bezel is not limited, adding a sensual, seductive note to the H. Moser & Cie. collection.
As with all new models produced from January 1st, 2017, this watch will not feature the Swiss Made label on the dial as the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture, whose creations are over 95% Swiss, does not consider the label sufficiently rigorous.
