H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept X seconde/seconde/ Limited Edition

H. Moser & Cie. has collaborated with Parisian artist seconde/seconde/ to create a new limited edition Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept watch.

H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept X seconde/seconde/ Limited Edition

In 2015, H. Moser & Cie. decided to pursue ultimate minimalism, removing the logo from its Concept dials, and turning understatement and fumé dials into an iconic signature. This return to the essential, embodying a bold yet human luxury, was designed to shine the spotlight away from the brand, and back onto the product and the expertise.

By giving the timepiece back its primary function, H. Moser & Cie. demonstrates that a genuine luxury product can be identified immediately, even without a logo, thereby proving that a true connoisseur buys a watch for its intrinsic value and not for its branding. Like a bridge between the past and present, the Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept model is also a reminder that, in the early days of watchmaking, only the movement was sometimes signed.

In this new Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept watch, the traditional hour-hand has been replaced with a vividly coloured and pixelated hand in the shape of an eraser. This radical interpretation by seconde/seconde/ lends an irreverent and ironically poetic edge to this classic piece of craftsmanship.

Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept X seconde/seconde/ Limited EditionAt the heart of its steel case beats the self-winding calibre HMC 200, a manufacture movement entirely designed and created by H. Moser & Cie. Its regulating organ was manufactured by H. Moser & Cie.’s sister company, Precision Engineering AG, using expertise that very few manufactures can claim to have in-house.

The Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept X seconde/seconde/ model is released as a limited edition of 20 pieces. It will only be available on the H. Moser & Cie. website. Each piece will be accompanied by an exclusive numbered work by seconde/seconde/.
