The Heritage line by H. Moser & Cie. takes inspiration from the watches that evoke the brand’s history from 1828 to the present day, and specifically those dating from the early 20th century. The Swiss manufacture now expands this collection by unveiling the limited edition Heritage Perpetual Calendar Midnight Blue Enamel.
Showcasing the skills of master craftsmen, H. Moser & Cie. has chosen the classic rounded accents of the Heritage case to pay tribute to its perpetual calendar. Its Grand Feu enamel dial in brand new shades reinterprets the aesthetic of the brand’s famous fumé dials, with their subtle colour gradations.
The engraving and the enamel inserts adorning the sides of the case forge a link between past and present, between traditional and contemporary.
Reminiscent of the pocket watches converted to wristwatches in the early 1920s using fine attachments, this creation is largely inspired by vintage timepieces conceived by Heinrich Moser, founder of H. Moser & Cie. At the same time, it displays a resolutely contemporary character thanks to the use of striking midnight-blue fumé and a high-end manufacture movement.
The distinctive classicism of the Heritage Perpetual Calendar Midnight Blue Enamel is evident not only in its rounded case, but also in the notched crown and Grand Feu enamel dial with Roman numerals and swallow-tail hands. Every aspect of this exceptional piece has been created to exude elegance and refinement, with details such as the fine lugs and a railroad minute track enhancing its traditional character.
Visible behind the sapphire case-back, the HMC 800 movement is a masterpiece of simplicity and ingenuity. This hand-wound manufacture calibre can be adjusted forwards or backwards at any time of day.
Thanks to the “Flash Calendar” system, the date changes instantaneously at midnight, taking into account months with 30 or 31 days and the leap years. Decorated with the famous Moser double stripes, the calibre HMC 800 features a double barrel for a guaranteed power reserve of 7 days.
The Heritage Perpetual Calendar Midnight Blue Enamel is available in a limited edition of 20 pieces.
