H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Funky Blue and Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Tutorial

Complicated yet simple, the H. Moser & Cie. Perpetual Calendar was created in 2005. Easy to read and set, it can be adjusted both forwards and backwards at any time of the day.

In 2015, H. Moser & Cie. unveiled the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Funky Blue, which contributed to the brand’s revival while establishing its new aesthetic codes – a bold blend of the traditional and modern.

In 2022, H. Moser & Cie. is launching an updated version of the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Funky Blue, measuring 42 mm and featuring the brand’s logo in transparent lacquer.

To mark this event, and to aid those who may still wonder how their perpetual calendar works, H. Moser & Cie. is creating a very special commemorative limited edition which showcases the ingenious technical characteristics of the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar.

An iconic piece, the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar model by H. Moser & Cie. is known for its complex movement, which nevertheless boasts unrivalled ease of use. No hard-to-read sub-dial or date disc: the indices display not only the hours, but also the months, using a small hand in the centre.

A very large date window at 3 o’clock, with the “Flash Calendar” function providing an instant date change at midnight, and a power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock displaying the movement’s seven days of autonomy, complete the piece. The time and date are easy to set using the screw-down crown and can be changed at any time of the day.

Virtually all perpetual calendars on the market require careful handling, with strict adherence to every step of their very precise instructions. This leaves many customers reluctant to take them out of their box and tackle this time-consuming process – and too afraid to risk changing the date. H. Moser & Cie. has revolutionised the perpetual calendar by transforming a complication designed for the most discerning of collectors into a watch that even a child could operate.

The Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Funky Blue model was released in 2015 to mark the brand’s revival. Today, H. Moser & Cie. is revisiting this piece in a 42 mm version with a logo applied in transparent lacquer, as a reminder that authentic luxury goes beyond any artifice and that the fumé dial – the brand’s iconic signature – speaks for itself.

As for the very special series, this true “perpetual calendar for dummies” takes the piece in the opposite direction to the minimalist philosophy habitually cultivated by H. Moser & Cie., which the pared-down dial and intuitive functions of the perpetual calendar illustrate perfectly.

In a creative undertaking demonstrating the offbeat humour of H. Moser & Cie., the dial of the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar has been scrawled with notes and drawings which encapsulate the features of this movement.
