The Heritage collection is undoubtedly traditional, with a look inspired by pocket watches which were converted into wristwatches in the early 1920s using fine attachments. With the Heritage Bronze “Since 1828” limited edition, H. Moser & Cie. is pushing this historical aspect even further, by adorning the fumé dial of this creation with its Cyrillic logo, as was occasionally used in the era of the company’s illustrious founder, Heinrich Moser. Deeply rooted in H. Moser & Cie., the Heritage Bronze “Since 1828” edition draws a subtle connection between past and present. A modern symbol of the Schaffhausen-based brand’s vast legacy, the Heritage Bronze “Since 1828” model perfectly represents H. Moser & Cie.: a modern and innovative Manufacture with a rich history dating back almost 200 years.
For the case of this model, H. Moser & Cie. uses bronze, a material that changes over time, becoming ever more beautiful as the patina develops. As no two cases will age alike, each ultimately becomes a unique piece. Showcasing a rounded design with classic touches, the case features tapered lugs and a large notched crown. The warm reflections of the bronze offer an interesting contrast with the cooler shades of the Blackor fumé dial, which features the H. Moser & Cie. Cyrillic logo.
Poised on the edge between tradition and modernity, H. Moser & Cie. sends ripples through this model’s classic design through a slightly eccentric choice of colours and materials. For a modern look, it is finished with a railway minute track in white, while the sword-shaped hands are accentuated with Super-LumiNova®. Meanwhile, the distinctive three-dimensional appliqué numerals use Globolight®, an innovative ceramic-based material that can assume any shape and any colour, and which contains Super-LumiNova®.
Visible behind the sapphire case-back, the HMC 200 movement is the driving force behind the Heritage Bronze “Since 1828” model. This calibre, entirely designed, developed and produced in-house, is equipped with a regulating organ manufactured by H. Moser & Cie.‘s sister company, Precision Engineering AG. Decorated with the famous Moser double stripes, the HMC 200 calibre offers a minimum power reserve of three days.
Launched at Dubai Watch Week, which takes place from November 24th to 28th, 2021, the Heritage Bronze “Since 1828” will be available exclusively online, on the sales platforms of H. Moser & Cie. and Seddiqi, partner and long-time friend of the brand.
H. Moser & Cie.’s own and unique take on Haute Horlogerie.
