H. Moser & Cie. pays tribute to the Heritage Bronze 1828. This collection is unmistakably traditional, with a design inspired by pocket watches that were converted to wristwatches using fine attachments in the early 1920s.
H. Moser & Cie. is pushing this historical element even further with the Heritage Bronze “Since 1828” limited edition, by gracing the fumé dial of this masterpiece with its Cyrillic logo, as was infrequently employed during the era of the company’s legendary founder, Heinrich Moser. The Heritage Bronze “Since 1828” edition, which is deeply anchored in H. Moser & Cie., creates a delicate link between past and present. It’s a modern representation of the Schaffhausen-based brand’s broad tradition, perfectly depicts H. Moser & Cie., a modern and inventive Manufacture with a rich history extending back almost 200 years. Let’s dive into the details…
H. Moser & Cie. employs bronze for this model, a material that evolves and becomes more attractive as the patina develops. Because no two cases age, in the same way, each one becomes a one-of-a-kind piece. The case has tapered lugs and a broad notched crown, and it has a rounded style with classic elements.
The bronze’s warm reflections contrast nicely with the cooler tones of the Blackor fumé dial, which bears the H. Moser & Cie. Cyrillic emblem. H. Moser & Cie. sends ripples through this model’s traditional design with a little unusual mix of colours and materials, poised on the edge of tradition and modernity. It’s finished with a white railway minute track for a contemporary style, and the sword-shaped hands are highlighted with Super-LumiNova®. Meanwhile, Globolight®, a new ceramic-based material that can assume any shape, is used to create the unusual three-dimensional appliqué numerals.
The HMC 200 movement, visible behind the sapphire caseback, is the heart of the Heritage Bronze “Since 1828” model. This calibre, which was wholly planned, developed, and built in-house, is equipped with a regulating organ made by Precision Engineering AG, a sister business of H. Moser & Cie. The HMC 200 calibre has a minimum power reserve of three days and is decorated with the distinctive Moser double stripes.
The Heritage Bronze “Since 1828” will be available exclusively online, on the sales platforms of H. Moser & Cie. and Seddiqi, a long-time friend and partner of the business, from November 24th to November 28th, 2021.
