Complexity made simple: The H. Moser & Cie. perpetual calendar, which was introduced in 2005 and is widely regarded as the easiest to read and set on the market because it can be adjusted forwards and backward at any time of day, is based on this idea.
H. Moser & Cie. debuted the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Funky Blue in 2015, contributing to the brand’s resurgence while establishing its new aesthetic codes – a striking blend of the traditional and modern. H. Moser & Cie. will release a new version of the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Funky Blue in 2022, which will measure 42 mm and have a transparent lacquer logo.
To commemorate the occasion and to help those who may still be unsure how their perpetual calendar works, H. Moser & Cie. has created a special commemorative limited edition that highlights the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar’s ingenious technical characteristics by transforming its normally minimalist dial into a “cheat sheet.”
The Endeavour Perpetual Calendar model by H. Moser & Cie. is a classic timepiece with a complicated movement that offers unrivalled ease of use. There is no difficult-to-read sub-dial or date disc; instead, the indexes use a little hand in the centre to indicate not only the hours but also the months. The piece is completed by a big date window at 3 o’clock, with the “Flash Calendar” function giving an instant date change at midnight, and a power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock, which shows the movement’s seven days of autonomy.
The screw-down crown makes setting the time and date simple, and it may be done at any time of day. Almost all perpetual calendars on the market necessitate cautious handling and meticulous adherence to each step of their extremely detailed instructions. Many customers are hesitant to remove them from their boxes and begin this time-consuming process, fearful of changing the date. H. Moser & Cie. has reinvented the perpetual calendar by turning a complexity created for the most discerning collectors into a watch that even a child can manage.
To commemorate the brand’s rebirth, the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Funky Blue model was produced in 2015. Today, H. Moser & Cie. is reissuing this watch in a 42-mm version with a clear lacquer logo as a reminder that genuine luxury transcends all artifice and that the brand’s iconic fumé dial speaks for itself.
In terms of the extremely special series, this actual “perpetual calendar for dummies” goes in the opposite direction of H. Moser & Cieminimalist .’s philosophy, which the perpetual calendar’s pared-down dial and intuitive features fully depict. The dial of the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar has been scratched with notes and sketches that encapsulate the elements of this movement, such as the mnemonic techniques utilised by the class dunce, in a creative endeavour displaying the eccentric humour of H. Moser & Cie.
