H. Moser & Cie. has made a perpetual calendar movement displaying month and day of the month for the first time in its history.
The HMC 808 hand-wound movement with a double barrel delivering at least 7 days of power, is used in two 50-piece limited editions named the Pioneer Perpetual Calendar MD.
Such a high end complication would typically be housed in precious metal timepieces that make only rare appearances on the wrist, but H. Moser says it wants its 42.8mm steel watch, which is water resistant to 120 meters, to be wearable every day.
The company describes its Pioneer collection, first seen in 2015, as watches “imbued with a pioneering, adventurous spirit”.
As well as being waterproof, the watch is also easy to live with thanks to an architecture that allows its time to be moved forwards and backwards at any time of day without damaging the movement or affecting the date, which will not need changing for over a decade.
Two models are being launched, one with a Burgundy fume dial, and another in blue, both with hours minutes, a small seconds subdial and a large double aperture date display.
Both are on sale now for $39,000.
They are worn on an alligator leather or black rubber strap.
H. Moser & Cie is represented in the United States by some of the country’s most prestigious retailers including Westime, Shreve Crump & Low, Exquisite Timepieces and Cellini.
