Playing heavily on contrasts, H. Moser & Cie. has chosen innovative materials borrowed from the worlds of astrophysics and aerospace to return to the essence of one of the most complex and most traditional mechanisms in Haute Horlogerie.

Moser & Cie. presents the Endeavour Tourbillon Concept Vantablack®.
With elemental links to the H. Moser & Cie. brand, the Heritage Centre Seconds Funky Blue forges a subtle link between past and present, between tradition and modernity. Reminiscent of the pocket watches converted to wristwatches in the early 1920s using fine attachments, this creation is largely inspired by vintage timepieces conceived by Heinrich Moser, founder of H. Moser & Cie.
With the Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Aventurine model, H. Moser & Cie. lets you voyage deep into the Milky Way, bringing not just the moon to your wrist, but the stars as well!

The Venturer Concept Vantablack® Diamonds from H. Moser & Cie. marries the purity of white gold and the brilliance of diamonds with the deepest black of a dial made from Vantablack®, an innovative material used in astrophysics.

It adopts a resolutely minimalist aesthetic, effortlessly elegant thanks to its pared-down dial.

A twirling minute repeater with a flying tourbillon, highlighting the "ballet dance" performed by the complex mechanism to chime the hours: on the Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon from H. Moser & Cie., the two chimes and the hammers on the minute repeater can be admired on the dial side.
The Venturer Concept Vantablack® from H. Moser & Cie. combines the warm, gentle tones of 5N red gold with an ultra-black dial made from Vantablack®, an innovative material used in astrophysics. The Schaffhausen-based Manufacture plays on the contrast between a high-tech material, which must be handled delicately, and a model with a neo-vintage look.
Unlike most other calendars which change gradually, an H. Moser Flash Calendar is very rare in that it changes from one date to the next in a fraction of a second. This is a feature the Monard Big Date and the Perpetual Calendar share. The Flash Calendar is particularly impressive and useful on the Perpetual Calendar, as the date instantaneously changes at midnight to the correct date, even on short months such as February.
Our Perpetual Calendar is best known for its simple design. This is possible in part due to the ingenious display for the month: a short central arrow hand uses the hour indices to indicate the month. This exceptional solution led the Perpetual Calendar to be recognised at the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix in 2006.
All of our watches featuring a date, or a second time zone, have a Double Pull Crown. This smart, simple feature allows the crown to be pulled out in two stages, the first for adjusting the date or second time zone, the second for stopping the movement and setting the time. With this function, the watch continues to indicate the correct hour, minute and second without interruption when adjusting the date or additional displays.
The incorporation of a Hacking Seconds into our movements is an ingenious feature, which enables the watch to be set precisely to the second. The seconds hand remains stationary when the crown is pulled out to adjust the time ; and starts moving again the instant the crown is pushed in.
The interchangeable Moser escapement module is one of our cleverest features; developed to simplify the adjustment, cleaning and servicing of the watch. It enables the watchmaker to remove the existing escapement module, clean and oil the rest of the movement before installing a new pre-adjusted module.
We are remarkable for offering several models with a 7-day power reserve, a valuable asset in a mechanical watch of this calibre. This is achieved by the use of two barrels in the movement. The actual winding springs are made from the unbreakable and self-lubricating material Nivaflex. Our power reserve indicators are on the movement side of most of our watches, visible through the sapphire crystal case-back.
In 2005, Heinrich Moser’s great-grandson, Roger Nicholas Balsiger, joined forces with Dr. Jurgen Lange and Thomas Straumann to re-establish H. Moser & Cie. in the canton of Schaffhausen with a new Manufacture. In 2012, the Meylan family, with a rich heritage in fine watchmaking, brought its invaluable experience to the company. Its chairman, Georges-Henri Meylan, a man with uncommon entrepreneurial vision, believes that by investing in Swiss watch manufacturers of rare quality, he can build an independent watch group which not only benefits those involved at present, but also future generations. This vision is shared by his son, Edouard Meylan, who is the CEO of H. Moser & Cie.
In 1829, to guarantee the quality of watches bearing his name, Henrich Moser built a factory in Le Locle – a centre of Swiss watchmaking excellence. Aged just 43 he returned to Schaffhausen, a prosperous watch manufacturer and merchant where he contributed to the industrial expansion of the region. His pioneering spirit and entrepreneurial zeal saw him contribute to many other fields in addition to running H. Moser & Cie. Most notable was the completion (in 1864) of the largest dam in Switzerland at the time, situated on the Rhine near Schaffhausen.
Heinrich Moser was born in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, in 1805. Both his grandfather, Johannes, and his father, Erhard, were watchmakers of the highest calibre. Heinrich was the beneficiary of their rare knowledge, quickly becoming an expert watchmaker in Le Locle. It wasn’t long before his remarkable artistic skill gained him international respect, and at the age of just 21, he set up on his own. In 1828, Heinrich’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to St. Petersburg where he founded H. Moser & Cie. The company’s rare and exquisite creations were soon gracing the wrists of Russian princes and members of the Imperial Court. They even sold movements to other companies; most of Fabergé’s table clocks were equipped with movements produced by H. Moser & Cie.
