SIHH is a good time for some reasons. It’s an extraordinary spot to find our kindred columnists from everywhere the world. It’s likewise incredible to experience the current year’s buzz from the Richemont brands. To wrap things up SIHH is an astonishing encounter for fanatics of the free thinkers. These brands often have restricted promoting spending plans compared to the large names like Cartier, Panerai or Audemars Piguet (additionally autonomous obviously). They don’t often arrange enormous occasions, and press roadshows around the planet. Thus, seeing them and really their entire staff together in one spot is pretty much uncommon. More significant than that, obviously, are the oddities they are bringing to the show every year. H.Moser & Cie is among those exceptional brands. Also, what they brought to the show this year worked up the water. I’m discussing the Blue Lagoon of course.
H.Moser & Cie
Who has not heard the name Moser previously? No, I don’t mean investigator Richard Moser (played by Austria’s incredible Tobias Moretti) in the religion TV arrangement Rex: A Cop’s Best Friend. I’m discussing a cutting-edge, youthful watch brand from Switzerland, directly across the boundary from Germany, in Schaffhausen. You need to recollect 4 dates; 1805 Henrik Moser is naturally introduced to a watchmaking family who builds up the brand in 1828 in St. Petersburg, Russia (indeed, you read it right). 2005, H.Moser & Cie (as far as we might be concerned today) is restored and gets back to Schaffhausen. Ultimately, 2012 is the point at which the Meylan Family assumes control over the brand beginning another period both for Moser and for the free watch industry. A great deal of things occurred in the middle, which we may discuss at some other point. For the time being, we should remain with the last date and the Meylan family.
The Meylan family has 1,000 connections to the watch business. In any case, that, though helpful and gainful, is all before. Edouard Meylan, CEO of H.Moser & Cie, notwithstanding, isn’t somebody who is investigating the past. Or maybe into what’s to come. He is an alluring and youthful pioneer, somebody who appears to have a response for everything. Edouard is additionally a lovely person to be near, despite the fact that his outward appearance may make you suspect something – sorry Edouard, I’m similar to that as well so know how it is. Under his authority, the brand put foot on a way that is challenging and not quite the same as numerous others in this industry. After a seemingly endless amount of time after year they bring something exceptional, something else both as an idea watch and part of their assortment. Moser does this while as yet remaining consistent with their plan. Their 2019 SIHH curiosity, the H.Moser & Cie Blue Lagoon is such a timepiece.
Endeavour Center Seconds Concept Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon watches I had the opportunity to find in Geneva this previous month are important for the Endeavor assortment. There’s a qualification between the standard Endeavor models and Concept pieces. As you can see by the title, the Blue Lagoon falls under the last classification. Idea H. Moser & Cie pieces are unadulterated Haute Horlogerie watches with no logo, numerals or some other signs on the dial. There’s no requirement for that. The watch, its looks, and configuration represent. Itself. Moser’s mark, fumé dial, is the principle component of the Endeavor Center Seconds Concept Blue Lagoon. Fumé dials have an extraordinary sparkle, cleaned, silk completed look with sunburst design. The Blue Lagoon’s tone is turquoise, that looks blue from one point and green from another. As per Moser the Blue Lagoon’s face is “inspiring the waters of the jungles”. Can’t concur more. It is a hypnotizing tone indeed.
While the fumé dial is verifiably the most conspicuous component of the Endeavor Center Seconds Concept Blue Lagoon, its case is additionally something particular. At 40mm in width and just 10.7mm in thickness, the watch is scarcely viewed as enormous. Without a doubt 40mm isn’t little, yet as Moser puts it, the Blue Lagoon is a “strong, provocative and contemporary” watch. One can pick between 2 case materials, both in valuable metal; white or red gold, both in 18k. The white gold is reference 1200-0206 in spite of the fact that on the off chance that you extravagant a smidgen more “bling” and need to go for the red gold rendition you need to search for reference 1200-0404. I’m an unpretentious person so my variant is the white gold. Despite the fact that I need to say that the Blue Lagoon’s tone is to such an extent that works impeccably with the two golds. Other than the materials the two references are indistinguishable in looks, sizes or movement.
Speaking of developments. As you’d anticipate from a Haute Horlogerie watch, the H. Moser & Cie Blue Lagoon has a production development. It is a type that is planned, created and delivered altogether in-house. This is conceivable with the assistance of Precision Engineering AG, a sister company of H. Moser & Cie. The HMC 200 is a self-twisting type with at least 3 days of force hold, programmed bi-directional pawl-winding framework and a recurrence of 21,600 vph. The development has 27 gems, finished with the supposed Moser Stripes. A licensed adornment by H. Moser & Cie like Geneva stripes, Moser Stripes where thicker and more slender lines follow one another. The HMC has straightforward capacities; it shows the hours and minutes with a focal seconds hand.
The H. Moser & Cie Endeavor Center Seconds Concept Blue Lagoon comes on a hand-sewed dark (white gold) or cognac earthy colored (red gold) gator calfskin lash with a coordinating pin clasp. The presentation case back permits us to see the delightful HMC 200 type moving. The cost of the watch will be €21,000. Moser will deliver various 50 pieces in both case materials. While my inclination requires a smidgen more plan than a super moderate piece, like this one, I positively can comprehend Moser’s point of view that went into the Blue Lagoon. It is anything but a regular watch, not that you would come across numerous Moser watches in your day by day life. It’s an assertion piece for the brand, something they delivered for the specialists who purchase Moser for the sheer style and craftsmanship. For that, notwithstanding, it is an ideal choice.
