An Adventurer’s Guide to the Galaxy – from the Moon to the Milky Way

Shoot for the moon – and reach for the stars – with our new Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Aventurine.

With this stunning new addition to the Endeavour family, you can now hold the galaxy in the palm of your hand (or on your wrist). The mystery of the stars, the magnetism of the moon, and the wonder of the Milky Way meet the infinite precision of Moser watchmaking in this latest model.

For the Dreamers

At the 6 o’clock position, a silvery moon waxes and wanes within a beautifully proportioned, streamlined window.  In an ode to purity, the Concept dial is stripped of indices or logo – to give the moon pride of place within its miniature galaxy. Our signature Perpetual Moon Phase is clear, elegant, and almost unparalleled in accuracy – with just one day’s deviation, every 1027 years.  That’s right: once a Millenium, this work of art needs a little adjustment (you can leave the instructions to your descendants: just use a simple push-button located on the case flank). 

For the Adventurers

A mini-milky-way is revealed in our velvet-deep midnight blue Aventurine dial, subtly twinkling with brilliant ‘stars’ that mirror the constellations of the night sky.  According to folklore, aventurine is symbolic of prosperity and perseverance, combined with compassion  – while its name is derived from the Italian word ‘avventura’, meaning ‘adventure’ or ‘chance’.  All in all, a material perfectly suited to our bold Endeavour and its dreamy, romantic moon.  

For the Chosen Few

The Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Aventurine is a rare treasure, with only 50 pieces made in each of two case models: one in warm 5N red gold and another in cool steel.  Each metal further magnifies the beauty of the shimmering dial, while an alligator leather strap completes the dream – black accenting the red gold model, and midnight blue paired with steel. Tailor your Endeavour to your state of mind, your star sign, or your suit; the choice is yours. 

For the Wanderers

Powered by an HMC 801 hand-wound Manufacture calibre, and fitted with an interchangeable Moser escapement, this Endeavour has a minimum 7-day power reserve – perfectly suited to an adventurer with places to be (and galaxies far-far-away to discover).  But keep an eye on those control panels, lest you swerve into an oncoming comet; this elegant example of pure poetry in watch-form is sure to leave you more than a little starstruck.

Martina Egy

Meet Martina Egy– with her famously dexterous fingers all but permanently attached to a pair of specialised tweezers, our deputy head of watchmaking is a perpetual calendar whizz, and a real artist of engineering.

Vantablack® Beauty: Meet the Endeavour Tourbillon Concept Vantablack®.

If you’re a true Moser Pioneer (aka you’ve been following Pioneer Chronicles for a while), you’re probably familiar with the modern miracle that is Vantablack®. But our latest creation, a Concept design that’s minimal enough to be mistaken for modern art yet ambitious enough for an astronaut, is flying to new heights. 

Chapter Four
Keeping the Legacy Alive – Moser in the World of Watchmaking Today

In Chapter Four, we discuss what a time-travelling Heinrich would make of Moser’s revival, and the world of Swiss watchmaking today. Mr. Balsiger explains why Social Responsibility is a watch-word both behind the scenes and on the public stage at Moser. And why a timepiece covered in moss is making headlines. You can also catch up with Chapters One to Three here. 

Stephan Christ

One of only 60 Spring-Masters in the world, you might imagine Stephan Christ would be somewhat ‘tightly-wound’. In fact, his impressive patience is the stuff of legend. Stephan takes precision to the next level, tuning the details of the details and minutiae so fine you’d think his fingers were made by fairies. But don’t be fooled–mention ‘dust’ and you’ll see a sterner side of Mr. Christ.

A Guide to Gilding the Lily

What’s the equation for improving on perfection? If you’ve joined us before on Pioneer Chronicles, you’ll know that we don’t just produce our own movements – unlike most watch brands, we also make our own escapements and hairsprings.  (It’s been said we’re ‘very rare’.)

Chapter Three
Turning the Tide – Moser and the Revival of Schaffhausen

In Chapter Three, we discover the many contributions Heinrich made to his hometown of Schaffhausen.  From miniscule watchwork to revolutionary railways, there was no project too big or too small for Mr. Moser. Not even putting bread on the table. You can also catch up with Chapters One and Two here. 

Simon Blum

Simon maintains Moser’s impeccable standards–from the hundreds of individual, unique parts to the final finishing touches. Guardian of our watches’ inner lives, he’s a bit like a conductor, directing an orchestra of components and ensuring every single piece is beautiful both inside and out.

Magic Numbers – Our Big Date Display is a wonder to behold

Quite possibly the largest display from a single window ever seen on a watch, our signature Moser oversized date function ensures that you’ll never miss the dawning of Venus’ trine with a Jupiter-Pluto conjunction – whether that means taking out your NASA-style telescope and a star-mapping app, or making a bold romantic gesture to the object of your affections.

Dress Code: Black and White

Opposites attract in our new Venturer Concept Vantablack® Diamonds. As the saying goes, there’s no light without the dark – and when 313 brilliant diamonds encounter a dial that’s blacker than any on Earth, we’re inclined to agree. Meet the seductive, sparkling beauty that’s earning a name on every circuit – from the Ritz to the Riviera.

Drawing the future: two unique timepieces created by children, benefitting children

To celebrate our ongoing partnership with the remarkable organisation ‘Room to Read’, we’ve created two unique and enchanting timepieces.
