Funky Blues From the Jazz Age: Past meets future in the latest Heritage Tourbillon

You could be forgiven for thinking the ‘Heritage Tourbillon Funky Blue’ was a 1920’s Jazz Club on NYC’s underground scene. In a sense, you wouldn’t be that far off. Because this Heritage Tourbillon is nothing if not a convocation of artistic genius, rich history, improvisation, avant-garde vision–a hybrid of classic and contemporary beauty.

This week, we are introducing this latest model in the Heritage family– a modern ode to our rich history. Far from rehashing a dusty (if beautiful) old model, we’ve married classic lines and shapes from early 20th Century Moser designs– and a particular nod to the pocket-watches of the 1900s–with sharp, contemporary notes and accents… from an intricate one-minute Tourbillon at six o’clock to glowing indices and an electric blue dial.

But if History is the respected classicism of Bach and Mozart, we’ve added a bit of irreverent ‘Funk’ for the future. From a traditional railway minute track–coloured white to give a very modern contrasting result– to sword-shaped hands coated with glowing SuperLumiNova®, and distinctive appliqué numerals finished with Globolight®. No sober alligator straps here–instead, we’ve created an intensely modern Kudu strap in caramel leather, featuring standout white stitching.

And now, for the most important feature of all– the Beat, if you will. The movement of this showstopper is founded on the finest traditional mechanisms. The main act is our exquisite Tourbillon, designed in an interchangeable module that can be assembled and regulated via a simple “plug and play” system. And in the support slot, Moser’s signature double hairspring– two identical springs arranged to move apart symmetrically, maintaining perfect balance and absolute accuracy. Behind the skeletonised bridge of the Tourbillon is an innovative HMC 804 automatic calibre, while our house-designed oscillating weight transfers energy to the barrel with a bi-directional pawl winding system (significantly reducing winding time).

So pour yourself a Sidecar, put your phone on airplane mode, and dust off the Charlie Parker vinyl: the Heritage Tourbillon Funky Blue is here, and it’s time for history to meet the future.
