Hot Dates

For the very first time, our Perpetual Calendar is dating – and we couldn’t be more proud. We’ve updated the latest member of the Pioneer Family with an easily-legible dual window date display– to keep all pioneers, adventurers, and heroes at the ready, whatever mission they’re on. Never keep a lady (or gentleman) waiting…

The Pioneer, our ‘sportiest’– i.e. adventure-loving– line was launched in 2015. This elegantly contemporary collection is always moving with the times, and recently acquired a brilliant piece of innovation. For the first time in history, H. Moser & Cie. has created a Perpetual Calendar with a dual window display– a stylish creation with two windows displaying the date and month, making the Perpetual Calendar feature immediately legible. Two discs feature the Flash Calendar function, which changes instantly when necessary. The date can be set at any time, with absolutely zero risk to the movement.  

Which means the risks are yours to take… diving in the Algarve? No sweat– this brand new Pioneer features a steel case, water-resistant (and easily read) to 120 metres. Giving you plenty of time to get the water out of your ears before the big event. Hang-gliding from the verdant cliffs of Bali? Our date display is legible in an instant, letting you go straight back to clutching on for dear life and praying to the gods of your childhood to keep you alive until dinner. 

Ask any expectant date, sat fiddling with breadsticks and memorising the winelist while staring anxiously at the entrance– don’t be bloody late. Our Pioneer Perpetual Calendar MD is fitted with a new Manufacture calibre, with a double-barrelled HMC 808 hand-wound movement to offer a comfortable power reserve of at least seven days. So you won’t drop valuable minutes, or even critical seconds that might turn the tides of fate forever. Be there to pull out the chair (and charm the waiter in advance).

There was some animated discussion about what to wear, so we’ve outfitted our beloved innovation with two distinct styles, to suit the mood of the evening. Caviar and champagne on deck at Monte Carlo? Funky Blue Fumé ‘suit’ to echo the depths of the Côte d’Azur, finished with traditional indexes and markers. Underground Blues bar and whiskey sours by candlelight? Begs for our brand new Burgundy number, with a minimalist dial stripped of indices save for the dots that mark the hours – accented by a sleek black alligator strap. Both models feature leaf-shaped hands, accented with Superluminova® (in case of strategic power outage, romantic lighting, or what you thought were very sexy sunglasses). 

The limited edition Pioneer Perpetual Calendar MD pushes all the right limits–class, refinement, practicality, and technical wizardry. Unmistakably H. Moser & Cie., with an irreverent charm and an elegant exterior, we think it’s ready to win any heart.

Go get ‘em, tiger(s).

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. But they’re not just artistic gems – these watches will play an important role in our continued support for literacy projects around the world, championing education as a force for good.

Chapter Two
Heinrich, Man Behind the Myth

In Chapter Two we continue our discussion with Roger Balsiger– this time we cover great-grandpa Moser’s Industrial Era, a Dam good invention, and a certain ‘Outlaw State of Mind’...

Jonas Köppel

Our Head of Escapement Jonas Köppel is far from an Escape Artist– in fact, he can often be found tinkering at home after hours. This time-tamer ensures our watches don’t run wild, and is H.Moser & Cie’’s answer to a cardiologist– caring diligently for the ‘hearts’ of our watches.
