Pitch Perfect

Our Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon is a real triple threat, hitting all the right notes and nailing every step. The sex appeal doesn’t hurt, either.

Super Hear-o

We’re not sure if the Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon is more Bruce Wayne or Batman– but it would certainly suit any heroic incarnation. With hammers and gongs visible on the dial above an exquisitely complex tourbillon at 6 o’clock, the superpower of this unique design is to make time both seen and heard. A minute repeater nods to watchmaking traditions of the past, while it’s presentation is sleek and luxurious enough to impress even Catwoman.

Music To The Eras

One of most historic complications in watchmaking, the minute repeater lets you hear the time with a simple flick of a switch. This innovative rendition of the repeater places both the tonal gongs and hammers on the dial side, revealing the intricacy usually confined to the case back. By integrating additional space for a ‘sound box’ on the watch interior, we achieve a beautifully pure acoustic resonance for the chime note. So if your hands are full rescuing kittens from a burning building, never fear: minute repeater to the rescue.

Tiny Dancer

Against the minimalist gradient dial, a magnificent flying tourbillon twirls with delicately choreographed motion. The balletic grace of this complex mechanism is visible behind a skeletonised bridge, where the tourbillon floats on an invisible ball-bearing for utmost accuracy. No detail of this finely-tuned beauty is overlooked, from the 18k white-gold casing, to the 34 jewels within the mechanism, the original Straumann Spiral©, and a hand-stitched black alligator leather strap. Whether in the Batcave, the Dragon’s Den or the Four Seasons, this marvel of ingenuity rings every bell.

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.

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’.)

Turning the Tide – Moser and the Revival of Schaffhausen

Dress Code: Black and White
