Buzz had Woody, Sherlock had Watson and Withnail had ‘I’. Without these fortuitous unions, we’d have missed out on some of the best adventures of all time. But what happens when two living pioneers join forces? Brace yourself for H. Moser & Cie. X Bucherer: a collaboration set to make Swisstory.
Something Old, Something New…
To celebrate almost two hundred years of watchmaking, we’ve created two new designs inspired by Moser timepieces from the early 20th century, exclusively for Bucherer. We’ve married the best of yesterday–supreme elegance, classic style, and timeless beauty–with a resolutely modern form and finish that whisks these models neatly into today (if not tomorrow).
For him, classical accents include a steel case featuring tapered lugs and a finely notched crown, traditional minute track, and iconic hand shape. Reminiscent of historical pieces from the H. Moser museum, this watch also has a contemporary edge that literally comes to light as night falls… each hand is finely coated with SuperLumiNova® to stands out beautifully against the fumé dial.
For her (or him with a taste for bling–we live in the 21st century after all) we’ve added a perfectly proportioned 38 mm steel case, showcasing a bezel set with 60 diamonds.
…Something Borrowed, Something Blue
Distinct from previous editions in this exclusive collection, the signature blue of Bucherer has been subtly integrated beneath the surface of the waves– from the lining of the kudu-leather strap, through to the balance, bridge and oscillating weight, elegant references to Bucherer’s iconic hue have been woven throughout the design as subtle accents. A wink, as it were – uniquely for ‘those who know’.
Q to our Bond
A little hat’s off to our sister company too – Precision Engineering AG, the Q to our Bond, technical whizzkids who enable us to design, develop, produce and assemble the highly specialised technical components, such as the balance wheels and hairsprings; their expertise was instrumental in developing the blue surface treatment which adds incredible depth to the escapement.
Happily Ever After
As the confetti settles, the last of the champagne is poured, and someone’s dad makes a final wavering tour of the dancefloor, let the honeymoon commence – this really is a marriage of two minds.
