H. Moser & Cie. Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time
September 11, 2014
The design of the H. Moser & Cie Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time was inspired by elements from traditional pocket watches, and from the 1920s Bauhaus era. The dual-time, tourbillon watch is presented in a polished three piece red or white gold case measuring 41.5 by 14.3 mm.
One of the unique design features is the elegant curved dial which is cambered towards the edge, following the curve of the sapphire glass. Even the swallow-shaped hour, minute and second time zone hands are curved to follow the profile. The dial comes in three variations: Ardoise, red-gold fumé or argenté finish — all with a beautiful sunburst pattern. Moreover, the dial has two-layers with unique finishing on each layer, along with chamfered and polished edges to highlight the two levels.
The one-minute tourbillon is suspended at 6 o’clock via the skeletonized tourbillon bridge and is the centerpiece of the in-house HMC 802 automatic caliber.
The movement beats at 3Hz, has a bi-directional pawl winding system, solid 18K red gold rotor engraved with H. Moser & Cie hallmark, Moser teeth for all wheels and pinions, an Original Straumann Double Hairspring and a power reserve of 72-hours. In addition to being able to look into the movement through the tourbillon aperture on the dial side, the see-through caseback also affords a view, through the back.
The dual time function is indicated via the red hand, that is controlled by a screw-in crown adorned with “M.”
The Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time is paired with a hand-stitched brown or black alligator strap and matching gold clasp, engraved with the Moser logo.
