Last week, H. Moser & Cie introduced the Venturer Small Seconds Bucherer Edition which pays tribute to Bucherer, the famous Swiss watch retailer which has been around since 1888. The watch is presented in an 18K white gold case that measures 39 mm by 12.5 mm and features an all-new midnight blue fumé dial, as well as an exclusive balance wheel and hairspring, created especially for this model.
Applied indexes and hands in white gold create the perfect juxtaposition with the midnight blue sunburst pattern fumé dial, which is protected by a highly curved sapphire crystal.
Inside, is hand wound caliber HMC 327, which was created with the help of sister company Precision Engineering AG which assists “with the in-house expertise necessary to design, develop, produce and assemble the highly-specialised technical components such as the balance wheels and hairsprings. This expertise was instrumental in developing the blue treatment, creating an impression of depth in the escapement. The result is a piece that features mysterious and constantly shifting sapphire reflections.”
The movement beats at 2.5Hz, has 29 jewels and a 5-day power reserve. It has hacking seconds, a traversing balance bridge, Moser teeth for all wheels and pinions, and a Moser balance wheel and original Straumann® Hairspring with a stabilised Breguet overcoil, both finished in a unique blue colour achieved through a high-precision electrolytic treatment.
The beautifully decorated movement is visible thanks to a see-through sapphire crystal caseback. The power reserve is visible on the back side of the movement. The crown screws-in and is adorned with the letter “M.”
The Venturer Small Seconds Bucherer Edition comes with a hand-stitched black alligator strap with 18K white gold pin buckle with engraved Moser logo and will be available exclusively at Bucherer in Switzerland, Germany and Austria. (Ref. 2327-0202)
