Today, Schaffhausen-based watchmaker, H. Moser & Cie, introduced a skeletonized tourbillon.
The Venturer Tourbillon Skeleton comes in a 41.5 mm in diameter x 14.3 mm case and is crafted in red gold. An argenté-finished flange frames the skeletonized movement that is fully visible from the dial side. Red gold applied indexes indicate the hours. Leaf-shaped rose gold hands indicate the hours and minutes, with a leaf-shaped blued steel central second-time zone hand.
Located prominently at 6 o’clock is a 60-second tourbillon. A curved sapphire crystal protects the dial, along with a see-through sapphire case-back. The screw-in red gold crown is adorned with an “M.”
Powering this elegant 3-hander is a skeletonized version of automatic caliber HMC 803 which runs at 21,600 vph (3Hz). A bi-directional pawl-winding system wound by a solid 18K red gold skeletonized rotor winds in either direction. Three days of power reserve (72-hours). Additional technical specs include an original Straumann Double Hairspring (Moser owns Straumann), as well as Moser teeth for all wheels and pinions.
The H. Moser and Cie Venturer Tourbillon Skeleton is paired with a hand-stitched brown alligator leather strap with an 18K red gold folding clasp engraved with the Moser logo. Limited to 9 pieces in 2015. (Ref. 2803-0400)
