This morning, high-end Swiss watchmaker Moser announced a collaboration timepiece with streetwear curator Undefeated.
The Moser x Undefeated Streamliner Chronograph is presented in a hefty 42.3 mm x 14.2 mm stainless steel case that’s been treated with a dark gray DLC-coating. Naturally, the integrated bracelet has also been DLC treated in the same gray hue as the case.
A three-dimensional textured black tiger camo fumé dial — with a prominent steel version of the Undefeated emblem that’s been hand applied at 12 — distinguishes this collaboration from past Streamliner offerings. The applied numerals at 3, 6, and 9 have the same DLC treatment. The hour and minute hands feature anthracite great lume inserts to complete the shadowy gray aesthetic.
The movement — that drives the hours, minutes, chronograph with central display and indication of the elapsed minutes and seconds, and flyback on the chronograph minutes and seconds — remains the same as before. Caliber HMC 902 was developed by Agenhor for Moser. The 434 component (55-jewel) 3Hz automatic movement measures 34.4 mm x 7.3 mm and uses a tungsten oscillating weight, positioned between the movement and the dial, to bi-directionally wind the dual mainsprings, which can hold a 54-hour power reserve.
Boasting a column-wheel chronograph with a two-stage chronograph mechanism, a horizontal clutch with a friction wheel, and a smooth wheel equipped with micro-teeth, prevent issues when the teeth intermesh and reduce unwanted jerks when starting the chronograph. The chronograph is controlled by push-buttons at 10 and 2 o’clock.
This is a luxury timepiece designed to be used in sporty situations and has a screw-down crown, see-through caseback, and a 120-meter depth rating with the ability to use the chronograph and flyback function underwater, which is rare for a chronograph.
The Moser X Undefeated Streamliner Chronograph (Ref. 6902-1206) is limited to 76 pieces. Retail is $50,000.
