Only Watch is a charity auction held every two years that has supported research into Muscular Dystrophy, since its inception in 2005. The 2023 auction will be held on November 5th in Geneva.
The Only Watch 2023 Moser x MBF Streamliner Pandamonium (Ref. 6906-1200) is a unique timepiece (one-of-a-kind) created for the charity auction, that represents a collaboration between two Swiss watchmaking brands, H. Moser & Cie. and MB&F, and features a minute repeater complication, which chimes the time on demand, and a miniature panda DJ figurine.
The watch case is stainless steel, measures 42.3 mm x 17 mm, and is based on Moser’s existing Streamliner timepiece, with an integrated steel bracelet. A special aquamarine-colored fumé dial, with the added complication of a minute repeater, and a (non-functional) panda DJ that aptly appears to be spinning records at the base of the (functional hammers) of the repeater.
Driving the hours, minutes, and minute repeater with hour, quarter-hour, and minute chimes is Moser’s manually wound HMC caliber 906, with a large balance wheel suspended above the dial that comes from MBF. The movement beats at 2.5Hz and consists of 395 components with a power reserve of 54 hours.
