H. MOSER & CIE – ENDEAVOUR CONCEPT COSMIC GREEN LIMITED EDITION
GREEN, THE COLOUR OF HOPE
The watchmakers from Neuhausen am Rheinfall continue their quest for minimalist luxury with the Concept collection, free of any irksome visual flourishes, and now expanded to include a watch with a green dial.
About two years ago, H.Moser & Cie decided to take the opposite direction from brands that specialise in dials filled with logos and other information, billboard-style, and which are so hard to read that the main thing – time – is lost sight of. A return to basics embodied in the minimalist style of a model that later became a collection named Concept. This year, the Neuhausen am Rheinfall watchmakers have renewed the experience with a watch featuring an emerald green dial, the Endeavour Concept Cosmic Green Limited Edition.
H.Moser & Cie love to invent new colours. After “Funky Blue“ comes a new colour christened “Cosmic Green“, a deep green topped off with a Sfumato-type effect, the famous “smoky“ style that is typical of the brand’s dials. We should note in passing that green is a somewhat unusual colour in contemporary watchmaking, but one that seems to be making something of a breakthrough.
Moving across the green disc, like forest foliage, is a pair of hands shaped like… leaves! They show the hours and minutes, while the seconds tick away on a slim second hand. All three hands are silver or gold in colour, depending on the Endeavour Concept Cosmic Green Limited Edition model. They are powered by the HMC343 calibre, with its double barrels providing a power reserve of over seven days.
This manual wind movement is housed in a 40.8 mm case. The watch is available in white or pink gold, with 20 pieces available in each colour.
Price on request.
