H. Moser & Cie. has produced 10 pieces of its Endeavour Perpetual Calendar “Funky Blue” in titanium. The combination of DLC treated titanium and the striking shades of its sky-blue fumé dial (“funky blue”) works surprisingly well together, giving the watch a look I really like. And definitely less formal looking than other variations of the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar cased in white and rose gold. The watch is powered by their in-house perpetual calendar calibre HMC 341. The HMC 341 is laudable for powering one of the most streamlined and simple perpetual calendar displays on the market. The Calibre HMC 341 houses the Perpetual “flash date” (adjust fwd or backward anytime) and a month indicator, contributing to the astoundingly simple and iconic design of the Moser Perpetual Calendar .
And as noted 10 pieces have been made, but no more than 9 are still available: the very first owner of an Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Funky Blue in titanium was announced by H. Moser as none other than former German football star Karl-Heinz Riedle.
I am also reminded that H. Moser & Cie. is under new ownership & leadership of the Meylan family for about three years now. From my distant view, I would say that CEO Eduoard Meylan has done a good job of bringing new vision and message to a brand and yes even a bit of youthful and adventurous attitude which we see reflected in some of the brand’s newer watches. Prior to this, H. Moser seemed, quite frankly, adrfit and lacking focus. Today’s H. Moser & Cie likes to say that they make “rare watches” and are not afraid to say that H Moser watches are not for everyone. And I think such focus and commitment in an increasingly challenging high-end luxury watch market is a good thing!
